17's, but I'd also like to point out that I F-ing LOVE your color. So much jelly from this end!.. Thanks for the write up, and if you noticed a difference that's all that matters. I'll probably be doing something very similar as an E92 M3 sway has come across my table (DIY of course).

It's not tough to DIY if you are mildly handy. And it definitely makes a difference. Less roll, for sure, but also more effort to turn/increased understeer. Depending on my mood, that's occasionally annoying, but usually nice. Of course, my issue is that I don't have the sport seats, so really sharp cornering puts me against the door! But that's not the fault of the mod :-)

And thanks for the color props. There was a long thread about how people hated this color (mostly people who had only seen it in car show photos) but I was lucky enough to see one in person (the first, and until me I understand the only, such car in NorCal) and really liked it. I cannot count the number of times strangers have seen it in a parking lot and complimented me on it. The gfriend just rolls her eyes, now, it happens so much. It meant waiting an extra 8+ weeks for a special order from Germany, but it was worth it.
