Even still, $75-80k for a special edition based on a 2 series, which you can buy for under $30k, is going to be a stretch. But hey, the m4 gts exists which is a similar exercise.

Re: Double Duty Street/Track Tire

This sums it up well. My fastest laps are on the 71R but I have had RS3, Direzza z2 last at least twice as long.

Good point. Kind of moot, for me at least, seeing as my car (DD) has <27k on the clock :facepalm:. They do ride very nicely though!

Re: What's up M3 Forum - TehStig got me

Re: What's up M3 Forum - TehStig got me

What about a 1M specific kit? The 1M is slightly heavier than your car but closer to it in weight than e90 m3.

I just installed the Ohlins DFV coilovers on my 1M. Lots of adjustment range for both...

Re: Gmc 2500hd mods round 1

Re: seat mounts failure

Porsche fixed back seats, modern units at least, are actually multi-piece seats and they do not require a roll bar. Many owners install them anyway as it allows for proper harnesses.
