Re: Brembo Caliper/AP Racing Style Disc Kit -- Group-Buy Interest Thread

Re: Eibach Pro-Street-S Coilover for E46 M3 tested

6" springs here. I agree that 6" may have been a bit too short with camber plates at the stock 400# rate, but at the 500# rate, it works out very well. I have my car sitting a bit higher than most...

Re: Eibach Pro-Street-S Coilover for E46 M3 tested

I have the 500/600, I love them this way, they are still great on the street but haven't had them on track yet. I need to get the engine back together so I can get it out on track.

Re: UK Estoril Blue M3 - Full CSL conversion with a Manual Transmission

I don't think it necessarily kills the value of the car. I think it more restricts the buying group, but to the right buyer it is worth more, not less.
