Re: Bumper Decision - CSL or Euro w/Lip?

This.

I have had all three variations on my two Jet Black cars. Either go CSL or stock. Stick on lips are awful even everyone who saw mine with it (from previous owner) hated it.

Re: The Official Bring a Trailer (BaT) Listing Thread - E46 M3

Since this thread is about BaT, this is what you have to choose from while specifying transmission when you list an E46 M3 there.

Can we move on now?

Re: Ohlins R/T vs. KW V3

You should be fine with standard springs and your current wheel setup. 8.5J generally have enough offset not to cause contact like the popular 9j/9.5j track fitments people run up front.

Guys, enough semantics. Automatics have torque converters. SMG is a manual gearbox with computer operated clutch. It's literally the M in SMG.

These are mechanical facts. EOS.

Re: Sold the Jet Black, picked up an E90 M3

nasieg, given how much E90 ownership you've previously had i'd say skip it. No sense forfeiting an opportunity to try something new and getting something you already know what it's going to be like. ...

Re: DESPERATE for a brushed aluminum trim set in nice shape!

As with any of the aluminum trim, you should put a small piece of clear bra on the tail ends of the front armrests.. they take a beating over time from the seat belt tongues.

Re: Funny, I have both right now..

I've heard you can stretch it to 30-40k miles (about double). 30,000 km is more precautionary than anything. Should not be an issue. Just check them periodically for any excessive wear/leaks. If they...

Re: Funny, I have both right now..

:thumbsup2: I echo Ian. If you are OK with the price and rebuild intervals, the Ohlins are THE way to go. Just wanted to give the KW a fair shake.

Re: The Official Bring a Trailer (BaT) Listing Thread - E46 M3

$31-32k is where most of them suggest, and these are some well-respected members around here. Obviously that price will put some people on their heels but comparable manual cars are pulling $36+++. ...

KW v3: a little more comfortable on the street.
Ohlins R&T: more serious/refined.

I like both because they utilize OEM mounts and are quiet. In that regard, either are a great choice for your...

Re: Sold the Jet Black, picked up an E90 M3

GT4 is tough to beat. My only gripe is the flat spot in the powerband; coming from an S54 it will really take you by surprise. But you can tune most of it out. Other than that it is one of the best...
