The forged 19s he's talking about come "free" with the car or can be bought, used, for like $600.

Re: Fabspeed Header Review!

Sorry, to be clear, I was referring to the IDs of the primaries, 1.5" for stock and supersprint reps, but 1.61" for the stepped v1s. For OD, that's got to be the 1 & 5/8" you mention. Not a big...

Re: ZCP tires question

Not tall enough, needs another 5% in height, so 35 instead of 30 profile. Probably why the set is such a good deal. Either get 225/40/19 & 255/35/19 or 235/35/19 & 265/30/19 or 245/35/19 & 275/30/19

Re: strut rubbing on front tire 245/40/19

It's not height, it's width that must be causing it as your 8" wheels don't really want a 245 on 'em. Just throw on a 3mm or larger spacer.

Re: *VF Engineering VF420 Supercharger* E46 M3 + 997 intercooler
