Re: APEX ARC-8, Ohlins R/T, Turner Camber

Well I would have been interested in the Ohlins+TMS plates if I didn't drop serious coin on my subframe reinforcement last week. I can never get the timing right lol

Re: Kumho Ecsta PS91 - anyone with feedback on these tires?

My mechanic said a customer recently put them on his E46, said they felt very similar to the PSS and were quite sticky. He doesn't expect them to last nearly as long as a set of PSS which the UTQG...

Re: Does anyone make dark chrome grills and gills?

We should find someone to make them for the E46, I see FCP Euro has a set for the E92. I want darker grilles to match my 260M wheels but do not want to "murder out" my car.
