Default redice's Spring 09 Updates!! Springs/Spacers/OEM CSL Bootlid..plus more!

So it's almost been a year since I purchased my M3 and with that I would like to share my mods that I have done so far for the new year!

I recently took advantage of a local group buy we had and got my subframe reinforced by TKX Performance here in NY. Along with the subframe, I decided to put in my new tires, springs, and spacers all in one shot.

I am running 245/35ZR19 / 275/30ZR19 Goodyear Eagle F1 Asymmetric's with Eibach Pro Kit Springs and Macht Schnell 15/12mm Spacers



Springs:



Stock Springs


Side by Side Comparison to stock (on top)







The ride definitely got bumpier from stock. But being that I did not want/need coilovers at the moment I think it was worth it given that it gave me the perfect drop I wanted.

Spacers

I want to thank Tom at EAS for providing this and throwing in some M3Forum.net stickers too





The detail on the spacers is definitely a nice touch.



For my setup (with the springs) I do not rub one bit. 15 Front, 12 Back











Up Next...OEM CSL Bootlid!

Nice, I've got the MS spacers as well. I almost hated to install them, they're so perty.

Default OEM CSL Bootlid

I recently got lucky and scored a OEM CSL Bootlid from the marketplace.

I want to thank Ced for providing the bootlid, and Fern for proving his much needed wisdom in getting this to fit close to perfect (only made some minor adjustments and probably can get it to fit better).

















Oh this too...ordered a righthand drive passenger keyhole cover from Tischer, and to my surprise the cover came with the inner metal piece as well (not needing to reuse the locking mechanism anymore).
