Wow you got pretty lucky with that. What studs were they? I vote fender flares now since you have to repair it

Hmmm damn, I didn't think of this earlier because I just ordered another set of the street studs from BimmerWorld. I think I'll try to return those and go with the race studs. I don't blame the product for the failure, they timed out, and my own habits and frequent-ish tracking didn't help.

I'd be lying if I said the thought hadn't crossed my mind. The damage is pretty minimal though, and I'm not sure I want to take the dive... Fender flares are a very big move, I know myself well enough to know flares would also mean new wheels, a roll bar, buckets, etc etc etc suddenly I have a race car. Not sure I want to do that right now lol. I'm gonna bring the car into my body shop sometime soon and get their $0.02, and also get a second opinion... You know what I really do like though, the way this guy molded E46 non-M arches.

I would consider something like this. But the money... Bodywork and full respray, my wife would ****ing MURK ME.

Don't do it. Keep the stock appearance.

I really don't think I will be doing anything more than the absolute minimum needed to fix it so the panel doesn't have the potential to rust.

My boy Mike caught me riding dirty... Literally. I think there's about 4 or 5 weeks of dirt on there right now.



You can see here it's not damaged enough to even really see on the exterior.



I REALLY need to give the old girl some TLC now that I see how ridiculous it looks LOL.

Save the jack stand comments please was just pulling the wheel quickly to check shit.

Your ring pictures are amazing! Thanks for sharing

Great color for the E36 too, feel like I see so few of them in Hellrot.

Really like the way the molded E46 arches look.

This type of failure is always in the back of my mind. Glad it went as well as it could have for you.

See you back on track soon.

Sucks about the damage. One thing to remember is not to re-torque your wheels right after you end a track session. This will cause excess stress on the bolts. Give everything a chance to cool down, then check wheel nut torque before you head back out.

lol @ shoes comment I'm a big fan of animal prints.

BimmerWorld race studs arrived today, hoping to have the chance to swap these out this weekend.
