standard CSL tire size. 235 fronts and 265 rears.
no rubbing at front, and slight rubbing at rear (not often).i run 12.5mm spacer at back and stock guards. slight rolling or touch more camber and it would be fine.

finally had a chance to get some genuine LED tails. been running aftermarket ones all this time, and while they look just about identical, when the lights are on the aftermarket ones are much much brighter and obviously annoying for people sitting in traffic behind me.

also installed a SS lightweight race system

I used to own a estoril E46 M3 and always regretted not putting the CSL bootlid on it. Really finishes the car and the supersprint lightweight race is the best exhaust to have in my opinion.

Little bit of rear end maintenance. The diff bushes were completely shot. On E46 M3's you can not buy the genuine diff cover bushes individually on their own. A whole new cover must be purchased with bushes already pressed in. I didnt want to go with anything but OEM just to prevent any extra noises..
