    these were before my suspension settled. it now sits a teeny bit lower, but the rear tucks nicely now. H/R Race Springs with Bilstein Sport Setup. i'm running 225/45/17 up front and 245/40/17 in the rears, slightly rolled but on a dip i will rub if im going to fast




    i'm 6'5" so this is comparison to my Hand

    Nice cars, maybe I should stick with the non-M3 bumper. It does seem to be pretty cliche these days.

    not slammed, and i dont know why 94 325is with bilstein sports and eibach prokit springs. Put the springs on my friends 97 328is/A and it is WAY lower..

    But anyways, something differnt. It ate shat and a snowbank one winter. Hella 500's, changed the fog lite holes some and made a weird bracket so i could mount them like a 500 is supposed to. m3 lip cut and screwed. check out those tires too... 215 65 r15... stretched pwahaha

    so because they don't have nice wheels they are distastefully modded? some of us have the wheels for function not form i couldnt't justify spending 1k on wheels if u like everyone running around with m bumpers then that prolly fine by you some of us arent trying to clone m but want a different approach.

    Hmm, well if your wheels for function, and you aren't copying M's, why do you have M3 wheels and M3 exhaust? I am sure your factory wheels worked just fine... But now you pay more for tires and probably have heavier wheels which make your 325 even slower... and hurt your gas mileage some...

    lol, you are contradicting yourself, and my garage queen has more track mods than your car. You should take the money you saved and invest in some grammar lessons, you can't even form sentences.

    Hi swollix,

    You ever been the track? I'm betting no. I haven't even had my car long enough to get to the track, and even I can tell you when he said his wheels are for function, he is referring to the lower profile tires he can run with them. Obviously 17" M3 rims on the cheap-cheap are going to be a big improvement then rolling 15" stockers with balloons (talk about flex) mounted. Not only that, but it seems like you only think about the street when mentioning the downsides for rocking bigger wheels (mileage and weight). Tell me, why don't you mount some 16's on there? It will be a comfier ride and get rid of some un-sprung mass. Oh wait, your larger wheels must be "track mods".

    And if that really is a no, then talking about your "track mods" is just pathetic. If you do track, then you are still coming off as a prick.

    Hmm well because my M3 brakes won't fit under 16's, and by that logic why don't you get 14's? I could care less about comfy rides, I have stiff suspension, fixed back race seats and a gutted interior. And as far as unsprung weight the forged BBS I have are 19.6 lbs. making them lighter than my OEM wheels.

    I wasn't trying to start a fight, I was just voicing my opinion which everyone is entitled to do seeing as how this is a public forum...
