    Lots of truth there. I just read higher up to see that he's doing the body himself. Will be awesome.
    Keep it simple: half gutted '01 330i, welded diff, BC coils, SLR Super kit

    Track is Track.

    This is ain't no Cameron/Gordon car.

    Still interested in what body style OP will be mimicking/copying?
    There has to be a GOAL.

    Please show image of "prospective" result.

    Look in the rides/style section for a blue e36 m3 (most likely from 4-5 years ago)

    Reading back, my comprehension needs work.

    So you plan to mimic the E46 lines.

    I have to get new 18x10.5 wheels and I canít decide between the ARC-8ís or the SM-10ís. Let me know what you guys think.....
    I am biased on the dished ARC-8s personally. They just look so aggressive and fit the E36s style so well. I get compliments all the time on them. I just wish I could run the fronts without spacers and clear the Stoptechs. Had to roll all 4 corners and run some negative camber on all too. 18x9s ET30 on all 4 corners

    Here they are on mine

    Iíd like the same lines/look as stock with larger arches to accommodate the tires. Think Hard Motorsport flares without the seams or screws. I would like to figure out how to reduce the exposed frontal area of the front and rear tires..

    It looks like you have the v2 flares.

    This is from the link posted earlier.

    A few
    I'm pretty sure the E36 in the photos that jakermac posted used E46 M flares. It's too much IMO. The Estoril one above is much more OEM looking.

    The estoril one uses E46 Non-M front fenders.
    I want to do the same to my rear fenders.
    like this great example:
    http://www.speedhunters.com/2017/12/...t-cohesive-m3/

    I am just to much of a pussy to do it myself, and too broke to pay someone for it, so that might take a long time.

    Very curious to see how the job on yours will end up Chikenhed!

    The estoril M3 is local to me but Iíve never seen it other than in photos. I believe he is running 285ís but says he can fit 295ís. IMHO the front of the front arches doesnít look right, like they had to do something funky to get the front of the e46 arch to work. Iíve given the shop one e46 front fender to cut up and see if they can use it but the owner said that itís most likely that they will just make the arches instead as they will fit better. When you take an arch that is not meant to fit and you try to make it fit then you end up with thing looking not quite right like the estoril M3 or the Lang M3 above. That said, we donít know all the challenges ahead to fit the tires or the vision my body guy has from the info Iíve given him, which does include pictures of both cars and pointing out their flaws. One of the constraints I gave him was that the flare canít go into the gas door.

    Sounds very good! The black one in the speedhunters article is for me the one that did the best job of the 3 cars mentioned here. It is below the gas door as well, which makes it look like it is stock.

    Doesnít look like he can fit 295¬ís though.

    Thatís because that human is a stance human.

    They like wide wheels with thin tires. A special kind of human

    Also known as a ďstancy nancyĒ, as the OP likes to call it.

    I laughed out loud when I first read that post.
    My first e36 was a bit stancy Nancy.
