Thanks man.. What I would suggest is find the closest reseller for TC Kline or Ground Control in your area.. For example if one is close near your boarder you might want to drive down there and pick it up instead of paying rediculous taxes/shipping.

Keep us updated on what you decide..

WOW hot interior :)

Your interior looks beautiful. I hate the fact that E46 M's dont look good with an aftermarket wheel

Thanks it goes with the flow I guess.. due to the black interior. Here's another picture with the MOMO Race 350mm steering wheel

great, now I'm driving a bus:confused:

Graham.. you can always change your steering wheel.. I just find the smaller one more simple and nicer to handle. the 350mm is not that small compared to the stock one which i think is at 360/370mm?

UPDATE: TC Kline S/A coil-over just arrived with 500 f/600 r springs rates.. I'll post pics later tonight

FYI: DO NOT SHIP ANYTHING WITH UPS damn I paid extra $200 CND for their stupid processing fees!!! custom = $0 CND wtf!!

As for the eurosport cam kit, it's just right at the border near Toledo, OH.. It should be here in three days 11th.. This one will come in from Fedex so I guess they will r*pe me again in fees!!

I'm impressed with the build quality of this coil-over, I can't wait to get them installed *mw*

For reference here's my m coupe before the coil-over install.. I'll post the picture after the install hopefully, Thursday afternoon.

Picture taken at last Sundays autocross. Thanks to Mike for taking the picture *th-up*

Took Friday night to remove the carpeting/panels on the coupe and install the rears. And then pretty much the whole saturday afternoon to install the fronts.. Took the car to the M Coupe cruise but felt that the ride height was not right so I took the time tonight to fix the issue..

Took the rear adjuster out and put 5mm pads at the rear.. Result = 23 inc

I did leave 1/2 inc from the bottom and that gave the same results = 23 inc

Anyways, I went ahead and ordered the 5mm spacer and 600lbs shorty springs from TC Kline so that I can slam the car :)

Also, for some reason my 18" breyton visions was rubbing the front spring and thats with the highest setting.. I put my roadstars on to fix the issue...

Can't believe it's coming to reality...

Fedex have some toys for me after 500 CND worth of custom fees lol..
