New To The BIMMERWORLD

Previously had a 99 Civic hatch ITR motor and then a turbocharged 00 Integra and also an Acura 1.6EL.. decided to try out the bimmer scene and so far I love my E36 Cabrio, bought it a few weeks ago put M wheels on it and a slight drop in the front and fixing all the little things, Hopefully make it out to some meets and cruises



Not the best picture quality

I love the M68 wheels on the E36. So perfect.

Could you let me know what size of spacer you go with? I have contours on my M3 and want to space them out a bit. I am pretty sure the M68 and the Contours have the same specifications.

Any how let me know if you can.

Thanks

Welcome to maxbimmer and the exciting world of RWD. No need to worry about torque steering lol.

I know the feeling of getting a new car and starting to mod it right away.
But if you want it to last, be sure to replace the coolong system and check the RSM as they are common issues with higher mileage E36's.

Nice Ride

I will for sure, I was told I can get away with a 15mm spacer without rolling , 20mm require rolling...

I'm running 12mm spacers on the front and 15mm on the rear of my M3. Rear fenders are rolled though, and my car is lowered too.

I'd recommend 15mm all around, if you're looking for that flush look.

Thanks, I'm still trying to decide whether to sell or not... I'd hate to see it go, it's a great car and an absolute joy to drive. I'm sure you'll agree.
