Its pretty clean just some rust around fuel filler cap, but I am loving this. I used to have a 1996 325is for a while, and picked up a 1970's BMW 3 series coupe that I flipped before I started on it, but this BMW has me hooked!

M sport with Racing Lab coilovers and who could not love those M Parallels!

you think they are not wide enough? They came with the car, so I assumed they are fine. Maybe next winter ill get a wider setup (which I would want)

I run 235 and i find it too narrow...i would definitely not go below 225 with the 3.15 diff. That being said, the particular tire makes a bigger difference than the size.

I want to go 255 in the rear and 235 upfront next summer, but I dont want to raise the car, without the spacers hopefully the 255s will still sit flush..right now there are 235s on the rears of the M Pars i used in the summer

My 245 all seasons went on Saturday, and without the spacers they scraped something in the hub on the reat, so put the spacers on and no noise. but they rub on rough roads (obvious), but then something funny happened.

I had spacers on the front aswell (245 tires), and they rubbed when I turned the wheel, no noise/scrape though. I removed them, and the front drivers side is scraping what I think is the dust shield. Not sure what the next step is. Maybe 235 all seasons upfront, or maybe my car is just too low.

No way man... its all in the offset of your wheels! I am running a 305/30/19 out back and a 265/35 in the front on coil overs and no rubs! Mind you to achieve the 305's I needed to roll a bit more in the quarters and add a bit of camber...
