I always used the OEM contisport 2's, never had any problems and enjoyed them. Tread looks pretty mean from the back as well. Not sure if you can still get them, but I know they have a new seasonal...

I think the kids in the rav4 got the laugh of their lives, when after stop sign #4 I finally decided to give it a little juice. I think my exhaust and just simply rowing through the gears makes...

Yeah, the ownage wouldn't even be funny in that car. As it is, I think the majority of folks think this is just some old beater 3 series, judging by the daily stoplight racers I encounter.....mostly...

God that's hot! If anyone hasn't seen it yet, there is a feature in the July issue of PBMW with the Piper Motorsport V10 e30 M3. Unbelievable project they undertook, to include full e90 subframe swap...

Haha nice, sounds like some cool pics. Good deal on the LM's, maybe I will think about that for the w201 V8. I'd be all over an RS4 but have heard some bad things about their direct injection re:...

If you hold out for another year couple years with the C43, you can probably skip straight to the C63 for nearly the same price (well maybe high teens/low 20's) with AMG depreciation the way it is....

I was considering BBS (RS or LM), but they are so common on M3's that I kind of wanted to do something a little different. Here is my inspiration:

^^ think part of that might have been the fact that I took that shoot a little too close to the back of the car, so you don't get the curves from the fender flares and such. That being said, the e30...

I hear ya', I'm still getting used to it as well (and I don't have nearly the sideways factor as you). It has a pretty hardcore (aftermarket) track suspension set-up, so there is a ton of feel,...

Nope, but that is a nice car. It's a DS M3, though the seller is an inactive member on BFC and r3v. She previously owned a really nice looking M Coupe/shoe as well.

I agree :) I'm certainly no purist, and while the e30 M3 is one of my all time favorite cars from an aesthetic standpoint, I had no desire to have an s14. Have had enough underpowered, rev happy...
