I still want m5. I would even settle for a 535i.

Looks sexy, I'd get coilovers, but then I'd need some fender work + camber to get my summer wheels to fit. I'm just going to go for some m3 control arms and call it a day, supposedly it fixes the nervous vague feeling on hard uneven bumpy corners.

Not pictured are bfg Rival tires, Bremmer Kraft br08 wheels, hawk ht10 pads, turner full chassis reinforcement kit, and ecs tuning rear suspension refresh kit. I just need a second race seat (stupid requirement of having the same seat for passenger as driver), rear camber arms and front camber shims. Then fab up some brake ducts. This car is going to be the death of me... But at least it will be fun.

Very nice. You're going to have to come back to the midwest area for a few track events this year.
Tire rack had a big sale on rivals, did you get it through them?

Yep. 245/40/17 for $119 each. I'll be back up in Ohio for a weekend in April. But not really enough time to do anything crazy. 9.5hrs each direction eats up a lot of a weekend.

Today I ordered the second seat setup. Tomorrow I have to call Bimmerworld about the control arms and other misc stuff. But I have everything done except putting the subframe back together and in the car. So hopefully I can finish it up after work tomorrow

I've seen that car at a meet here in Charlotte. I'm thoroughly jealous.

My car is back on the ground. The rear will settle a bit more but the ride height is just about where I want it. I just need to put a new rear caliper on, bleed brakes, align, and test drive.

I need new tires for PA inspection, the snow is really making me wary of putting the new summer tires on.

This weekend is supposed to be sunny and in the mid to high 60's. And guess where my car is? Stuck in the shop because I couldn't get on the alignment rack.

Well I took my car to the track yesterday. Things were going well in the first session. I wasn't pushing it very hard, maybe 75-80% of potential. The car felt planted with the KW Clubsports and BFG Rivals. The brakes felt great with just good fluid and Hawk HT-10 pads. Well, I was working through traffic when I came up to a 997 turbo and I started smelling brakes. I figured it was from his stock pads. He gave me a point by and I jumped on the brakes for the next corner. For some reason the car felt super tail happy and pulled to the left so I pulled off into the pits to check things out. Immediately when I stopped I saw smoke rolling off the right front...oh boy. Turns out the right front caliper seized up and completely destroyed the rotor, pad, piston dust boot, and wheel centering ring. So I parked it for the day and limped it home. I'm not too sure what avenue I'm going to go with the brakes just yet. Whether to go ahead and upgrade or just replace the front brakes with new M3 calipers.

So, since I was done driving after ~9 laps, I talked some friends into going to the kart track on the way home.

Sucks to hear, could have been much worse though. I'm thinking of just overhauling the 135i suspension over the summer. Dinan springs were the only stiffer springs that won't lower the car more than 1/2", might just combine them with bilstien HDs, and the m control arms all around and call it a day.
