This is my baby.
add me to the list of ppl who'd like to see pics.
Chris Harris guested on a car show recently (forgot which) and tried to make the argument that more tech is actually starting to make cars worse. his argument that the e46 m3 is basically the pinnacle and then it was all downhill with higher performance but less driver "connection" (my words, not his) from there.
doesn't make me feel particularly good as a e90 owner but I do see what he's on about. I'm keeping my 330ci mainly because it's worth more to me than it could ever be to someone else, but there is something about the way it drives that's....missing in more modern cars. except the 458 Italia.

10 years later, all I see is this: the E46 M3 would've looked so not try-hard and so much more overachieving if you put all of that into the wagon package.
These at home (daily giving my track car a hand...)
This when I visited the US of A... (I didn't want a convertible!)
Don't like the car. But I like the picture it self, photoshop?
^ What year? It looks really great and clean mate!
The RAC's are 'Neez' in Japan. They're of good quality and forged on the same forges as many name brand wheels (there's only a very small number (2?) of wheel forges here as they're multi-million dollar machines) , but the NEEZ brand itself is horribly misguided and needs some management or a restructure of some sort.
whoa, that looks excellent B
the RAC/Neez guys really know their stuff - i've been trying to get my offsets to look like that but have become pretty frustrated with it. i'm currently running a set of BBS LM's that are supposedly the right size for the M but i think it needs to come out a little to have the stance look more like yours. did they get the wheel weights under 20 lbs for 19's? there really hasn't been anything in that weight range except for ugly Volks and Oz's.
The RG-4s are 22.5lbs +37 offset fronts, and 23lbs +25 offset rears...about the same weight as the CSL wheels were, but a half inch wider.
For a small deposit, you can get a fit testing kit for Rogue hubcentric spacers if you want to see how different spacer offsets look with your LMs:
The RS-110s were RACs light race wheel for the E46...if I remember correctly, 18lbs.
Some sets were staggered, others square for the serious trackies.
Yea a little bit of editing.
Hmmm.. E46 M3 wagon...?
