OK Sorry if my information is wrong.

BUT.If you fitted BBK number 1N1.9003A 380x34 2-piece Front and 2P1.9013A 380x28 2-piece Rear then i am correct you can fit 19"

I would say 19" is perfect for performance and 20" for look.

We all , being auto enthusiasts , should not crib about what KD has got done to his vehicle . We should be happy . Very few people , like KD , know that much about cars and we should be happy of the fact that he shares every single thing that he gets done to his rides . KD's cars are the best cars around Chandigarh . Peace . No offence to anyone .

Congratulations on the Hamann Exhausts and the New rims . Keep up the good work , KD !

Look man, I am sure you are some mechanical genius and memorized part numbers. I contacted Brembo and gave them my car's specs (suspension drop,thickness of tires,tread,rims to be used and every info they needed) and they recommended that I use 20" rims as they will be the safest option. So how does it matter of 19" is better or 20? Am I ever gonna track it? No. Do I like the look? Yes. Did the brake manufacturers recommend this rim size? Yes.


EDIT - Thanks Sanchit. That was much needed, but if I said that, people would just flame me.

Awesome upgrades on the M3 and the LP640 Ecks, The M3 looks great with the new Set of rims and tires. The M3 is slowly but surely heading towards to be the best modded M3 in the country. I am sure the Mod list is not gonna end here, Whats next??

Next will either be a stroker Dinan 4.6 litre engine or a supercharger kit. Should be on the car in the 6 months or so buddy!

M , RDSport is an in-house tuning program, whereas Dinan can ship the engine. Dinan says that the engine+dinan mods should bump the power to 520 and torque to ~400 lbs.

@Karan: Bro, wasnt your M3 supposed to be your daily drive? What's with the enormous mods? Not that we aren't enjoying it but the stock M3 is anythin but underpowered. and with your present car putting out 490 rwhp, do you really need anymore mods on a daily drive car? Just my 2 pence.
Sorry, I just wrote stupid stuff. Keep 'em coming.

Shamik, there is no substitute for power! Its not making 490 rwhp but 490 at the crank. And yes , the stock M3 is under-powered , believe it or not , and doesn't sound that great either(to me). I guess I want all my cars to be unique,so I modify them according to what I feel suits the car's personality best.

I think i saw that coming Karan. 490 @ crank = what rwhp? To someone accustomed to a LP640 i guess everything's underpowered.
