M3 CS, here we go again

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
So I got out of my Nardo Gray 17 6MT, which was mostly "This is 2005 Japanese Tsukuba car" themed




went drag racing


went road course racing



And into a '18 CS model now.


Did some interior mods to start,



but moved over the advans and Swift Springs today, albeit in a new color.





Waiting for some more stuff to come, but i will probably actually drive it some as well, still only 50 miles total lol.
instagram @h8nm3 for just car
my personal/mixed one is @paik_man

Anyways this car is awesome. Never thought i'd like a color more than my Nardo till I saw this in the showroom. They did a good job adding oem touches to make it special.

I can't give too much insight unfortunately, as I said I only have 50 miles on the car. The car does seem to put down power better initially but that could just be dct vs 6spd stuff.

Whats your wheel specs? What's your front lip clearance? I want to reduce the gap and fill it in, but I can't lower my CS.

I had Swift's on my last car and beat up the front spoiler too much. I'm afraid to lower this one as well although it's so tempting! Good job!

Do you drive around with those sparco gloves on? I think I asked you this on FB but what did you do with your Nardo? Assuming you traded it in at Alexandria?

its been..interesting. had to google what the 3 bars were and after manual upshifting didnt know it stayed in manual mode after being in D...little funny stuff. when reversing my left foot hit the floor since no pedal there LOL.
but the power delivery seems amazing when rolling through 2-3-4 . i am pretty convinced this car is faster than my "stage2" 6mt was even if its lower rated power.

i have been yeah, all of my friends with the electronic perf wheel said just use gloves if you can. even being careful and cleaning with sonax/etc isnt as preventive as just using gloves. I only drive it like 3000 miles a year so not a biggie for me. my daily is still a little 99 civic lol
and yep used alexandria(where i ordered the nardo from). my lease on the nardo was almost up so was able to work out a deal that made sense. you can see on my nardo to yeah had like no miles even after 2.5 years

i am not too sure on the clearance. My last car has the OEM 3 point lip which i think does have more ground clearance since it kind of curves up through the middle portion.
the wheel specs are 19x10 +22 square. 275-35-19 hankook rs4, which they just blatantly lie about for people who compete on it. this is a 285/295 in other brands.
