    I have camber plates, and I haven't installed e36 m3 control arms yet. So there's the look, if you don't install 96+ m3 control arms. I got the arms (ball joints installed), but haven't had enough time to install them yet. In a few weeks, I'll get it knocked out.

      You beat me to it...I'll be getting mine on in a few weeks. Looks great. How'd you get them to fit with the rattle clips? Spacers? What size tires are you running? I just ordered a set of 214/40 Falken 912's.

        215/40 I think. The front I have the rattle clips in but my break pads are worn down to about 50%. On the rear I now have 3mm spacers and it fits perfect with my fenders. Now my fenders are rolled flat but even without spacers you will need to roll your fenders.

        I hope this helps

                It gets more redefined each day it I go to work. Its rust/paint/metal. I am redefining hoods.

                But I really do hate the hood with a passion. I have been to lazy to look for a new one.

                      Yes. Notice that car is iX. Front hubs in ix are same type as rear hubs. The reason to use 1-series hub is, because it is only 10mm wider than ix stock hub. For examle e30 m3 rear hub is ~20mm wider.

                                that really is the most interesting setup so far, I am very tuned in to see pics.

                                TI hubs wouldn't fit into IX bearings, did you have a spacer machined?
