I've given my 2 cents, but here it is again.

First of all since you have an M3 for real high performance driving, I don't see the need for you to go bat-crap-crazy with the 250. For that reason I...

Seriously, your best bet for matching paint is a junk yard. If you can find the right color at a yard that will sell just the tow hook covers.

I wouldn't start with plasti dip as a basecoat, I'm...

Calm down this isn't anything new. Just because you can "flash" an ECU doesn't mean you can change the fuel/timing and make more power. Anyone with an eBay OBDII cable and Techstream can "flash"...

I think you are probably going to have to do some experimentation yourself. I don't know of anyone else on these forums who has a set of Fortune Auto coilovers like yours.

I'm very interested to see how you like the re-valved shocks once you have driven on them.

Dunlop Direzzas are not R compounds. They are among the best "street" tires available for use on the track. If the car is set up properly, and the tire is sized appropriately even on the track you...

My 2 cents:

265/40 18 is pretty big for the front of the car. Bigger diameter, bigger width, without a-lot of work you are going to rub all over the place. I wouldn't try and track the car with...

It is highly unlikely that a 9" wheel with a 35mm offset is going to contact an IS250 brake caliper. I tried a 17x9 with a 48mm offset and it BARELY rubbed the caliper on my IS350.

Not only that, there is a good chance they will rub the inner fenderwell.


But with 15mm spacers they should fit, but sill won't be flush with the fender. You might have to give up your...

That is a really big tire for the front of the car. 1.5" + bigger diameter, and almost an inch wider than the largest stock tire that comes on a 2IS. I would expect rubbing.

I would disagree that the Falken RT-615K is the best autocross/track tire. It has a cool tread pattern, and gets great traction up to a point, but it suffers from the same problem the older RT-215...

^ If you are having a shop do the work the price between paint and powdercoat is going to be negligable. I wouldn't even consider paint if I was having someone else do the work.

For better or worse, I stopped paying a-lot of attention to factory alignment specs, so I don't remember what they are. I think somewhere in the range of 0 to -1.5 degrees for camber? :confused:
