Project BMW M3: Our Car Gets a New Foundation

Update by David S. Wallens to the BMW M3 project car
Sep 27, 2018

Our E46-chassis M3 recently received a new Bilstein B16 coil-over suspension, plus some wider street wheels and tires. You know what that means? Time to do some corner-weighting and alignment.

We demonstrated the process during an episode of GRM Live!, but if you missed out on any details, you can watch it again on our YouTube channel.

The new street setup, by the way, features TSW Ascent wheels: 18×8.5 inches up front and 18×9.5 inches out back. That setup allows us to run the 255/35R18 Toyo Proxes T1 Sport at all four corners. Look for more on this car in a future issue.
