stop posting pictures of your awesome car all over here and facebook.
it's making me jealous :P
Quality mate I LOVE this car!
Small side project on my M3. I have VEMS on my car and just bought a super cheap second hand ASUS eee PC to fit in the glove box, then I will use the VEMS to feed a 7" touchscreen double din in the center-console as a wideband monitor, having several tabs awailable with different guages. Radio and heater controls will be in the original location, but the 7" will replace the onboard computer and storage compartment in front of the gearshift.
Basic one will be the AFR/Lambda/boost along with various temps EGT/Water/Oil and also oil pressure and water pressure.
Then also tabs with ignition advance, knock, tps, speed, backpressure and basically everything available. Separate tab for warmup, Track driving and so on.
I will use the guages in analog form, just showing the actual numbers (as big a font as possible) and not use the "dials" layout.
This will also enable for some quick adjustments and datalogging straight to the SD port of the laptop.
Test.. (need to get used to the size of this, maybe get a touchscreen pen"
Just recieved my order from Renn-Reifen.de - Ihr Fachhändler für Sportreifen - Rennreifen, Sportreifen, Semislick, Toyo Proxes R888, Kumho Ecsta V70A / V700, Yokohama A048, Hankook R-S2, Hankook F200, Michelin Pilot Sport Cup, Federal 595RS-Racing, Pirelli PZeroDunlop Direzza 0. I can recomend these guys, ordered and paid Friday by money transfer and they arrived yesterday.
The FEDERAL 595RS-R is by far the cheapes semislick on the market, but that is not the only reason I am going for them. I have in the past tried to have a corner matched Toyo R888 235/40-18 but I felt they ran a bit high, grip was good but not very daily friendly because of the limited capabilities in the rain.
I have also tried running 235/40-18 front and 265/35-18 rear in Michelin CUP which was pretty solid, however the 235/40 up front also ran a bit to tall. Then I have also tried the Pirelli Corsa, but felt they were too hard.
The Federal comes in the best fitment for my car size wise, or 245/35-18 Front and 255/35-18 Rear, however they do run wider than that according to reveiews. Both of them have a lower diameter than a 225/40 let a lone 235/40 so rubbing should be minimal. My car also has some fender work in the back, and negative camber in the front + 5mm spacers.
