#12 of 21 RE: BEST EXHAUST SYSTEM FOR MY M3 [m34shez]
May 13, 2006 (9:57 am)
If your looking for a top of the line exhaust for the E46 M3, Dixis of Japan makes some killer systems, some as high as $20,000 dollars, which is honestly quite rediculous, otherwise an awsome system is by Powerhouse Amuse out of Japan also, the quality is unmathced and the asthetics are just disgustingly gorgeous, the A1 titan system is a complete titanium tig welded design, that flows 35% more, its the best exhaust I've ever seen, you can check it out on bullettproofautomotive.com
#14 of 21 Fikse or HRE Wheels ?
Sep 13, 2006 (2:50 pm)
I'm going to purchase either Fikse Profil 10's or HRE 541's for my 2004 Imola Red M3 Convertible. I've not found exact weights for either wheel compared to the stock 18" wheels, and I don't know which one is stronger (for some reason neither Fikse or HRE has this information?). Anybody familiar with these two brands? Any other recommendations?

FYI, if you're still in the market for some wheels for your m3, check out kinesis wheels. they look really good on m3's. i have an '03 m3 and am thinking about getting them. my father has a 2006 911 carrera S with 19" kinesis wheels and it looks awesome. the web site is below and they actually have some photos of m3's with the one piece forged wheels.

Im own a luxury tuner shop on the East Coast, and I heard some things about DINAN. DINAN isnt doing very well in US markets, due to their difficult product availability they have suffered. DINAN will only allow BMW dealerships wholesale purchase their products, well that isnt entirely accurate, DINAN mandates that any wholesale operation must have a BMW Master Tech on hand during all business hours. Also the Master Tech must stay up on current models, well there is NO way to do this unless they work at a BMW dealership becuase BMW, like most major manufacturers, only allows dealership employees to attend training sessions. So there would be no way to keep up with current models. DINAN is also expensive, more expensive than most. DINAN's downfall can be attributed to the sucess of tuners such as Active Autowerke and EVO Technik. Evo Technik is going to be explosive on the BMW tuner market in the US. So you might want to look at all of the options before you make a decision.

HRE, you cant hardly beat the wheels and they arent too badly priced for what you get. I like HRE's and thats what I recommend to my performance oriented customers. Anyways, I like the HRE's.

I would take any used bmw to a dealership to get looked over before buying one, as I had a used m3, and had a ton of problems, because of poor repairs in the past.
It was a blast to drive tho!
#21 of 21 M6 Wheels on a M3
Mar 05, 2009 (2:14 pm)
Hi M3 owners,
I found a set of M6 wheel & tire that i'm going to take a look in this weekend & intended to buy it for my 04-M3. The bolt pattern is the same so it would fit. But does anyone know is there anything wrong to use M6 wheel on a M3 b/c the wheel offset may be different from one another?
Any insight from your past experience or comment is most welcome
The M6 wheels look very sporty & the tires are still in great condition. The price is very reasonable & i really like to have them
