    OK, thanks for the information. I don't mean to be bothersome.

    I believe he stated remote tuning for turbos is not possible.

    A direct-port tuning solution with two or three "dummy" buttons programmable by the end user would be something else!

    Thanks for all the input guys. (so i have a lot to learn , A LOT) But i'm looking for moderate gains in power , the car really does not have to make 250hp to the wheels, i just threw that number out there.

    Would some like to explain Pulleys and their advantages ( i have a lot of questions and that is one of them)

    Pullies are mainly an idea of reducing rotating mass that the engine must move, thus exerting less force (and using less power) to operate ancillary systems (A/C, for example).

    However, sometimes adding pullies can result in finicky electrical systems operation, for example weak radio output, particularly in the case of upgraded stereo components.

    I'm sure the more technically knowledgeable folks can weigh in with more details but that's the short and sweet of it.

    Him stating something doesn't mean anything to me.

    But I think I asked in the wrong thread. Let me find the correct one and bump it again.

    Sir,
    please source me some S52 cams for $250.
    I will pay a premium mark up
    (and sing you a song.)

    I await your ability.

    Are the M DS2s staggered?

    Why would you need to roll the fenders or modify ?

    Is your 328 an E36? or E46?

    Have you lowered your 3 yet?

    I wouldn't suggest the 45Rs.
    Did the DSIIs come with those tires?

    45rs CAN BE too tall for LOWERED vehicles, yes, and will show improper speed due to height.

    I may be wrong.

    Again... are the rim widths STAGGERED? (two narrow two a bit wider for the rear)

    Measure the width of the RIM, not the tire please.

    I agree. A 45 in the rear is too tall.

    Call up tire rack and ask what they suggest, I run after market 18's I don't remember what I have on my DSII's.

    You should not have to roll your rear fenders with the correct tire.

    You do not need to roll your fenders. I had a 328i with DS2's staggered. The tire size is wrong in the rear though. You want 245/40 17's rear and the 225/45's are good in front, but 235/40-17's are best for the front. For suspension, I have Bilstein sport shocks & struts with H&R sport springs. I've had them for the past 5+ years. They are a great sport ride that allow for everyday drive-ability.

    I personally recommend adjustable coilovers. IMO they are worth the added cost.

    Well since I have ds2's the better then contour rim set. I'm running 245/45/17's all around, and yes you will rub on the front strut's, and on the rear fenders if you are running falken azenis tires as I am. I had my rear fenders rolled they didnt do a great job, but I have adjustable lower rear control arms. I had a friend adjust the rear camber abit I now have no rub, but I would not run 245/45 or a 235/45 on a dropped car. Now if you already have the tires give it a shot to get fitment, and if they rub sell them. You should go with what switlikbob said for tires, and you should have zero issues.
