    Any idea?
    The S65 will fit in there no problem.

    I just got of the phone with Meullerized. +20 offset wheels is with PSS 295's out back is definitely seems to be a "No" without some fender work. I'm going to get the wheels shaved about 3 or 4 mm (which every advan OK's) and toy with giving it a little more camber to see if they can be wedged under there before more extreme measures are taken.

    Extreme measures being rolling or actually pulling the fenders out wider?

    I'm interested in going wider than the 245F/265R combo.... but I heard some things about scrub radius and such. Are you familiar with how wheel/tire setups change suspension geometry?

    I'd like wider rubber but only if it'll be functional. Otherwise I'll just get different compound tires. I know the stock rims are 19X9F and 19X10R, but I don't have enough experience to know how much wider you could on stock rims before you actually start to lose contact patch....

    I was wanting to go with 275F/295R on the stock rims(Black GTS rims). I think 295 should fit in the back with the 25 offset but I dont know about the fronts. I believe the fronts have a 31mm offset. On the other forum, there was a guy that used the 275F/295R on his M3 with the competition wheels and said he got a 4 second better lap time at road Atlanta.

    The plans for the half cage and rear coil-over conversion are in the works. The cage will be similar to the one in the E92 M3 GT4, but in half cage form, with the strut mounts braced/strengthened for the coil-over set-up.

    I may mod the S65 somewhere down the line. It's a decision I'll make once the engine needs to be refreshed, that is, unless someone gives me an offer I can't refuse for a stroker kit. Realistically, 400 hp is more than enough for a car of this size that will never see a drag strip.

    If you actually do an S65 swap that will be beyond words, amazing.

    Think them as the small shop equivalent of GMG (that actually does good work) without all the fluff, the egos, the cost, and that $#@! Fabryce. The web page caters to the evo crowd and doesn't really show case all the work they do with teams outside of that community.

    Hahah, what is your experience with Fabryce? Is that the guy who used to be at Hartmann (spelling) ?

    I'm not going to haul off and completely shellac the guy. I'm just going leave it at not being a fan of his or GMG's RS4 exhaust.
