The only time I'll DIY something is if it's cheaper or less time consuming for me to do it myself. Being a 'man' is about appropriate use of fiscal resources, given that the 'men' of the previous...

Yes, it's a simply bolt-on replacement for everything except the rear fenders. $1100 for the exhaust conversion is probably too high, though.

I use soapy water, a gear puller (strangely enough, I have one - no idea why) and a small block of wood.

Passenger in vehicles only. For all areas unrelated to driving, she's fighting to be the driver instead of me. :angel:

From what I remember, the Style 187s are about 25lb per wheel. Tires of an appropriate size for that wheel usually run about 26-28lb.

You could probably fit 275s in the rear with that offset. Not entirely sure though, been awhile since I've worked with the non-M.

18x8 ET34 front and 18x8.5 ET37 rear will fit E9X models. The Style 193 wheel, as a technicality, is not an M3 wheel (despite any M-designations on the wheel itself).

Are you using 'bolt' as a term to include all threaded or otherwise removable fasteners? Or do you intend to not include screws, grommets, etc?

Very important consideration.

30hp (14%) for $1700 is not what I'd consider efficient, but yes, it should (and, anecdotally, does) perform as described. Turner Motorsports is a particularly reliable source.
