I guess you guys haven't looked the replacement costs of tires, and the fact that there are way more tire choices for 18s than 19s. Especially the sticky stuff.

The 6-speed is awesome, it's smooth, direct and efficient....no need for DCT.

Who knows how reliable the DCT is in the end?

92 M3 18" rims fit on a Z4 M Coupe?

Hi Guys,

Do you think that the new M3 18" rims would fit on the Z4 M Coupe? It would be nice to have a bigger tire up front.

Thanks,

I've driven the C5 Z06, C6 Z06... but honestly it's comparing apples to oranges. You can't compare a true sports car to a sport sedan.

A good comparison is driving an RS4, M5, C63AMG, IS-F. So far...

The current weights assume included options, so once you add all the packages.. it will probably climb close to 3800lb in weight.
