It is NLA new, but I would at least mention the Downing Atlanta supercharger that was once sold for the M44. It would bump horsepower up to about 190. A used kit occasionally pops up here and there.

My car is lowered about an inch. I jack it up from the side beam about midway between the two wheels. Speed bumps are not much of an issue as long as I take it slow. I am very wary of parking...

If it is an OEM staggered set, then the answer is NO because the offsets of the front and rear wheels are vastly different.

I installed a Supersprint on the same car (97 2.8). It has a mellow tone at idle, but a rich wail at WOT. The unit is a stainless steel catback with typically impeccable Italian craftsmanship. I have...

Your 98 has a 2.8L M52 motor. The emissions control system might have been shared with other models across the BMW line as listed on that sticker, but no 2.5L engines were installed in Z3's in 1998....

They do look good. It's your car, do what you like. Main issue is that the low offset rear wheels tend to poke out a bit, so many recommend running four front wheels on a non-M.

Interesting, so which is default/standard on the Automatic? I was always under the impression that 3.46 was standard as I have bought two diffs with that ratio and a 3.0 auto was the source for both.

I run 19's on my coupe. The taller roofline of the coupe helps carry it off. Roadsters look better with wheels 18" and smaller.

Wow nice thread bump. Too bad you can't bring the car to NoVa with you, lots of great driving roads here. But also lots of comparable mileage Z3's for sale and very active Z car driving groups!
