So Mike, if I understand correctly....18" wheels are same size all around...and 19" competition package wheels are wider in the back?

If I just get the 19" wheels...then I should get the same wider back effect, right?

...The only real difference between getting EDC + 19" and getting the Comp Package seems to be that different EDC mapping, right? (and it costs $300 more for that, so it is worth it probably).

I am looking at used M3's, and I there are a lot of them with 18" and 19" wheels. I prefer the 19", but if the price with the 18" is much lower, I'm thinking of getting the 18" one and then upgrading the wheels. I just wanted to make sure that there is no significant difference between the two (like different breaks, rotors, suspension, etc).

From what you said, it seems that 19" are wider in the back, and 18" are same width all around. If both cars have EDC and are 2009, then there shouldn't be any difference than the tire size.

Am I correct, hah?
