I sold my 2003 M3 and bought a 2006 EVO IX MR. It isn't as fancy as the M3 but it runs it into the ground when it comes to how it handles and brakes. And very shortly it will be much faster when it comes to acceleration, too.

I say take the wing off, if possible.

the wing serves a purpose it's not just tacked on. they even added a gurney flap to the trailing edge to eek out a little extra downforce. it also has a front diffuser under the lip area and brake ducting.

Yeah I know it's stock but in my opinion I think it would look better without it. But if you are going to run the car fast enough so the wing is effective then yes, it is better left on.

Hello everyone, I myself am 17 years old and I have two cars. A 1983 Mazda RX7, with 53k miles and the GSL package (which has a limited slip diff and 4-wheel discs) and a 1989 Saab 900 turbo (which I got for $600 and is a huge piece of shit). Pictures:

You really don't wanna run an EVO without the wing. It's just not right at all. Perhaps the lack of all the previous EVOs over there has meant you aren't used to it. They've been going for nearly 15 years here so the huge rally wing is part of the genes :D

lol, entenhausener ;)

what happened to the rear numberplate??

[german]das sind die h?ndlernummernschilder, jetzt hat er nat?rlich die richtigen dran. der h?ndler hatte damals einfach vergessen auf der zulassungstelle anzugeben das es ein amrekanischer import ist und somit hinten die andere gr?sse braucht. deswegen haben wir das da ein bisschen provisorisch festgemacht.
leider hatte ich probleme mit dem k?hlsystem, weswegen ich die letzten wochen garnicht nutzen konnte, weil er in der werkstatt war. kann ihn n?chste woche wieder abholen und bin wieder um 700? ?rmer. :thumbsdown:

werd dann mal neue fotos machen, vorallem in besser quali[/german]

learn german if u want to read it! :mrgreen:

Been a while, but i got some new wheels and adjusted my coilovers to lower the car more.

Wheels are 17x9.5 +17 Work Emotion XD9 all around
Tires are Falken GRB FK-451 in 235/40/17 front, 245/40/17 rear.

I had to roll front and rear fenders and pull the rears a bit, and i'm running 3 degrees of camber all around. Yes, it is not a performance alignment, but I won't be able to hit the track with school so it's in "daily pimpin'" mode =P

Took a helluva a lotta work to get it to not rub anything and achieve full lock, and driving in the city is annoying, but i think it looks pretty good, and i managed to stuff decent tires on there. Dedicated drifters would go with something even skinnier just for the heck of it.

When its track time again i'll look for something forged and some max performance summer tires.

Guess what these strange marks are and get a cookie:
