Lightweight BMW Wheels
LTW Motorsports * MSRP: Website
Info: www.ltwmotorsports.com
D-Force Wheels and LTW Motorsports have come together to bring an economical and lightweight wheel to the BMW market thanks to Flow Forming technology. Flow Forming is a hybrid manufacturing process where the wheel centers are low-pressure cast in molds using high quality aluminum. Casting is done on a mandrel by simultaneously heating, spinning and pressurizing to forge the outer section of the wheel. The outers are eventually heat-treated to resist bending. These hellacious hoops are available for BMW 3-Series from E36 to E90 in 17" (16-16.6 lb) and 18" (18-19.2 lb) and these wheels should fit the budget-minded enthusiast who wants performance too.

BMW M3 Pricing
The long-awaited BMW E92 M3 finally goes on sale this month. The fourth generation M comes to the US with a 4.0 liter V8 capable of 414hp. The weight distribution is also ideal for the driving enthusiast as it preserves a 50/50 ratio.

The Coupe will be sold at a base price of $57275, while the Sedan is a little cheaper at $54575. With such an impressive automobile at a decent price point, we suspect plenty of E92 M3s on the road and in future pages of et.

MK4 Transmission Mounts

Excessive drivetrain movement can result in muted throttle response and constrained shifting, among many other pitfalls.

The street mounts are 25% stiffer than stock and the track ones are 90% stiffer resulting in zero drivetrain movement.

Stay tuned to et in the future as we test a set on Project Silverstone.
