1999 Z3 Coupe | Hellrot Red | Black | With Z3 M Roadstars


This Z3 Coupe was posted on geilekarre.de by zzzm52. What caught my attention about this Coupe is the Z3 M Roadstars mounted on a non-M Coupe. I’ve seen several photos of this setup before, with the rear wheels poking beyond the rear fender by about an inch. However, in these photos they appear to fit quite well. I’m curious what was required to make them fit this way. I though the engine bay shots looked familiar, and sure enough, I posted this same Coupe before. Mods include (translation from Google):

      I know, bummer. I mentioned that in the previous post. Any idea how he got the Roadstars to fit correctly without poke?

  2. Might be extreme camber.. The drifting picture in your previous post really shows it. Also – 245’s on a 9″ rim is a touch narrow. That’s stock rear size for a non-m coupe on an 8.5″ style 32 rim

    As I understand it – the German TUV does NOT allow the tires to extend beyond the fender lip, so extreme measures and trickery are necessary. :-)

      I wasn’t aware of that TUV restriction. I wonder how often it is enforced? In any event, I wanna know how they are pulling the fitment off!
