Gworks is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
Hi all. Im from Manchester in the UK and currently own an Audi TT Roadster 225. I love my car to bits, but have recently been looking to move on to an E46 M3 convertible. I want the Carbon black in Manual and with the 19's on (even though I'll end up selling them and throwing 20's on it). Either way, just thought I'd say a quick hello and hope y'all are a friendly bunch with advise for me in buying and modifying my M3 (If I decide to get one).
Cheers, Glen.

I'm pretty sure 20's will fit. If I got a set of 19's on a Renault Megane, I'm sure 20's will fit on an M3....anything is possible when u put ur mind to it.
Cheers for the welcome fella's. Hopefully see you around a lot more if I join the BMW grp once again.
Glen.

They will fit fine... with very low profile tyres.... and no suspension work... once you get suspension work... either 18s.. or 17s will have to do...

Welcome,

Les

Good call on the M3. Although I do like your current vehicle. 20's will fit just make sure you don't go too wide.
