    Oil coolers what's people's opinion

    it's a 19 row you have Steve :) sized it big so that it would provide plenty cooling on track which as you have found it does perfectly! partially blocking it for the road is a great idea to make sure the engine is still getting up to temp

    Track wheels...

    7" wide with a 195/50 tyre is spot on, you can feel there is WAY less tyre deflection than even running them on a 6.5" wheel I used to run 15x7 ET35 wheels with 10mm front spacers on my EK9, car was very low and never had any issues, handling was superb

    Spoon 1.5 way oil?

    adding friction modifier allows the plates to slip slightly so as much as it will reduce noise and make the diff operate a tad smoother, it will also make the diff less efficient used to use Motul 75w90 LS oil with spoon diff in both B series and K series forms, worked great Spoon exclusively...

    Safetydevices cages, where from?

    at least the welding on the EK9 cage isn't too bad - was a bit of a pig for the M3, took ages!!!

    Carbon Black E46 m3

    if you are wanting V3's it is worth paying the wee bit extra for the clubsports - V3's don't come with top mounts and also use a progressive front spring whereas the clubsports have top mounts and linear springs looks very clean for an early one!!!

    Safetydevices cages, where from?

    nice one, Tim (DV8 on here) went the same route with fitting the half cage with optional bars included too - he's yet to fit the front section though as long as the reinforcement plates are welded inside the car and not placed on the underside, it carries MSA homologation

    Safetydevices cages, where from?

    Most bolt in cages are 6 point as they mount at..... 2 points for the front legs 2 points for the B pillar loop 2 points for the rear legs the safety device cages are a brilliant piece of kit, comes with all the reinforcement plates which you need to weld in etc the 'standard' 6 point cage...
