Got archenemy.co.uk coming around next week to roll the rear arches, was going to do it my self but could bugger it up, so get an expert to do it as recommend by Jack Tyler that drives the Dakar yellow E46 M3 and Cliff

Then get rubber for the front wheels, not quite sure on the tyre size tho 225 35 19 or 235 35 19

As fitting the new rims, had to get the rear arches rolled to miss the rear tyres touching, so got in contact with Phil from archenemy.co.uk, did a smashing job, showed me what the job will consists of from start to finish, spent around 2 hours cutting the inner wheel plastic trim, stud that holds the bumper would be to long, then moved all sealer from the arch and started to roll.

Dont think Ill be do that my self thought it was only to roll the arches, so would recommend to other people that wants to do the same thing as me

Yup, I like to try things and learn but like you, that's not something I'd attempt...........unless I had one being collected for scrap fairly soon afterwards!

Phil's a top man; he's done a couple of my cars in the past.
