Should be quite something once finished.. :D

With all that power (once fitted) maybe wider rear tyres are what you need.. I see a lot of wheel spin with OEM 245's as I am already struggling for traction (albeit no LSD) on JB4 map2 with no supporting mods..

Still on the fence regarding exhaust change for getting more sound into the cabin.. Just don't want to annoy the neighbours during cold start :lol:

I do hope so, interested to know what size tyres you can fit on the rear without arch mods? The wheels are 9" wide so going bigger is an option, I'm designing the exhaust with them so wont be going completely asbo lol

I used to have 265/35/18 rear on 9" ET50 on my previous M135 lowered on KW v1 without issues...

I think 255/35/18 rears should be OK on your 9" rear BBS's... 265 might be touch and go without catching the arches

Nice one, would the 245/35s be ok upfront with the ET40 offset of the bbs wheels?

May struggle with LCAs as Marco had to roll his arches with same front wheels as yours and LCAs but he hasn't got the TSs as far as I know..
May get away with it with the TSs as it reduces the caster a little but will be close..
