Uuuhhhh, Drez, I'm not sure if you were aware of this, but any member that joined the 'Fest in April 2008 & just so happens to work for a sick wheel company is obligated to hook his fellow brethren up w/ a sweet discount! ...you did read the fine print, right?!?

haha,

I wish i got a commission.

If anyone is interested in purchasing them, i will see what i can do. im pretty sure A bimmerfest price is do-able, It never hurts to ask. Just PM Me.

The company is a new startup but the people who started it have been in the wheel business for many years.We started up in January of this year and we are still setting up dealers. We currently advertise in Du Pont, with other magazines lined up in the coming months. We manufacture our wheels in the USA, using the highest quality parts. (Uh oh, im starting to sound like an advertisement) We offer a 2 piece wheel as standard (1 pc barrel) but can also make them in 3 pc. (2 piece barrel). Some fitments (mostly lambo/ferrari) must use the 2 pc barrels. We prefer the 1 pc barrel because they are stronger, and don't leak. We can brush, chrome, powder coat, and paint match to factory colors. You can even throw together custom combinations on our site to see how i looks. Lastly our center caps are billet aluminum, not plastic and can be painted to match any center.


On my car i used H&R Springs. it may look like it sits lower than most because my shocks are blown.. I think im going to go with KW Coilovers. so if anyone has any opinions on the ride quality of this setup, please let me know. The only other mod is that i the rear fenders are rolled because the shocks are blown. I didnt want to risk cutting the tire.

Oh, on the same day we shot my car, we shot a M6 and A New M3... The pics should be up soon so check back!

ImolaMMM, i think your right.. i dig simplicity. (even though i do have a car with a computer that controls everything haha) I don't want to get to crazy with it. It stays shadowline for now!

Hey everyone, I'm new on here also. I just picked up a titanium grey 2002 745i with 86k. This is my first bimmer, I upgraded from an audi a4 that was turbo swapped/lowered/ect.... I thought it was time for a little more luxury And wow was this car a step up No mods yet, just waiting for the men in brown to bring my 22" MRR wheels and H&R springs. I'll post some pics of her when I get the wheels on this week. So hello to everyone!

The exhaust flows out of the secondary muffler only when you get on it. So when just crusing around its very quiet. Both tips are hooked in..
