great looking Car!! a drop and smoking out your white part of the taillights with your current mods would really make your car stand out! i also blacked out my emblems in the rear and it looks really nice. welcome aboard.

Nice ride.
Hello All, thinking about getting my rims chromed, good or bad idea? Why or why not? Any of thoughts are appreciated.

I'm not a fan of your current rims with the ACS kit that you have. If it were up to me I'd put different rims on the car all together. Some 22"s with grey centers and chrome lips. Or I'd do a 22" 5 or 6 spoke concave wheel.

I think you should get bigger wheels; also, I think chrome wheels that are not factory are inferior because they tend to have some pitting after a couple years.

I am new to the board and to the 7ser but not new to modding. I have only had the car for two months, so i still have a lot to learn. The board has been a very valuable resource in learning more about this awesome piece of machinery. I have to admit, i am thoroughly impressed by it.
