^ Veray Niice. There is a pre-facelift AW 5-speed 330i in my area I'd probably trade mine for If I had the chance. Great looking car.


...On second thought, facelift rocks.

I won't be replacing the 330i for some time. Maybe if I find a nice e30, I might jump on it...

Some more pics I took today. Sorry I didn't have time to clean up the wheels. And as you can see, my angel eyes are suffering from the cold start syndrome

Looks dope man I like it, You need the clear corners though and the front would look perfect.

The one on the M3 in this picture?



It's not a Kosei, it's an SSR GT-3 in Anthracite. 19" staggered.

They were, but a quick check of TireRack.com doesn't turn up any GT3's in 18 or 19 inch sizes for my car. SSR is only producing wheels in limited quantities and availability these days. There may be knock-offs available, or you could look for a used set. You could probably use 4x M3 fronts for a non-staggered setup, but the rear M3 wheel offset is too far off to work on a non-M car. We need 40-50 offset to run a wide tire, the M3 offset is low 20s.

The 6 spokes I have on my car, the Comp-H, are still available and they're 8 pounds lighter than the GT3. That alone is why I chose them for my car.
