Confused

With the black dash and carbon fiber trim and other black accents, it kind of works. Looks cool like it is. Get a black back seat, too.

Yeah it doesn't look horrible in person but I'm getting tired of the tan

I've already picked up every black part minus the door panels, headliner and rear carpet. I'm going to invest in a complete leatherique dyeing kit soon... Hmmm, yes. This is all I have to say

02.bmw.m3.fint.430

2 weeks my friends, I've seen it done before and it turned out amazing so I'm going to try it. I'm good with my hands so we shall see

Recently got the CSL reps in gunmetal with some Sumi HTRZIII's. The ride is significantly less harsh and more comfortable, the tires seem to grip fine and are quiet, only have about 1,000 miles on them so far.

I have found that performance has decreased a bit compared to the 18 lb O.Z. Ultraleggera's and assumedly lighter and also worn out PS2's that I had on the car before - since the CSL reps are 24 lbs each.

I'll be keeping the O.Z.'s for track wheels.

Great set of cars!! The wifey's is beautimous! And I guess yours is ok too.

BTW your neighbors don't think you're unemployed, they think you're the local drug dealer! lol.

You are too kind.


The wheels are 19x8.5 front and 19x9.5 rear with 225/35/19 front tires and 235/35/19 rears.

The wheels also have 13mm spacers on the rear and 10mm spacers on the front.
