still looking for a staggered set of M5 style 65's in 18", but for now she's fine. Just turned over 100k on the way to SoCal loafed along @ 100 mph most of CA on the way home, just a dream to drive

[IMG][/IMG]Finally a break from the salt and slush. My poor flaking rims look miserable. I am considering having them refinished and color matched to the car. She is still sexy in my eyes!
