Thanks everyone. 18x8 front 18x9 rear.

I had a couple more things in the works but they were postponed for a little so I decided to just show how she sits now.

Man, that will never stop coming up.

Well I regret to inform that it will not happen with this car.

I go on deployment this coming January and upon return I'll be getting a new car, so investing a ton of money and time (time which I have none of) it's just not worth it.

Looks great, but I've never quite understood the color stripes on the bottom of the front lip. They're the ///M colors, but reversed. Why backwards?

Because $$$$$$$$$$$$$$...

Plus at that point she will have been sitting/getting taken care of by someone else, and with extra/tax free money stacking up overseas it will be nice/easier to move into a newer car. I don't plan on shying from BMW though, just to clarify that.

Basically it came with the sticker that you can order from here. I had the whole thing on the back windshield, and I eventually realized it was too much clutter. So I removed the "Bimmerfest" wording and just moved the stripe to the lip because I thought it was a nice accent. I've been toying with removing it simply because it's ///M colors, but I kinda like it.

Whoa!!! Beautiful!

I like the lip with the ///M sticker looks different but a little confusing...

Yeah, it just had me confused, since the ///M colors are /// not ///.

Thanks for that colorful description. In all actuality I didn't realize until the next day and at that point I didn't want to pull it off again to reposition. Idk to me it was basically the smaller block of color being more aft and the larger being more forward that made me feel like it sat better that way. It's dumb, but I like it.

In a perfect world. Depending on how much I actually make and where I'm at with everything else when I get home, I will most certainly keep and swap and hopefully more. It's all sort of tentative as of now. I don't even know how long my deployment is going to be at this point.

If I showed you some close ups of my paint, you would realize that she's really not that clean.

I'm buffing in the near future though.

Take your wheels off Ken and take them to a machine shop to have the hubs milled down. Wallah better fitting wheels.

Yeah I didn't want to modify my fenders, but I did.

Right now with the spacer I'm sitting at et25 in the back.

This is a good idea. I've got something like et43 and I could probably fit 255 in the back. The wheel is super close to the coilovers in the front, but no problem there.
