Trust me. In CenCal, when its hot, IT IS HOT. When its cold, it is FREEZING COLD. Rarely any good pacific weather like the LA people get where its nice and breezy.

The wheels look smaller than the oem alpina wheels. Now it definitely needs a drop. I like the wheels but still liked the oem better

The wheels are 22", thinking about lowering but don't want to lose the ride.

Can you also post a picture of it sitting on the powdercoated 21s you had before you put these 22s on? Like some pics from the side and quarter panels? It would make it easier to decide.

Please don't put Forgiatos on the Alpina...or anything for the matter. I'd personally leave the Alpina rims on it, since they are rare and unique to your car. If you wanted to go aftermarket pick a classy wheel like an HRE. As far as lowering your car thats up to you and i'd probaby do it. B7's aren't meant for track duty, just highway blasts.

Well said! I liked the alpina oem wheels but if I was gonna go aftermarket. HRE would be one of the companies I would be looking into. The fenders and side skirts are a bit of an overkill! An alpina really doesn't need anything except tints and in my case a drop! :-)

Just noticed the side skirts and fenders. You should have saved your money.
Simplicity is always more elegant than over done. Sorry for the honesty.

Paint the rear light strip black (now painted white) roof spoiler, tint the LED strips, LED interior (makes a HUGE difference, trust me ) and a drop. sports springs don't drastically alter the ride comfort. Oh, and I love the black Alpina wheels Whts on the fenders?

The fenders make it looks too busy, along with the wheels. Lose these 2 things the car will look alot better. Sometimes more is not better. Agree on HRE, or even iForged will be good choice, VIP modular is cool as well, I had a set before, and the design and quality is on par with HRE.

LED DRLs look great!

Like a few others on this thread...where did you get those LED DRLs from? They do work really well to finish off the front...
