Car lowered and fitted new wheels

Well...this was first time I purchased rims sight unseen and I am pleased with the result. Amazingly the factory BMW center cap fits these rims...may opt to use them in the future. Going with wider tires in the rear as soon as these go bald.

Very nice wheels! I'd go without the clown-nose center caps though and put plain ones or the BMW ones...

Looks good. What are the offsets? You went 265 on a 10" for stretch right? Be extra careful about curbing, you have no tire lip to save you at all.

EDIT: Oops, missed your statement: "Going with wider tires in the rear as soon as these go bald."

Looks great. I would definitly go with wider tires in the rear -its too stretched back there. I would go with the BMW center caps as well. Nice looking wheels - enjoy!

Good job on the stance. It's basically flush at the fenders without poking. And lowered without being slammed. Nice concavity on the rears, too.

A guy on the Audi forums had Linea Corse Strasse on his C6 A6. Those were pretty sweet too

Great looking wheels.

I with everyone else with the center caps. I rather see the BMW caps.

If you swap them to the BMW caps I would love to see a pictures.

Let it be noted that on this day and in this thread Bimmerfest and E90Po*t became indistinguishable from each other. BJ's prediction has been proven true. OP, just out of curiousity, did you use your Bar Mitzvah money to buy this car? Just asking. It's a long story.

Does the alignment of the forums mean a new ///Messiah he been broughten to us? A new M1, nope, M3/3, dammit "1 series M coupe" to satisfy purists and posers alike?
