Looks fantastic Sparoz. Really nice review too!

The size of the calipers/disks definitely does look measly with the new wheels. Also, is it just the camera angle or does the wheel well gap seem to be more noticeable with these wheels?

It is just the camera angle. In fact the gap looks less as the track is slightly wider.

Looks amazing! Please slam it.. low!!

With all these mods this 1M would feel sensational on the track. Definitely need to hit up a track day and appreciate all the work that has been put in.

Definitely needs a drop, but looking sweet!

One thing I do notice when they are on the car now, is the spokes look really thin!

Lots of people do mods like that without ever tracking their cars... Most M cars don't see the track, most Supercars never see the track either?

It does need a drop - but I am not going to touch the suspension until the brakes are in. Sounds like a Christmas present for the car!

All mods are track focus . You will see me on the track. The only reason I haven't turned up to the recent track days is because I need to sort work out due to some unforeseen circumstances. Realistically, I don't think I would have a chance till towards the end of the year - but probably in time to Christian the brakes. .

Actually, reviewing your pics again, IMO the new wheels aren't tough enough for the car's aggressive looks... Spokes are too fine and very non-BMW/Euro. Like a front rower in ballerinas.

The stock CSL wheels are great and why change what ain't broke?

They are fantastic wheels Sparoz, but just don't do it for me? If I changed, I'd go ADV.1's
