The car looks great!

...but the more I look at that 2nd pic, the more I think the wheels are too big. Makes the perf brakes look small, think 18s are perfect for the 1er.

What suspension and tires are you running? These are the wheels I have my heart set on, but in a different color. Your car looks incredible dude.

Thanks!

H&R Sport and Koni Yellows set on medium. The wheels are not really recommended for people who do not like the idea of fender rolling or negative camber. I had to roll all four fenders to fit 235 and 255.

Everything is perfect so far! I would just do a light tint and it would really set it off.

technically it depends on drop and tire size. I forced a 235 to fit. I would think that a 225 and a 245 should not rub at all on stock. Sorry, I changed the springs and wheel setup at the same time. I still rub on big dips going pass 40mph though, which is like never...

Hmm, interesting. I'm not giving up hope on them yet though, I think they look awesome. They are a nice break from the typical CSL look.


Also, very nice sig!
