3D Design pieces or Advan RZ + tires

I am torn on what to choose. Which option would you go for? Prices are similar


3D Design Lip + spoiler + diffuser





or Advan RZ + tires

If you got the money 3D Design is top notch

need more votes! I'm leaning toward the 3D Design pieces now and wait till the run-flats wear down and then replace them with 18" Advan RZ's + tires.

Comming from an STI i would deff recommend th Advans those wheels just cant look bad on any car lol.

the exterior pieces also look yummy but i would do wheels and tires THEN do the exterior.

Just my opinion, let us know what you get.

Seriously?
If you actually have all that money to blow, go with the wheels for sure. 3D's stuff is just too damn expensive. If you want cosmetic mods after, go with some ICarbon pieces, much less expensive and look better.

I vote wheels, mainly because I want to see a local 1er with Advans! I've only seen a local E90 M3 with them and they look amazing.

I'm not a fan of lips and exposed carbon though.

Well you may get your wish. I pick up my car today after work. After I install my painted grills, LUX LED angel eyes, rear fog switch, clutch stop, and tint. I will be talking to the guys over at Revision Audio to see how long it'll take them to get a set of Advan RZ's in.
