Sorry... had to do custom offset BBS LM's from Japan!!...

FLOSS = Refurbished + Inserts and Re-drills + Fully Polished Lips and Barrels + Hyper Black Painted Centers!!!.... damn

1. Yes they match the space gray VERY close... didn't try to do that, it just turned out that way...
2. Yes I have 3* of camber up front... that is why I can fit a wheel up front that people normally run in the BACK...
3. Yes they are flush... and they will eventually poke... hate it or love it...
4. Yes they change colors depending on the light!!... holler @ FLOSS

The front weighs 22 lbs...

An observation: We can easily fit an 11 or 11.5 inch wide wheel in the back with the right offset... there is a ton of room between the inner lip and the shock.

You know its setups like this specially with those pictures that really make me realize how shallow our front bumper/fender areas are. I mean from the drivers side front view you can see how much the front fender swerves in towards the front, i mean hell even with the stock wheel/tire setup you can see atleast 1/3 of the front tire tread from the front end. I can honestly say that is one of the things I actually hate about this car is how the bumper/fender comes in to the center so damn much rather then staying straight all the way down to the bottom of the fender/bumper, front AND back really but more noticeable on the front. Makes me really want that ER widebody kit, too bad its such a damn expensive cosmetic mod. Even so, the rear fender/bumper shouldnt curve in so damn much too

I agree, but also remember that my negative camber exaggerates what you are seeing. But, yeah, agreed. I especially don't like how dirt and debris gets kicked up on the side of the car behind the front and rear tires, because of how the body curves.

I'm not sure how I feel about the lugs yet either, but I'm going to rock them for a little while and see what kind of reaction they get.

I like the lugs, adds a bit of flare... too many of us BMW owners follow the trends way too much - I say keep 'em.

Joe, I'll be in StL for labor day weekend... I'm hoping you'll be free on Sunday or Monday cuz I NEED to see these rims!
