Exclamation Something Different...Let me know what you think

Decided to go with something people don't have.

18in VMR VB3 Powder Coated Rally Orange! Other things on the car.

-Matte Black Grills
-UR Downpipes
-Berk Technology Street Exhaust
-3D Design Carbon Fiber Diffuser
-BMS Dual Cone Intake

and soon a Slek CSL Carbon Fiber Trunk
(also will be getting a drop)

Sorry for the bad quality pictures, I took it really quick with my iPhone. VMR took a photo shoot and I will have the pictures soon.

Let me know what you guys think about it.
Thanks!

I think it looks great, and would look awesome with a drop.

You're such an attention whore though!

The car does not look aggressive enough to pull off those wheels

As everyone mentioned.. rims are nice but to pull off the "extensive color or design rims" your car needs to be dropped (imo slammed) or it won't match, though you probably have something planned down the road.

People seem to be really obsessed with wanting to be unique or different just for the sake of being unique/different.

There is a point where it doesn't make sense, and orange wheels is one of those things.

Next thing you know, some fool is going to run four different kinds of wheels just because no one else has done it before.

Same with this plasticrapping fad that's going around. Horrible.

That wasn't 100% targeted towards you so please don't take it that way. It's probably more of a rant on what I'm seeing the 3-series guys do to their cars. Some of it is just plain awful.

By the way, the manner in which the picture was taken actually made me think for a sec that it was a miniature version of your 1-series.

Someone photoshop the car to be space grey, please!? haha. I have wanted orange wheels on a car since I was a teenager, 15-18 years ago ("before it was cool"-stupid hipsters, I hate hipsters). haha. Orange is my favorit color but I thought an orange car would be too much. Looks good, more low would help.

not so sure it would look right. Red will look fine, but I still dont understand oddly colored wheels on a street set of wheels.

That being said go nuts on your track set!

saw your car at the Krispy Kreme meet last night! I like the orange. You should throw some orange accents like one orange stripe on one of the kidneys or get a lip and put an orange stripe on the edge.

looks good - when it's clean
black car, orange wheels - you either have to own a car wash or love soap and water
