Well done and post up a moving shot if possible.
Yes, definitely better with BMW roundel caps than VMR center caps

I need a better camera and a cameraman!!!

Hoping to get some more shots on a sunny day...

As does everyone that buys crappy/ heavy VMR or any other cast wheels. If they aren't Motorsport forged or 3 piece wheels then your sacrificing performance for looks. 99% of people on these boards fit in this category.

Actually I think the wheels look good, but 235 is too skinny a tire for 300hp. I do agree that light wheels make a world of difference.

I'm looking for a similar stance like this. Did you have to roll your fenders to fit the M Sport wheels on the KWs? Did you also use the 5mm wheel spacer for the M Sport wheels?

Looks good. Just dont get a tune or anything with those bicycle tires

How do you like the ride with the KW V1's?

Thanks for comment guys!!

Yes I know tires are stretched and car is sitting pretty low but hey...
I like it that way

I guess it's a matter of personal preference so...

Anyways pretty soon changing rims so will get some shots up soon!

No I have not rolled the fenders. The tires are actually pretty fat in my winter setup. They are Michelin Sottozeros in the sizes same as OEM tire sizes, but they run much wider. Fronts have 5mm spacers.

I can only compare to stock suspension but I would say much better. It "sticks" to the road more. The ride is not harsh at all, I would say is a very comfortable one.
