Rear wheels are 19x 9.5 with 255 MPSS. Rear diffuser was off eBay (yes) -it was a hartge copy. I had another thread on it - fitment was great! and gloss finish was too.

Looks great man. Just a quick question..here did you buy the three color stickers that are on your front kidney grill
Haha. Actually I did not know that Bimmian sold these! I found some tape at work (which I use on instruments as they are heat and water resistant) and are 3mm wide and realised I had the ///M colours in there. So decided to use it on the grill.

Did you rub on that setup? I might be interested using the exact setup with yours. Do you mind to post the link here? Thanks man!

Hi did you mean the link for the exhaust setup? Sorry the post was unclear. If so, HERE is the link .

Actually this was powdercoated overseas before shipping to me - VMR did the powdercoating - was a great job! The true colour of the wheel in reality is actually a VERY dark grey, which appears black to most people unless you look closely. It has a blue/purple metallic flake. And a gloss finish. It is a little different IMO and I enjoy that.

Thanks for the positive comments on the photos too. I am still playing around with the camera. Hope to take some shots of another car this weekend, which I have just completed detailing (clay bar, cut, polish, wax).

No, I mean the wheels and tires setup. What offset do you use? Did you rub using that setup?

Tell me more about these Camber Plates...

I'm running the Eibach Pro Kit too and just recently fitted a set of Yoko 225/255 staggered tyres. They have much squarer shoulders than the OEM rubber and now I rub on big bounces...

Camber plates might be a perfect solution!

PS: Car look AMAZING!

That looks hot! I'm thinking about going with this set as well, but in 18s

By the way, how did you get rid of the amber from your headlights? Did you get a whole new housing? I'm worried about doing that because I have the adaptive ones and can't seem to find a viable solution. Thanks!

And once more just because your car deserves it--it looks awesome!
