I saw your beautiful machine at Auto Talent when you got coilovers & the wheels installed. It looks even better now.

Heard you have more amazing parts on the way!!

This looks awesome, dare I ask for more side shots, showing both the front and rear tires.

And even, .... the Brembo's with the original rims (for those of us with only a partial budget).

Besides a significant looks upgrade, is this also a deliberate performance upgrade? If so, what were your trade-offs / alternatives?

Nice. I still think the rear tires are sticking out 8 or 10mm too much. Maybe it's just me but i like the front and rear tires to look the same

It's a very aggressive fitment, it looks very good in person.

Looks GREAT! My 128i vert is also AW. I painted the stock calipers red (using a duplicolor kit). It doesn't look nearly as nice as your brembos but I love the look. I also have matte black kidneys. I need the tint.

Looks amazing, does the Idrive still monitor the brakes as it would on OEM?
