So should we start the poll now for the next repaint when youre sick of yellow?

The amount of money in this car is more than what my 1M cost me and the interior is still "coming soon" Good job PB!!!

Quality job there - very nice!

What happened to the rear spoiler? I thought I read you (Powerbeast) say that you couldn't with the new setup. So I thought CF-trunk maybe. But now it looks like you used the normal trunk. Why no spoiler?

+1 on getting rid of that wing but on the yellow. AW was much better...

either way let's see more pics !!

Yes, and they cost even more than that, last time I checked tire rack site they were close to 9K as a set. On that web site you can also visualize the rims on your car with every color of that model available. If the car you wanna put them on is a 135i I am not sure you can put them on very easily since they are quite large, check the relevant details on tire rack.

I am considering "diamond black" BBS RGRs myself as a gunmetal type of color on a wheel looking similar to my car's 359Ms.

I am still divided on the yellow. Do like how yellow M3 looks, stock black wheels look better than the black FIs ( they kinda disappear ).

So far I am leaning toward the classic/aggressive AW looks you had before, but I am very conservative regarding colors, I am sure it looks way better in person.

I do like CF roof, very brave going with yellow.

They are not in stock, eta 17th of April. For 1M these wheels are offered as fronts 9.5 x 19 and rear 10.5 x19 sizes (stocks are 9 and 10 respectively) and they cost the same in tire rack. I don't see any other sizes available for FI wheels.

Now I keep on looking these pictures of Powerbeast, maybe he could leave the wheels as silver or a lighter ton than black. But this never ends does it?
