Thanks you guys...

No, the wheels were aftermarket 19" M5 replicas I put on right after I got it, however ironically, they're about 1-2 pounds lighter than the stock 18" type-189's that came on it. I think because they're the italian replicas (vs the taiwanise (sp?) ones that aren't 100% accurate) that they look as good as they do. Still contemplating a small drop... we'll see.

As for the color combo... I saw a similar combo on an e46 M3 at the dealer in about 2003 or so... fell in love with it and decided to custom order this one emulating that specific e46. The only difference is the grey poplar wood trim inside... it's almost black and I think looks really good.

As for the window trim... the aluminum is killing me... I have to black it out somehow as I think although it is very nice, it really detracts from the lines and somehow overwhelms the car making it look top heavy.

Still waiting on the forthcoming Dinan suspension components... but everything else is coming together nicely in the meantime...

Thanks again for the kind words...
