Looks great. Affirms my LMB choice. Those wheels are perfection. Unfortunately I couldn't afford them on my order as here in Canada it means we also have to pickup the Executive package, adding about $8K to the order.

I think eventually this will be common to many manufacturers as a similar "green" process has yet to be developed for mainstream cars w.r.t. the clearcoat adherence, AFAIK.

Also good call on not lowering. That ride height is spectacular. The 10mm drop cleans it all up while still being usable for every day. Thumbs up for being able to go over speed bumps.
