Thanks for all the feedback guys!! I can honestly say that this trip to IND for me was the most rewarding thing I have done with the car yet. Researching the forums here, constantly finding new ideas, getting inspiration from you guys, and being able to have to opportunity to make my dreams a reality? This was by far the best experience for me and my M. I can't say enough about the guys at IND. They worked with me every step of the way and coordinated shipping parts from California, Germany, and Japan all to their shop outside Chicago. For anyone on the fence about doing a similar project feel free to ask me any questions, and as well if you have any questions about any of the mods, feel free to PM. I hope my car can serve as inspiration to some of you out there, just as you guys have done for me in the past.

Cheers

Sejzilla,

TE37 are 18", 9.5" fr and 10.5" rear. Offset is +22.

Tires are 275 fr and 315 rear. IND pulled the rear fenders to allow for the 315 with no rubbing at all, inquire with them if you're interested!

IND, it's apparent that everything you guys touch turns out beautiful. IMHO, your company designs/modifies cars with the perfect blend of class, aggressiveness, function and form. Very, very beautiful car!

love the car... dont get me wrong.. but kinda feel like the black wheel thing is played out these days. i think matching side mirrors and wheels would have worked nicely on this car. blue? red? green? orange?

Certainly a COTM contender. I am not a huge fan of the 1M bumper craze but it works well here. Wheels are a great choice. We have seen them a few times before but they look fantastic and offer great function and form. Well done gents!

Thanks! I definitely hear where you're coming from, but I wanted this build to be somewhat understated, or unseen by the blind eye (if that's even possible anymore). While the new HRE color finishes are definitely something to drool over , I wanted my build to let the eyes see the details all the way around the car, and not be fixated first on a color theme like wheels+mirrors. As always, I appreciate the input!

Thanks Jason! I'm glad you think so. The 1M bumper was a gamble for me.. I cannot explain how happy I am with the outcome though. I have to give credit to LTBMW for their amazing craftsmanship on the bumper. The Slek lip is something else too. I agree with you on the wheels. I've always come to this forum for guidance and ideas, and while I know a fair share of people have a similar setup, sometimes form and function take precedence over creativity for a reason.. Cheers!

There is a reason for that... The te37's are perfect offsets, perfect sizes, light weight, strong, look great, and fairly priced. There isn't currently a quality wheel out there with all of the above qualities.

Why don't you share your creative set-up? I think we'd all be interested to see what you are doing with your car....
Thanks guys. You successfully laid out all of the reasons why I bought my TE37s.

ps- Philip, next time you go to IND we've got to go together so they can shoot our girls side by side
