Awesome. On a side note, are the bbs f1 standard on the Ferrari 599 gto? Take a look at those wheels they look identical. http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Ferra...ht_40941wt_958

^+1. ///M rotors (that look like they're about to vaporize) with 6 piston Brembos?
Awesome wheel too.

Those rotors look bad.... Is that normal? Personally, 19s in these wheels look the best.

The GTS brakes are the same as the Brembo GT. Only the rotors are different. BMW makes their own rotors. If you see the Brembo GT and the GTS rotors next to each other, you will know why. Those on the GTS are much better made.

These are Brembo GT calipers and are not painted GTS.

That's how rotors look like when you don't use your BBK for show & shine purpose. 18'' are better for the track though and you have more tires to choose from. Apart from that, these are custom made with ET and width given by the owner.

Some people setup their cars for show and bragging rights and there are others who are more "go" than "show." I have bbk's for one reason - braking consistency on the track. These 18 in BBS FI are going to rock... They should be the lightest 18in forged rims out there. They should be 1-2lbs less per corner compared to 19's plus rotational mass is closer to the center. I can't wait to beat on them at the track They should show up next week.

When the 19" FI first came out, the first thought that came to mind was, why did they not produce an even lighter 18".

If only I had the coin to afford these things!

Keep us posted on when you get them mounted!

nothing wrong with wanting to go for show, I did get it for that reason. I have 18" TE37s for track. I also have 20" dub LM-Rs for show too. but keep making fun of me, Im rather enjoying it.

I'm gonna be honest, I haven't tracked my wheels yet. So they are mostly for show at the moment.
