E90 Space Gray w/ Apex ARC-8 - Hyper Black

Finally got my Apex wheels mounted the other day and I'm so glad to have them on my car. The OEM 19" ZCP wheels did look great, but these offer so many more benefits. The ride quality is great, especially with the Michelin PSS tires. The tires are sized 275/35/18 all around, mounted on 18x10 et25 Hyper Black Apex ARC-8 wheels. I'm running a 15mm spacer in the rear to push it out a little bit. At first I was hesitant about the hyper black since there were no photos of this finish on SG E90 M3, but I ordered them anyhow. Took a few days to adjust, but I'm in love. I will post a few photos here, but check out my journal for more pics. Let me know how you guys like it!

I LOVE IT!!!!!

I will never get tired of seeing E90 M3s on ARC8s....

The headlights take the aggressive look to whole a new level. It's subtle, yet makes a staggering difference.

Lets see some shots of this from your track day

Not a big fan of the LED headlights. I like the original cut-circle design on the outer ring. But I love the stance. Very aggressive looking.
