The 18s are awesome! Better then the 19s on the e92 that was sitting next to the e90. This e90 stole the show.

OK, what show? Where? That is what I posted before.

Definately a different finish than the M3 at the benefit drive in FL.

In that last picture, they look bitch'n!

Thanks for posting the photos.

Did you notice the notorious orange peel on the car? The paint, esp. in the shot below looks quality. Maybe they colorsanded it just for the show...

Toronto auto show. I spent a lot of time working the light and angles. These cars are hard to photograph...especially with people walking in and out of the frame. The car was lit with studio lighting. The increased sidewall profile on the 18s over the 19s adds to the overall aggressive look of the car that for some reason never completely comes through in the pictures. The e92 looks too long but the dimensions on the e90 are perfect, even sitting next to an M5.

Wow, the 18s look great in those pics. I will definitely need to see these in person before I order.

Edit - The center part of this 18" wheel is smaller than the original 18" wheels shown, and the spokes flare out more towards the edge of the rim!

Early 18" wheel:


Later 18" wheel:

I have SparkGraph and 19s spec'd in the system (until they open up orders for sedan M-dct, it's at 047). But the 18's and the SSII look very good on the sedan, i'll have to build it again tonight and decide.

Thanks bro. I keep getting red x's for the BYO pics!!! lol. damn website.

I actually like the 19's a bit better, but think I will stick with 18's as I aint WILD about the 19's, and I can always replace the 18's with some BBS RGR's or something. Thanks again man!
