I think it looks perfect, the 20"s are too big if you ask me. The 19"s look purposeful, rather than just for show.

love your setup. i was debating on 19's or 20's as well, but 19's are actually not that small looking as i thought it would be. yes please take a close pix of the calipers.

I like the looks of 20's I have them on my other car, the 25 series and rubber band tires kills me everytime I hit a pot hole or a metal plate on the road.

The lips looks perfect sizing. Please post pic of the calipers when you get a chance. I'm looking to do the same thing, just deciding on color.

Very nice indeed. I'm not into the painted calipers but to each their own. Your cars has a very nice look to it.

This looks sweet!!! I debated for a long time between the 19's or 20's n some BBS. Decided on the 19's for the ride quality. I think they will still look good. JMO

You know what, I am surprised that they look as good as they do. The last time I saw BBS LMs 19s on a E92 M3, they looked tiny. I guess your offset setup made all the difference in the world. IMO, they look perfect and you know what, I am now considering 19s instead of 20s for mine. 20s are gonna require rubberband tires and it just doesnt sound practical for NY roads. Thanks for posting the pics, please put up as many more as you have! thanks

They make plenty of suspensions that go that low. KWv2 or V3 will go that lower, if not lower. Coilovers my friend.... they are god.

I have.... but I dont drive in NYC a lot. I live in Yonkers which is like 15 minutes north of the city, and the roads are a little better. Either way though, I have and its not fun in the city.
