I always enjoy the IND photos b/c the photo locations are often familiar places. You shoot in Long Grove a lot and I remember seeing that Castle looking thing in Barrington by the Inverness Club.

Anyway haha, Lou's is my favorite out of the 'big guys'. I actually have a Lou's pizza in my freezer right now, because you just can't get food like out in CA!

I was referring to the metal race mesh on the Erriccson bumper, not the kidney grills. Not a huge fan of the metal mesh that's all. Can't wait to see more photos

Pequod's is out in that Niles/Morton Grove/Skokie area, but I'm not sure exactly what town it's in.

You've got to remind me about this conversation if you order something at any point, I'll ship some Pequod's or Lou Malnati's along with your stuff.

Sorry about that, I actually meant mesh grilles, not kidney grilles. The mesh inside the bumper is all matte black. Photos are coming soon!

Here is some snap shot I took after wheel+bumper installation today.

Fronts are done. Few more goodies on the way for next week.









Aggressive fitment!!! FLUSH!!




For tire size, we went with 255/30/20 and 285/30/20.
This wheel/tire set up is very aggressive.

We choose Yokohama Advan Sports for our tires.
I also had MB CLS, and I was be able to switch between PS2 and Yoko.
I really liked Advan because it offer very silky/smooth road feel and ride quality.
The ride quality between PS2 and Advans were significant while traction/grip level is at similar range.

Even with 20s, the car feels very comfortable as I expected.

Perfect offset, F L U S H...looks great all around guys.

The BBS CH along with the new BBS CH-R were my favorite wheels, but now these BBS RE in this particular fitment top them both.

I know two great shops in IL, with all the right goodies for my future M!!

Are those side pieces on the front bumper painted black or real carbon fiber?
