So speak now if you have any words of wisdom for me (especially Houston people who have seen the solar wheels) or forever hold your peace. Ive got my fingers crossed that the tires wont rub
I cannot speak on the rubbing issue. This is just not my area of expertise. However, I do agree with the choice of matte black V710s. I would say solar if you had a black e92, but I think the matte looks better on AW. And the drop from the springs is a must. Case in point below. 335 dropped vs M3 stock.

most of the time, cops radar automatically shut off when he's already fucked someone. he'll lock the offender's speed on his display then turn off the radar. nothing to worry about, it's normal.

Ya the springs are sitting in the garage as we speak. PYSpeed told me that the textured black is the solar black with texture but I think that the texture takes away some shine.

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...highlight=v713

This is the best example of textured black Ive found.

Now my biggest problem is getting a hold of Nawaaz's installer Jerry. We spoke a few weeks ago through PM and he said hed do the install but I have PMed him a couple times and I havent heard back. I dont have a number or the name of the shop.

The solar black V710s on Frank's car look sweet. IMO, it's a very subtle difference from matte black, but a nice one. At times, matte black wheels just seem dirty (not clean). The solar black look almost exactly like matte black, but have just enough reflectivity or shine to keep them from looking like dirty black wheels. I really don't think you can go wrong either way though -- both will look great.

Neither fronts or rears will rub with the setup you suggested.

Kyle, it sounds like the radar detector wasn't actually on until you were 50 yards away. If it had been, the RD definitely would have caught it. Was the officer in the car when you passed him? If so, you have nothing to worry about.

I really like that textured black. That's the winner in my book.

It certainly seemed as though it was on because it notified me of the speed trap I marked when I left downtown. He was in the car, but why does this not matter? I know Blake said it usually shuts off after they have caught someone, but why would it detect anything at all if their radar was off? Sorry for my ignorance, it would just be nice to know so I can keep my monthly tickets to a minimum as I had planned when I bought the damn thing.
