New BBS RS-GT on my E92 M3- Thank you RennSpec

Once again, thanks so much to RennSpec. Thanks so much for you guys great deal and customer service Got a set of the 19" BBS RS-GT with Continental Extremely Contact DWS tires on. Im also running with the Macht Schnell 5mm spacers in the back. Besides, I also got the Red BBS Cntr Caps ordered from RennSpec, which it has not yet been arrive. Since the Cntr Caps are order directly from Japan, so it would take a bit longer than usual. Im still not sure wether I want the Red BBS Cntr Caps on or not, so I would like to get some opinion on that please. Im also thinking to get a set of the BBS Red Lugs on Studs as well, but still not sure about it. I also got a great deal from RennSpec on the OEM BMW TPMS.

So far I have not seen anyone with the BBS RS-GT on their E92 M3, which is the reason why I went with this route. Hope you guys like it, thank you so much everyone.

Current look:











Here is the original look of my car:

Get the red caps, with the red lugs, and take the tint off the taillights but keep the turn signal smoked.
It'll have great red accents.

Sick ride. I like it old and new!

Are your whole headlights tinted? Or did you open them up and do some custom stuff.

i know everyone says take off the tint on the rearlights, but i think if you lessened the amount of tint your whole car would look much sleeker, I had tints on my lights as well and ended up taking them off. As for the RS-GT's, they look amazing and much better than your past rims!

Thanks so much for the advices and kind words~ I really do like the front tint, but not the rear. The rear looks too dark to me. Since I got the tint for FREE and I promise to kept it up for advertise purpose, so....
