Modded on Stock 18's? Post em up

Post up your modded M3's that still ride on stock 18's. It seems that there isn't too much love for them so I think it would be great to see what you guys have done with them.

I will post pics of my car on the stock 18's once i put them back on. Give me a month or so. They are my winter setup. Pilot Alpins on the stock 18's powdercoated with a rough textured black powder. Looks and feels very cool.

Patience

the stock 18s suck
too small...too dark...too much going on.

My E93 M3 came with the 18s, and after using them for 1 winter. I sold them and grabbed a set of OEM 19s. Best decision I ever made

I couldnt imagine keeping them on year round either.

Glad to see folks are still putting constructive comments on here, like telling us that stock 18s suck. The OP obviously likes them and wants pictures, so why do people post stuff like that?

Anyhow, here's mine. Nothing too crazy....roof spoiler, painted reflectors, painted side gills, recent switch from matte black grills to BMW Performance gloss grills, black chrome exhaust tips. Also have the aFe SuperStock scoops and filter.

I happen to think that the 18s are beautiful wheels, which is why I chose them for my car. Let's see some more!!

Just like I said, not too much love for the 18's. This isnt a thread about what the best looking wheel is, its just a thread for people who have modded their cars and kept the 18's so keep the negative comments to yourselves.

Here's one that came by that just had some black-out and smoked items. Nothing crazy.

I love the stock BBS 18s.

Much prefer the 18's over the blingy 19's. OEM 19's need to powder coated either gunmetal or black, to look good.

Always thought this car looked good with oem 18's.

Simply beautiful!
Could you provide some more details on your car:
What suspension with how much drop?
What dimension of wheel spacers?
What tires and what tire dimensions?
Which type of rear diffusor?
Thanks!

I like the look of my 18's on Space Gray. Good match IMO. But some people like fish, other don't, matter of opinions. I am gonna go for 19's in black down the road though.

I'd choose performance over bling-bling any day.

This is how it looked last winter..... A couple months and the 18s will be back on again, not with the 3D lip anymore, but the Eibach drop is still on the car
