White Coupe on 20" BBS CH

Hi Guys, here's some recent snaps of my '08 on 20" BBS CH Matte Black wheels. I've lowered it also using H&R springs from Vivid Racing. All in all, it's a great package, ride is fantastic, scrubbing is virtually non existent although they rub on full lock slightly inside the guard. Small price to pay for the look I think.

Looks nice mate, I was very close to getting the same wheels but decided on 19" HRE P40's instead (also in black). I love the black and white look - just ordered some CF mirror covers and splitters.

looks good! I've got some H&R springs sitting in my boot, haven't installed them yet...btw, your front grills look a bit funny? they're not the M3 design are they?

Sorry, I really can't get in to black wheels. You might as well run steelies without hubcabs for the same effect. Just MHO

+1. I thought about ordering my ZCP's powdercoated but couldn't pull the trigger.

They're great wheels too! I just bought a black set for my White Audi R8, can't wait! When you can, post some pics of the CF mods as I'd be keen to see what that looks like. Thanks

No, they're not genuine but they were a present and it looks better than the standard chrome one I think, so I can live with it. Get those springs on, you won't look back!

I know, there are 2 in my area that have exactly the same wheels ( but no springs or exhaust ), plus mine was first and that's all that matters, ha!

I had polished ones on before these but they just looked too old school I thought. Each to their own, if we all had the same taste it'd be pretty boring I guess.

Mark are they H&R Sports or Sports Plus?

I had sports on the 335i and the right was harsh as hell. I am guessing EDC helps a bit on the M too?

Was your 335i with run flats and the 19" wheels? I've driven one before with that combo and the ride was so harsh, especially since the sidewalls of the 19" tyres are so thin on non-M bmws...a Standard M3 with 19" wheels and OEM tyres is far more comfortable haha

From memory they are sports plus. Yep, EDC makes it even firmer
