Talking 1 Mean E92 M3

Hello Board,
I would like to share some photos of my friend's m3. He had the wheels powder coated and time attacked. He also has the Vorsteiner lip and H&R springs installed.

BEFORE





AFTER

That actually makes the OEM 18" wheel look so much better. For some reason I just don't like the gunmetal color but the black powder coat makes it look pretty good.

Butt its not the OEM 18" wheels...
in the "BEFORE" pics, it is the 18s

But in the "AFTER" pics, it is the 19s.

Come on guys, look more carefully!
those are two different wheels, 18s/19s

Well that explains why I like it better. I always liked the design of the OEM 19s over the 18s. If the OEM 18s were the same design as the 19s but just 1" smaller, I probably would have ordered the 18s for a little more meat on the tires. If they did that they probably wouldn't be able to charge $1200 for the upgrade to 19s though.

Exactly, they wouldn't!

The powdercoat doesn't seem to match the body color well. i don't think that this is a good mod on a black M3. much better for white perhaps. also, i don't like the red time attack on a bmw, it seems too ricey to me...imo.
