LMB E92 Comp Pack Detailed

Hola,

I got my E92 detailed over the weekend. Guy took some pics with the DSLR and I thought I would share. I'm thinking of getting my wheels PC black but I cannot decide. Opinions?













Edit:

Oops I forgot the full body shot..



Cheers

I think some darker wheels would look GREAT on this car, Black or even gunmetal/anthracite might look awesome

I was going to just buy a second set of ZCP GTS wheels but I'm not sure I like the Satin/Matte black vs a nice gloss black. I love the silver too but I get a lot of peer pressure to make these black or replace them with dark wheels.

I would def not pain the wheels! I love dark cars with light silver wheels. I wasn't a big fan of playing the spacer game (mainly from all the vibration issues I'd dealt with in the past) but I must admit they make the look of our cars. I ended up with 18 front and 12.5 rear.

Leave the wheels alone, black wheels will constantly look dirty and at a distance it has a tendency of looking like you're running a set of spares, esp. to the untrained eye.

I'd do spacers before anything else IMO. Hub centric spacers don't normally affect ride quality.

Black wheels look like hub caps, no definition. Leave them silver, IMO.

I used to be okay with spacers but I had constant vibration problems in my 08 E90 w/ H&R Spacers. I had them installed professionally by 2 shops, had a few road force balances, and even bought a new set of Supersports.

Maybe I will try some TMS spacers. I heard they were better. I wanted them in the first place but they were sold out and Turner 'upgraded' me to H&R for free.

It's the only thing stopping me from ordering 2 more rear wheels and doing a 275 square setup. Pretty sure that would require at least a 10mm spacer up front as I'm running KW V3.
