My E90 M3 AW now running on VMR 713's

Hi Guys,

Any thoughts on this switch of wheel?

I changed from my stock powdered coated ones to these VMRís 713ís today, they are kitted with Yoko Ad08 tyres. Now I know the pictures arenít of a great quality and the trye walls need blackening out and the wheels are need of a polish etc, but what are your opinions?

Old



New (edited with up dated shots)
















Thanks for looking:

They look great Marcus ,told you they would they do need a bit of a polish but they do look really good when they are totally clean ,you just need some time and they will come up really well then just seal them .

The wheels look good. And you're right, the car needs a cleaning and some better pics.

Man, your tips stick out pretty far!

How does that not bother you? That would kill me, I would go back to whoever installed your exhaust and have them have their eyes checked!

On the other hand, the wheels look good!

I didn't think that there was anyway of getting around this with the Remus Race on the E90, doesn't bother me one bit though

But thanks for the comment on the wheels

ref the Remus on the E90 ,you could cut the rear tips off and have them cut down and then welded back on ,a good fabricator could easily do this for you .

Wheels look great Marcus - defo should have blacked the tyres up tho' before the pics ha ha - impatient eh

You should be well proud of the motor now buddy, looks stunning.

I do agree with Mikey on the exhaust tho, if you could lose an inch off the tips it would make all the difference. It is the main thing that put me off buying the Remus sport last year off another member. The E90 is just that little bit shorter and all the exhausts are really designed for the E92/3 in mind.

v713s looks great. But overall with this set up, I prefer the OEM in black.

I didn't see any negative comments on his car. He asked for opinions and he got them. I am not a fan of the wheels, but overall the car looks good! I just think the design is too open. Time for a BBK to fill them up!
