Red Death revisited

Ask most people in the aftermarket parts business what they think of their fellow neighboring businesses, and they will tell you that competition is fierce and any relationship with a fellow local shop is always strained at best, and outright malicious at worst.

For whatever reason, this is just not the case in Chicago. Although Challenge, WheelSTO, and IND Distribution often cater to the same clients, all of us are extremely close friends. All three companies not only work together, but spend time outside of work as well. Whether itís moving furniture, towing your car to a local track event, or just hanging out on the weekends, you can find the staff of Challenge, WheelSTO, and IND spending time together.

When Mike, the owner of Red Death decided that the car needed a new look, all of us knew we had to pitch in. Challenge helped by providing the new exterior parts for the car, WheelSTO did the nearly impossible by securing a set of TE37 SL wheels for Red Death in record time, and IND brought KW ClubSport coilovers and our paint work to the table.

The carís new track-ready look will suit Mike well next season as he begins to test the carís limits at local events.

I like the new TE37 SL rims!

The red lettering on the wheels accents the car's body color pretty well.

Looks awesome! Do I spy the new sedan LCI tail lights. I thought red death was an 08 and if so how difficult is it to retrofit?

Very nice. I would lightly tint the tail lights though, too much red going on

Amazing taste in mods Mike!! You pretty much built everything I had envisioned for my pop's E90. I can't wait to be back in town permanently! You should hit up some Test N' Tune days with me and David!

oh and we need a TE37 photoshoot

they don't come with center caps. from my understanding, part of the way Volk saved weight on these was by shaving and widening the center cap area. hence, why they don't fit the standard caps. in the end, you get a lighter wheel and cheaper
