The white on white TE's really work well - love the yellow decal that really makes it pop! Now just get the same color brakes and you'll be set

That car was from a while ago, but we seem to remember it being fitted with KW V3s.

Yes, dammit you are correct sir. Both are hot, but diamond black gets my vote if I had to pick one.

Hey Sam, these look great and love the lip. Would you know which tires and sizes this car is running? Seeing that the fronts are stretched, it looks like a 245.

I would not have been happy with gloss or matte black because they almost look jet black and I don't like wheels that are so black that they merge and get lost in the tire. The diamond black with it's dark graphite finish is perfect Only have the pictures of the wheels for now. Plan to install them this summer and will post pictures then.

Thanks to Vivid Racing for awesome customer service and really quick same day shipping

That 18x11 +18 must be a new fitment option. Pretty cool! I wonder if they came up with other sizes. I wouldn't mind a 10 +25 ish for the fronts.

A few things:

Sam: I really like what you did with the m3 ~ those red wheels and red mirrors really tie in well together and pop nicely. My only suggestion is now your red tails might be a bit too much and to smoke them ever so slightly. Just my 2 cents. Now you got me thinking yellow mirrors and yellow wheels! What size are you front and rear tires? I think you have one of the nicest stances here for a E90 m3!


This is my setup right now, I'm planning to go a bit lower for a more "raked" look but the front lip is already so low I'm afraid to scratch it.
