New Mods! 20" Alloy Technic Mesh, Euro front Bumper, and BMW perfomance spoiler

Well title of the post says it all. Just finished outfitting my car with a bunch of goodies. Car is sitting on Eibach Pro-Kits with modified guide supports and E36 M3 bumpstops.

Took me awhile to decide on a set of wheels for this car but after seeing pics of the Alloy technic's and how ridiculously light weight they are it was hard to pass them up. I got the wheels from Peter Lee at www.*******perts.com He was super cool to deal with and a great guy to talk to. He went above and beyond and cant stress enough the great customer service. Hope to definately do business with him again. I have the wheels custom finished locally. They are machined face with hyper grey pockets. The pockets in most light looks pretty much silver but depending on how the light hits it, it looks almost the same color as the exterior of my car which is obviously space grey.

Went with 255/30/20 in the front and 285/30/20 in the rear. Car doesnt ride much harsher then with my stock 19's, actually cant feel the difference. Havent had much time on the wheels so hard to really judge, although so far Id say pretty much the same as the 19's in terms of ride quality which is surprising to me. Might be because the OEM PS2's are so hard.

I also got the new bumper painted so no more reflectors and installed the carbonfiber BMW performance spoiler using 3M tape. Anyways here are the pics!

Nice ride. I love those wheels, but I didn't know they were fairly lightweight. Very cool!

Great Setup! looks amazing and the Alloy technic Wheels are definitely a lightweight for a 20" Forged Monoblock wheel.

Those wheels go really well with the car. Almost OEM like. I dig! Get the cf splitters to match that spoiler.

Thats one of the main reasons I got these wheels is that they look oem but a little more agressive Thanks for the info on the tiresize, ended up going with what you are running and also inspired me to get the spoiler. To be honest not a huge fan of the splitters. Dont like how they graphically seperate the lower mouth. Havent seen a front splitter im in love with so leaving it as it is for now.

Wheels and spoiler werent on then Was that before or after they took it for a joy ride? They do great work but wasnt too happy that they drove the car and reset the trip odometer as if I wouldnt know. Also picked up the car with TPMS failure and had to take it to the dealer. Turns out they forget to plug the sending unit back in when they had the bumper off
