Cool PHOTOSHOOT: Some CONCAVITY, some OSS, and more...

Alright guys,

I finally got around to getting a couple good shots of the car. I've been working on the car for a while and after countless little snags, I finally have it in one piece.

I'll start with the front and rear. I'm not going to mention who I bought them from because to be honest I'm not at all satisfied with the quality, but the front bumper and trunk are Amuse Ericsson reps. I had the front splitters painted matte black to play against the wheels a little bit. Then, we custom fit an M5 grill into the lower bumper grill to give it more of an OEM look, and to avoid the chicken wire that came with the bumper.

The side skirts were made custom by Luis@OSS along with the headlights.

The Exhaust system is Eisenmann Race with a custom X-pipe.

The front and side grilles were purchased from IND.

The black-out emblems were purchased from E92-lighting.

And the wheels are DPE sp-sc 5 wrapped in Nitto Invo's. We tried to match the front concavity to the back and finished them with a flat-black face and a gloss black barrel.

Big thanks to Luis@ OSS for all the help and the great shots! And thanks to everyone else involved.

I probably won't be keeping the front and trunk so If there is anyone local that is interested feel free to PM me and we'll work something out! The front will need to be repainted.

Enjoy!

looking VERY close to my car once my wheels come in (the same ones haha). Do you like the gloss black barrels? I had that ordered but just switched to all matte black (didn't want it to look gaudy at all).. but those look pretty good. Thoughts?

TBH it doesn't really matter. After about 2 minutes of driving the gloss is no longer noticeable. The brake dust is a killer. Anyway, originally I had planned to paint the roof flat black as well, so the gloss black barrel would help balance things out a bit more. In the end, I decided agains the roof.

You have good taste!

Thanks man, it's a very subtle change but they are one of my favorite pieces of the car.

whats wrong with the quality? I have been looking for wheels with just as much concavity for the front as in the back. i know its harder due to the wheel width difference. please PM me.

thanks.
