1. 19 inch BBS CH-R wheels black
2. Red caps
3. Custom painted MOTORSPORT lettering (Melbourne red)
4. Pilot super sport tires 255/35/19 (F) and 275/35/19 (R)
5. Drop with Eibach pro springs

Thanks to the guys at GMP performance (Justin) in Charlotte.

I would get black center caps. The red ones look off for some reason.

Car looks great otherwise

That looks soo good! Good Job! You know you can get that Silver ring around the edge of the wheel painted from IND or some other vendor on the forums. Simply pop off the silver ones and put red ones on. I think that would tie in the look very well. Either way. Looks awesome!

Edit: I think the red caps look great but maybe the Gold lettering on the caps might be what others are saying looks off. Maybe see if you can track down some red with black Lettering or Black with Red lettering.

Your car looks way too good! Great choice and beautiful scenery

At times I wish I had ordered Melbourne Red instead of Space Grey; your car is one of those that makes me reconsider my decision. Enjoy it to the fullest and stay safe out there.

Gorgeous. Would love to see a front splitter of some sort to finish it off nicely!

I think it looks great! But I think it would look even better if you swapped out the red center caps for black ones and the red gills for black.

A close up shot of MOTORSPORT paint job. Another picture of Innotech sport exhaust axle back laying around and ready to be installed. I lacked the courage to start with a full system, I will try this and see how it goes. I do have black caps laying around they come with the wheels, red caps were extra. Maybe I will try them out some time in the future. I did consider the red pinstripe but thought it might be over the top. Plus, I suspect it is going to make me happy to be constantly tweaking the car rather than doing every thing at once. Once last shot of the car on Stelvio pass.

Nice! You got the Innotech sport exhaust! Looks like another Melbourne red M3 with an Innotech exhaust. I just got my Innotech F1 evo system in the mail on wednesday.
