Those look terrible on the 1m unfortunately. They almost look chrome on your pics but otherwise the 1 is just too tiny for that style. The design of the wheel has very "big" open pieces which makes it look great on the 3 or 5, or even 6 but when the rest of the car is a pip squeek, the wheels just dominate.

ALso if you flaunt FI's you NEED a BBK. The stock brakes look ridiculous with all that openess. Sweet wheels (my favs) but wrong car

These look better than stocks. Let alone probably weigh less and help the car perform better. GJ bro.

OP you ask for opinions and you get them, then you are super defensive. Not everyone is going to love the 1m and actually a lot of them think it looks ridiculous. Those wheels make it look worse. Don't post pics if you don't want an opinion on them. THose are my favorite wheels and its injustice to slap them on a 1m

To OP you should really learn how to take constructive criticism, nobody is hating on the wheels just the way they look on your car. Stop being so over dramatically defensive. I'm getting the same wheels in a Titanium finish put on my Jet Black E92, do you know why? Cos they work. They could work on your car if you painted them gloss black so in a photo like that nobody would be able to see them lol. You should have gone the HRE route, one of there wheels in an 18inch application with a nice drop would have been sick.

This is the 2nd ///M you are trying to create through your own vision, and it's not the Matrix so your sequel blows dick.

Anyhow, this is M3Post not 1addicts so you can move along with your extra defensive attitude now.

I wasn't being defensive I was simply replying to your comment. Everyone should have there own opinions and I completely understand not everyone will like what I like. Be sure to post some pics of your car with these wheels when you get them.

Looks great! I saw these same wheels on the Studie car:





But on the Orange I think black would have looked better. I like the polished on the white

I think if he lowered it a bit it'd look 100x better.



FI's are SEX !
