BC Forged. Challenge Exhaust. Interior Bits

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Finally got some decent pics to post up. Here are the details:

Wheels - BC Forged
Model - HB-S02 (2pc Signature Series)
Front 19x9 ET 15
Rear 19x10 ET 20
Finish - Brushed Black Centers/ Brushed Black Barrel

Tires are stock Pirelli's - 245/35/19 & 265/35/19

Thanks goes out to Darwin & Cal at Sonic. Great customer service and a pleasure to deal with.

I am extremely happy with the set. The concavity is amazing and the wheel itself looks big for a 19". The tinted clear is perfect in my opinion, it's not too light and not too dark. The quality of the brush and clear finish is perfect. One thing to note is that the offsets sit very flush so it's a good thing I am running stock widths. I might be able to get away with a 255/275 combo but anything wider than that and I think rubbing would become an issue. I drove about 100 miles on them this weekend and the car feels great. From what I can tell the wheels are well built and both the barrels and centers are forged.

The exhaust is the new stainless steel axle back from Challenge.

Thanks to Nate at IND for the great customer service and Challenge for producing an incredible system.

Very nice car with tasteful touches. So far you and I have the ONLY 2 Alpine White ZCP coupes with moonroof I have EVER seen on this board. Manuals too. Rare birds. Congrats.

It's actually from the new F10 5 series but could be the same as the knob that comes with the new F30. I retrofitted it with the OEM M3 boot stitched by IND. it looks much nicer than the black dildo that comes with the M.

Unfortunately no. I was hoping it was going to when I ordered it but no luck.
