With a name like BBS you can't go wrong. FI is one of the most beautiful wheels they have ever made and forged - so it can take the stresses of daily driving as well as on track. I'm waiting on my set and will report in this thread... check out the pictures with silverstone!

4sevens set is 18", but most will be 19" in a 9.5" front and 10.5" rear. They're the second best wheels available, with the best one's being the BBS RI-D made in Japan that's even lighter than the FI, and look almost the same.

Great wheel but, in my opinion, A big brake kit is a must if you sport the F1s.

I sold my BBS LM-R to pick up the FI (19s). Definitely unique, exclusive, craftsmanship, weight saving, looks, and finish made this wheel worth every penny. I agree with the above statement, you have to get BBK, which is next on my mod list.

asking "should i buy BBS FI" is like asking "should i buy a Patek Philippe"?

if you can afford it, there is no downside

Not a fan of matte black for the wheels. You can't really see the wheels.

It also depends on what color for callipers you will go.
On my frozen grey I had matte black and TI matte .
I liked the TI matte the best. Anyhow, in my eyes black is out.
On your car I would go diamond silver or diamond black (which actually has nothing to do with black). See tlp s car here:

http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=760600

Just go for a bright color for the rims since the unique FI design will only come out with a bright colour and go for an accent color on the callipers
Ask some photoshop pros to help you out

Seeing your car, I would even more recommend a bright gloss color.
Not that I do not like TI matte - I am a big fan of it, but in my opinion not with Silverstone

I really want to post my car to let you see it but I don't know how. I have E 92 with 20'' BBS.
