Take it from another SG E90 owner - I think it looks great. De tint the tails, get red center caps + some springs and you should have a big change of heart on the way it looks.

Exactly what I had in mind...thanks. I've decided to keep her, she is quite stunning the more I look at it the more it grows on me.

Looking for some red center caps right now and it seems like they are impossible to find. Can someone PM me a reputable vendor?

They'll both look good honestly, and I'm digging your tinted tails

Snapped a few pics today, right before it was forecasted to snow. Please let me know your thoughts.
Leave them, looks sick. Beautiful M, I was going to buy an E90 M just like this from Darien BMW in july but someone got there before I did.

Hope to see you around.

Awesome wheels, especially to that color car.

Thumbs up

I know I'm in the minority, but I'm not a huge fan of either wheel. Of the two, I like the LM-R's much more. My favorite wheels are ADV1, BBS CH-R, and of course... Advan-RS

Car looks clean, though!

You should google ADV1 and then come back and let us know how much you like them... Lot's of controversy with that brand. Their designs look good but I wouldn't touch them.

Looks great, don't change a thing. Unless the roads are too rough for 20s, then go down in diameter.

Like I said, I know I'm in the minority and they certainly wouldn't be my track wheels, but they look amazing.

As far as wheels go, you've got a pretty killer combo of street and track setups. Nicely done.
