esquire,

What are the specs on your wheel set-up. Are you running 255/275 PSS with spacers? You are inspiring me to go back to ZCP for a while.

Thansk hyperjack. Yeah I like the rolling shot too. Although i have to say my favorite is rear shot. Something about the way the light shadowed the contours of the back.

Thanks Rob. Yeah the photography (and photographer) was top notch.

Not a fan of the vorsteiner trunk huh? Funny, its one of the things I KNEW I wanted on the car before i even had it. Different strokes I guess. But that's okay. Its about doing what makes you (the owner) happy at the end of the day. Thanks for the compliments man.

Your ride is looking sick too. See you at bimmerfest? M-Fest?

Yeah. Believe it or not, sticking with OEM has been a conscious decision. Ther are other wheels that come close to giving me what I want, but not quite. (Although, I do think I've identified a contender now).

I love the ZCP wheels. They're gorgeous to me. Here are the specs for now. 285/35 Pilot Super Sports in the Rear, 265/35 in the Front, on KW clubsports, and spaced out aggressively. To be honest though, I'm not a fan of this fitment of tires. Next time I want to go 30 series all around. 35 has too much profile for me.

Which last pic are you referring to? The last pic in the first post? or the last pic in the second post?
