BBS FI & Brembo GT Installed: Quick Photoshoot

All, I just recently installed a set of 19" BBS FI custom painted in gloss titanium as well as a set of Fire Orange Brembo GT 380 front and rear. Tires are Yoko AD08 265/30 and 295/30. I'm really happy with the way the wheel brake combo turned out! I also just purchased the ESS DCT software after Drew (DLSJ5) said it is a MUST for supercharger owners, so expect a review for that coming up soon.

All of the work on my car has been done by Alekshop, Sonic MS, and IND and I can't thank them enough.

Photo cred: Richard Le Photography + 2 pics from my iPhone (interior shot is prior to extended DCT shifters being installed)

Thanks guys! The car has never felt as nimble as it does with FIs. I have had 6 different sets of wheels and currently have 18" 19" and 20" wheels. None of the other wheels have made the car feel this good.

Thank you, it really does look amazing! Richard does all of the photo work for Sonic MS, so I'll have to ask him more about the details.

Thanks man. I originally started off my car saying it was good enough performance wise and mainly went for cosmetics, but my attitude has shifted quite a bit and now I want the best of both worlds as this is my DD.

Thanks, Cal! I had no idea you worked for Morr now. You actually helped me install the very first cosmetic mod on the car (my 1st VRS front lip)
