I think you need more low. I'm not a fan of E88 at all but otherwise looks good!

hmmm..needs a drop, agreed that style, you'll need a larger wheel to make it look good...but overall not bad..just not my cup of tea!

You have some work to do! For starters, lower that front!!!

You're on your way! E88's take some work to look proper.

Those wheels never looked good on the E9x cars for some reason. This is having seen them in person.

i think it's the contrast of colors and the fat chrome lip...makes the mesh look too small...

Yes, these are the same wheels as mine, so I need more rubber in the rear and lower the car.
