BBS FI - Alpine white

Well at last after a eight week wait they have finally arrived and after getting the C-Quartz on them I fitted them today. What suprised me most was how light they feel, the UPS guy who delivered thought it was tyres only!

Really pleased with the look and equally impressed with how the car now feels. Definitely feels more nimble and the steering is fantastic. Super chuffed.

Big thanks to some of the guys on here with their advice on tyre sizes, much appreciated.

Also a big thanks to Hendrik at Baan Velgen for supplying and his impeccable service.

Looks great! What are you dropped on? Also, these look to have a more aggressive offset than others..are you running spacers too?

Yes, running intrax springs which are a bit lower at the front than eibachs.

Put 10 spacers on and pleased with the stance.

245/35 up front and 275/35 at the rear. No rubbing which was key for me.
