Hhhmmmm.... This is the first pic of the e92 I've seen that's just seems unflattering. Maybe it's the lighting...


...or maybe it's the gap in the fenderwell, or the wheels themselves, not sure...

I was expecting so much more based on the title of the post.

The title should read. Crappy M3 pic with fugly rims.

It actually is almost bad enough to ask the mods for a title change...

I just realized the gap, i still like it though. I'm surprised nobody else likes the rims, it kinda reminds me of the old BBS rims.

the gap between the wheels and the fender kill the look completely. but even if the gap wasn't there it still doesnt look right, probably because the lighting is all weird.

The color isn't so great. I love that bright blue color they had for the older 3 series.

It's just a poorly taken picture. A nicer pic of the same car:

Something about these just seems alittle off to me. I think its the fact that they are trying to make the mesh look bigger than it actually is by having it reach all the way to the end of the rim.

For anyone with a problem with curbs.. these would probably be the least favorable choice for you, ever.

Question

Is it just me, or does the CF roof not look right with JB?
