Finally got it w/new wheels mounted!

6-30-09: Updated pics with new mods!

Volk Racing TE37 Time Attack wheels (matte black face w/thin red lip at the edge). Time Attack wheels started in Japan involving Time Attack trials/races to differentiate the race cars from show cars. Volk is used by the majority (Top 10) of the JGTC (Japan's most popular form of professional motorsport racing like NASCAR in the U.S. & F1 in Europe). This is my 3rd set of TE37's & 4th Volk wheel overall. I absolutely love these wheels! Strong (forged monoblock) yet aggressive (matte black w/red lip) styling make it a great match for a Melbourne red metallic M3 w/the carbon fiber roof. Also installed:

- Vorsteiner cf trunk partially painted (1x1 weave to match the roof)
- GruppeM cf ram-air intake (including front bumper driver's side ram-air duct replacement)
- Auto Technik matte black grilles (front & fenders)
- Evosport paint match front bumper reflectors
- GP Thunder 7500k replacement bulbs for halo rings
- Lumar ATC tinted windows (20% sides & 15% back window)

Volk TE37 Time Attack wheel & Toyo T1-R tire specs:

19x8.5; +30mm; 20.5-pounds & 245/35/19
19x10.5; +25mm; 21.5-pounds & 275/35/19

The rear tires are stretched a little but I like the look of it plus this size tire was the closes to matching the oem overall tire diameter to retain an accurate speedometer. I love MR especially when the Sun hits it directly, such a gorgeous color!...MR FTW yo! Comments are welcome but please lets not make this a, "Why would you put Japanese wheels on a European car" thread.
