They ride great, no complaints, I've had them for almost 2 years now and made 2 trips to so-cal and they still ride great. I've always had konis in the back though, I heard the shocks that come with them are crap and make the ride super bouncy.

i love white on tiag, i suggest going clears all around (taillights, blinkers, etc) to pull off the white wheels better.

question - who rolled / pulled your fender and how did he do it ? such a clean job.

Haha anyways, I was planning to get those wheels for my topaz blue m3. I think I still might do it. Im a fan of white wheels. I'm rocking white wheels right now actually for a little bit. I'll probably pick a set of those up next week. But congrats on the aggressive offset on a freaking sedan. That's crazy.
