I'm sorry but that looks terrible, to much wheel gap and why do the tires look so stretched?

tires are not stretched just tire shine, fronts may be 215on the 225(front rubber came with tires plenty of tread), wheel gap im still iffy about dropping the xi for the cv boot issue. i do agree on the gap looking shitty but dunno if its worth it just for looks seeing that its just a car. Keeping up maintenance is main priority and if lowering causes issues :S idunno.........but was thinking eibach springs if i do decide

I consider cosmetic mods to be an extension of my personality. If you post "should I do xxx" you will get a different answer from almost everone. Rule of thumb-do your maint 1st.
You're off to a good start.

Nice car, search for the answers to your question. I assure you they are out there, probably even on the first page.

Also, no offense, but type out the whole word. It really doesn't take that much longer to do, but sure saves us a whole lot of time in reading it. These are forum posts, not text messages (or txt msgs if you will). Oh and punctuation is also a good thing.

do I know u? no
do u know me ? no
so y u telling me how I should type and what questions to ask in a thread I started
I dont care if u had problems reading what i typed, I dont care if every1 had problems reading what i typed since u seem to think they did "us"

that means ROFL still cant figure it out R=roll O=on the F=floor L=laughing there that will prolly save someone a pointless lecture that has nothing to do with bmws
