Looking good Charlie, I saw your car in your sig a few times and was hoping you would make a build thread. Keep the mods coming.

Definitely! Hyperblack looks great on silver cars, almost like a polished wheel. Matte black might have taken some of the details away from the wheel.

Love the car! I know you got the shift knob from another member but do you know where you can get this at? I think it looks sick!

Love the direction this is going in! Those wheels will look absolutely fantastic, especially with meaty tires!

As a personal opinion, I'd prefer an HPF turbo over the ESS supercharger, even if it is a bit more expensive! But regardless, I cannot wait to see this thing finished! Preferably in person.

255 in front if you go 285 rear. This is what I had. But when I went with the Michelin Super Sport rears they didn't have the 285 and only 275. I find with the Super Sports I break traction a lot more. If you're going Supercharger, I'd go with 285s. My PS2s were much grippier than the Super Sports for what it's worth.

I have always liked the BBS CH-R wheel.

You never cease to amaze me. The M (and the ZHP) you've created are stylish and compelling pieces of what a BMW can be...

Looking forward to seeing one of them later this year...
