New Wheels [Teaser till its light Enough for a proper Photoshoot]

Hey All,

So as some of you may know, I have some very shiny wheels:


But um, well as some of you may also know, the car has been a bit of a problem when it comes to fixing and the wheels have been a major issue the entire time... well at last the final straw has been burnt to a crisp and so we have this here:

here are the wheels in the day. Pretty nice Range rover sport replicas tbh that I thought suited it well. and when your only car has only 3 wheels its kinda hard to wait for oems that cost twice as much to turn up... so I have to go with these sorry lads who dont like them

went with a similar 5 spoke design but they're a Range Rover sport copy that I thought looked pretty good for the price (that and I cant afford to wait for $2000 ones from melb to be shipped up (and that isnt going to be cheap either ))

Put the M badge back on and I reakon you will then have the nicest e46 in Australia.

Those wheels plus M badge. No one will be able to tell the difference.






PS. Since these wheels are POS replicas I hope you are happy paying money to make your car slower, less fuel efficient and handle worse now. I reakon you just added at least 0.5 secs to your 0-100 times with those wheels. And the sad thing is you didn't sacrifice performance for looks coz it looks fkn h0m0

+1 as long as you like them, then that's all that matters.
