whatever floats your boat Jamaica. I like a variety of wheels, not just silver and I dont dig the white/black lips.

I will wait to see pics on the car, but you gonna have to change my mind...

I have a fender roller if you want to try it yourself, to whomever was asking.

I went candy blue with brushed aluminum for the lips. I think it will be nuts on the white car when its done, but it wont be that great on the black one for springfest.

Actually John. I don't have to change your mind. Ultimately, it doesn't matter what anyone thinks so long as I like it.

Here's an example of white wheels on IR M3 to give you an idea..... granted it doesn't have the black lips, but I'm sure you could picture that.

^ yeah, that pic is saved, when i couldnt decide on the lip color, that pic is why i opted not to go full white. i like it tho... the white just pops, love it.
Plus u figure he doesn't have cf splitters and blacked out side grills, smoked side markers, or a black soft top... i have those things which will work well with the black lips. just watch.. y'all gonna see.

The wheels in my sig were the ones i had for sale and sold a few weeks ago.

Are you going to paint any other part of the car white to match the wheels? Side mirrors maybe? Either that or red center caps on the wheels? Or BBK with red calipers behind them? I can dig the red on white, but you have black accents on your car already, so throwing JUST white faces into the mix doesn't really flow IMO. You need something else on the car to be white, or something on the wheels to be red in order for it to fit. Just my $0.02

There's an IR M3 vert on M3F on white 95s that's pretty but I have a thing for 95s, so that might be why my opinion is biased on that one.

My all black theme matches. IDC what anyone says. I'm not saying your black and white wheels won't look good, I'm just saying you need something else to match, but thats just my opinion. Contrast? So you like this style theme?

For those who aren't informed, C&C is huge. When C&C is not around, monthly meets are posted on facebook to either e46 fanatics group or hampton road bmw m owners group. message me or someone who is on her if interested.

Also for the record, there are 14 registered members going to sumospeed springfest so far, and more that just havent registered yet. I will be bringing a grill and beer. Group is meeting at racewerks at 10 before the meet to all roll together.
