Car shinny clean, playing some Bob Marley Top down, cool breeze surrounding you, cruising the highway at €£mph, getting the looks from the girls and then the guys give you a envious --- F#€K you Mot#€ F ¥**R Look -- and when he finally catches up to you at the stop light you look over at him and. Then you meet up with friends and. Then you get home and wifey and then you Then you go outside and look at your BIMMER and. Yeah the first drive with the top down reminds me of many more to come

Those rear headrest covers look potentially dangerous. Will they prevent the deployment of rear roll bars???

My car has same wheels (I think) - I think they come off a sedan. I like them, and I prefer a square tire setup.
My car is similar, but is topaz blue with manual transmission, and black interior - I would have preferred tan, but black is growing on me..
Here is an old pic - but it looks about the same today. It is an older prefacelift.

I had random music playing - from ipod in glove box - it included some Bob Marley - but on this day it picked mostly Steel Pulse

Not really they are not that strong at the seams. I unsecured the seams so a little tugging and it will break apart. About the wheels I don't know, I bought the car with them. Will soon be changing the wheels. Cracked one about 2 month ago had it welded but now it has a slow leak. Looking to get a set of 18'' vmr v710 or rep 220 style. Would prefer the 220 reps. Just my preference.

No spacer, just 18x8, 18x9 with Hankooks tires, 255 and 225. Very slight rub in rear over heavy dips. The ride is great.

thanks, its not what you think, actually its trial thing, but I have gotten a lot of positive feedback on this. It's actually center caps stickers, I just measured the TDC and stick them on.
