Nice job. But I'm not into the kits and dark rims.

Can you put some mesh-style rims on there? Like these Axis Supermesh or similar.

That's probably the route I'm going to go.

Thanks.

Can someone put these on my car posted above, along with clear corners and sidemarkers, but leave the front bumper reflector orange?

check it... i just got my 5 and ordered new iforged aeros for it. 20x8.5 front and 20x10 rear. I got it with a 3 inch lip in the front and a 4.5 inch lip in the rear. i forged told me the closest I can see what it will look like is the supra below, except he has a 19x12 in the rear, and mines in a 20x10 but the lip is 4.5 in the rear on the supra. hook it up man cuz i got another 3 weeks before my wheels come in and im dying to see it with them on. also, im waiting on H&R race springs which drop 2" all around. i'm putting links in case pics are too big.

This might be asking too much but...

I hope this isn't to much to ask because i want to do this to my wheels but don't want to spend 700 bills and hate it. Anyway i don't know how to post pics on here and i dont have a digital camera. So with that said can someone please take the silver 325i on the first page of these pots's and make it jet black with the wheels blacked out and a polished lip. Thanks alot.

If I didn't live in the Northeast I would consider getting my ride dropped but no chance with the snow we get.
