No not the m5's rims. I forgot who made them.

I need to repair the inner lip on one, small bent, and when I do that I am also gonna have them paint the rims black with a dark red inner tone. When I do that I will be sure to grab the makers cause I do enjoy the spoke design.

I also gotta find out who made the exhaust because it doesn't have that rasp sound I hear a lot in other videos. Some, but usually after a cold start standing still, when on the gas the car just growls with very little 'rasp'.

Any idea of the wheel/tire set-up? Is it square by chance?

Looks really good.
