You saw it? I think I was the only dirty BMW there. Vancouver to Bimmerfest though one day of rain and a million bugs. My wheels turned semi gunmetal too with little black specks.

I am picking up a set of either VB3's in 18x9.5 all around orrrrrrrr VB2's since they seem to be a tad more rare. Either way, these are all pure sex

9.5" all around is definitely a insanely sick setup! I love the beefy square stances.

Shoot me over a PM, and ill take care of you.

Charles, my ZHP is a Silver Grey Metallic. The M3 on black V710's belongs to Luis and is the same color - crazy how different the colors look with his in the sunlight and mine in the shade.

BTW: Sending you a PM on a different topic.

Stealth/chrome bulbs will really make those clear side markers and tails pop against the grey paint.

Like the latest photo shoot!

Here is a rather cool shot I got at the Nurburgring today while my car was on the dyno ADAC sponsored during the Recaro Days car show and race going on. It's a rolling shot of a hyper black VMR715.
