VB3's are conservative enough to stay with the relatively stock look that BMW offers while V710's need a more aggressive appearance to mix with the wheel design. This opinion is from my point of view and what I see...it will differ from others though.

Yeah, pulling off V710s is hard if you aren't pretty low IMO.

Check out our flickr account and you may be able to find what you're looking for.

I don't believe that you have any problems with not being low enough

Looks good. Not too often do you see an aggressive fitment with fat tires. Do you have anymore pictures?

^ Your car pulls it off in a decent way! When I mounted my 710 19's on stock ZHP height....it looked 4x4'ish so I took them off asap and put my winter on until I installed suspension. LOL. Maybe it's something to do with red vs black.

Another thing that helps your car work it is that aside from the height, it really looks aggressive. The front splitters and roof rack help a lot. You'll be golden after the cup kit. And maybe you'll actually make it to a meeting one day.

Looking good. You have great photography skills too.

Are you having any rubbing issues with that set up?

This is all that I could find for now. Sorry that it's a bit small.

I know. I accidentally broke the clips on one of my smoked ones. Just haven't gotten around to fixing it.
