I'd keep these over your other wheel option... .02

thanks for your feedback matt! in a perfect world i would love to have both. after switching from the oem 19's to the vs7's the weight difference is VERY noticeable. at the end of the day i would like the vert to be a bit more performance-oriented, so we'll see how it goes

You're making us vert owners proud I love oem 19s, if I sell one of my sets of wheels I'd like to get a set of oem 19s even staggered. I meant I like the VS7's over arc-8's The morr's were my first real light weight set of wheels. I do not see myself owning another heavy/fake set as my main wheels. The weight savings just feels so good in cornering and even just hitting bumps on the road.

oh no i understood you correctly i just want some wide lightweight 18's as well. id love to have a set of 18s AND 19s that i can change up whenever i feel bored


but as of right now im loving the morr's soooo much, just cant wait to get the fitment squared away!

holy sh1t when did you get a white m3???!?! looks fukin sick! ill update you on the lip when its painted along with a few other goodies, i dont wanna ruin the surprise just yet

here's a pic after i finished installing 20mm spacers in the rear as well as studs. fenders are slightly rolled but they will be cut very soon to free up more space!



also found out today that my ridiculous camber up front is probably due to the top hats being installed incorrectly (my bad ). ill fix that tomorrow and the fitment should be lookin pretty good all around! here's a pic of my camber up front, id guess its around -3, this is the least negative i can go!

Not a fan of the CSL style wheels much these days, but those MORR ones look bad ass.
Coming along VERY nicely.

Yup I had it re sprayed to alpine after that happened. I also swapped the interior for cinnamon about a year ago. The car used to be black on black. I also just got a new set of wheels I leave it for a surprise

finally fixed my ridiculous camber up front. the car is sitting a bit high since i just took it off the jack. kinda contemplating doing something with the springs up front to lower them a bit more while i save up for coils. has anybody removed the top spring pads on the fronts? i currently only have the bottom ones removed.

next batch of mods should be a bit more performance-oriented
