I know, I'm gonna get an mtech2 and hopefully a csl trunk.

Also, a bit hard to pull off the white on TiAG. I think white wheels would look much better on white, red or blue cars.
Yeah its the only way they'd fit...I'm still not sure about the white, I kinda think i should of done a gunmetal.

Its carbon fiber, but i think you're right, I may have to do that...

the specs are nice but since you went with such a big wheel in the rear. you cannot slam the back. that is why the rear looks silly in that pic above. you should of went with a 9.5 rear and dumped the back. putting a 10.5 on a Non M is just silly you cant really drive the car and 245 on a 10.5 is also silly. I am all for stretch but i think its too much. sorry man.

a 245 on a 10.5 is definitely not silly. its a nice stretch but its for sure nothing crazy or unheard of by any means

The fitment is on point. However, the car is dying for a more aggressive body kit w that wheel setup..In addition, Id go gun metal w the wheels

Looks good OP. I agree with the mtech II rear and csl trunk. That would really set it off!

Snapped a few pics today after a wash...Also removed the vinyl roof and did a little more fender work, no rubbing at all except on big dips. I think it looks a lot better without the vinyl, Thanks for the suggestion...Still hoping to find someone that can do a real shoot...

fitment is awesome, but i'm really not a fan of 19's on e46's. if these were 18's or 17's i'd absolutely love this car

i still think it looks good though even with the 19's

I know, they look even bigger cause there white. A guy asked me yesterday if they were 20's.... I wish they made them in 18's in our bolt pattern...

I'm not a fan of this normally..... but damn that looks great. +1 on the rear bumper, it would completely change the ass end.
