Thanks dude, appreciate the kind comments.

GY Assy 3 -235/35/19 & 265/30/19

I''ll get some interior pics up as it was but undergoing a few tweaks so presently no door cards, nav unit etc

Exhaust is custom (zero exhausts) he does work in the states for private and M3 race team etc

GY assy 3? WTH is that.
I know they're DPE S20. I have a set I'm rebuilding now.
I'm curious as to your widths and offset if you ever measured them since they're not provided by DPE.

Goodyear asymmetrics type 3

19x8.5 front 25 offsets, Lips 1.75"
19x10 rear 20 offsets, Lips 3.25"*

Just had mine tweaked even though there as good as new but wanted to put my twist on them

Hahah nope ! Dakar almost looks like a matte yellow. Very light. Phoenix has a few tints of green and looks much more shiny! But yeah that m3 is just wow! Love the red accents. Perfectly done!

Thanks dude, it took some considerably effort but I just came up with the concept and monies to go for it. I''ll try and get some better detail up on this and the rest of my build to date.

Thanks for the comments guys
