I never actually considered it - is it just parts off of a 330ci?

The Wheels look brutal, how much of a drop have you put on the car?

Are you running 245/35 and 275/30's and what make of tyre.

How is the ride compared to the 18's and how is the handling etc with the wider takkies?

Enjoy, she looks absolutely beautiful.

Just ordered the alum headlight trim at the dealership, I'm sure it's the same as the 330 trim.

The tires are Pirelli's (PZero's) and the sizes as you indicated.

Ride is great, I didn't notice any negative differences at all, and it corners like you wouldn't believe now! Not that it was all that bad before, but I personally did not care for the Contisport tires.

Thanks for the comments, I'm definitely enjoying her.

Michelin's on my Schnitzer Type III Racing rims - Michelin, were the only people here in SA with the homologation certificate for these tyres (19" sizes you have), therefore had to go with them.

They are currently 5 weeks behind when they promised they would get my tyres here and will be picking up the tab for the wear on the Conti's (and boy have I been wearing them) :-) I will also push for big time discounts on the airfreight as they could've actually shipped them here faster.

Was installing the matt chrome headlight trim difficult or did you
have your dealer do it?

What are the wheel widths and what size tires did you use??? I'm assuming 19x9 front with a 245/35/19 and 19.9.5 rear with a 275/30/19 tire???

raped for the phone installation, the additional cost of doing that was negligible. I did the pedals, clears and xenon-effect foglamps myself though (wow- big boy!)

Did you get the BMW centercap at Bekkers as well as the M logo? Your combination looks great so great I may do the same thing! Is your wheel size 19x8.5 (front) and 19x9.5 (rear) and are spacers required for fitting the Hartge wheel? Nice posting and good luck with her!
