Looks really good, I might just keep my Apollo's and mix it up as like you say they look even better in the flesh!!

I also think they are a really good looking wheel thats not too fussy and different from the normal replica's you see on a lot of cars....

Yep I'll second that, they actually look much better in the flesh and not so "gangsta" as they may first appear. I believe they were designed with the e90 in mind. Anyways it's an msport so make it look sporty.

They look lovely! Very nice indeed Mart.

Are you running the Eibach Pro Kit with them too?

The drop might be not as much as you'd have liked Mart,but at least the ride/comfort has not been compromised.
From experience, the aesthetic of a slammed car is not worth the discomfort!

It looks good,it's different from the norm (CSL reps etc) and as you say the subtle drop makes it look sweet.

As a matter on interest,how do your colleagues react to your dibbling with your P&J?

Don't get me wrong mate I didn't want a big drop, I did know the eibachs would be subtle. Just warning people against the eibachs if they want a big drop.

Guys at work are fine about it. Alot of true petrol heads amongst us.

In over 7 years I've only ever had one person mention something to me, and that was about my bike (advising me to get a bigger number plate). I advised him to fuck off and that was that really.

On the hunt for a decent looking rear spoiler, nothing too drastic. Any suggestions? Not sure if I want to go down the front splitter route yet either. Gonna have to paint hubs/callipers at some stage too as these wheels afford a very good view of the grubby shite behind them.

Think you could clear 10mm spacers on the rear and 5mm on the front

Many people on here have used 'SSDD' (including myself). Their paint finish is absolutely spot-on.

Sooty, make sure you post pics please

Mr Singh, I was thinking that. I'm 50/50 about spacers at the mo as I like it how it is but there is room to come out for sure, we'll see.

Cyprio, I'll take a look at the website cheers mate.

They look great! I can't wait to fit mine, I was thinking of painting them black but it doesn't do them justice!

The MSport replica spoilers look good on the E90's....

I can vouch for this. Nice paint finish, easy to stick on and looks great.
