Some Pics of new Wheels

Apologies for quality as I used the IPHONE and haven't got time to take decent pics - going on holidays for three weeks.....

Also some LCI lights :-)

So many E90 & E92's with the same rims and look all over the forums, but at least it looks better than stock.

Every car on the street now has alloy wheels - another reason to go gloss black.

Guessing he means calipers? Don't see how that's even possible unless you go carbon rotor$

Anyway, the new wheels look awesome! And I'm enjoying your old wheels - including the rear tyres rubbing on my fenders

I have seen them here but that doesn't look like a permanent solution since returns back to silver
http://www.ebay.ie/itm/BMW-E90-Saloo...item45ff30f9db

but have also seen quite a few car pics having blackened discs, not sure if there is a easier way though would look killer on a blackened car!

Stuart(bmroxm5), Is that possible to do?

Wasn't going to post these until I came back from Phillip Island on the weekend, but since you asked

And yes I'll probably get the guards rolled as they do rub quite a bit over some harsh bumps... love how they look though!

I use/d black paint... like rustguard or something - and just paint it on around the hub.

Before


After (when dry, it's not as glossy, blends in nicely)

Nice looking rims.
What rubber size are you running on? Also are those Michelin PSS?

Rims look good, look like nicer versions of the V710s I had on my old E92. But every time I see an Australian post, I can't help but cringe thinking of what these cars cost you. When I told my visiting Australian friend what I payed for my 335, he simply could not believe me. Not to troll and start a political debate, but when I visit Australia this summer, I need to find a politician who can sit down and tell me why I can buy an Aventador and a half here for the price of 458 Italia in Australia. My fully loaded X5M cost as much as the cheapest X5 35i there... I've read several articles about this and the BS given by company spokespeople is just ridiculous. I don't know why I'm concerned about this at all but it just bothers me so much!! Sorry for the rant.
