nick...a dish would look sweet on your car

i saw these wheels last year and almost considered myself as i was doing the whole CF theme to mine...but i felt the car wouldnt do it justice as a non M3 car is just not wide enough...(the wheels would have probably been too wide anyways but i would have made them fit somehow lol)

Dips the guy who does all the work for me im sure is the one who re-done the lips in frozen grey too!

one things for sure is that they are a unique set of wheels...not something you can find so easily..

The rims on cutters are awesome! A proper set of forged rims takes the cakes!

I think i remember that you are going to have a cinnamon interior ? Reckon that will look good and possibly enhance the 'bronzeness'!

Talking of cinnamon .. it was my favourite colour on an E46 M3 (black or grey ) and so wished i had ordered it rather than the red I had. I didn't realise i liked it till i saw it at a BM3W meet on a mates car .. and was always envious of his choice.

Oh - and when are we going to be able to see this car in the flesh ? Will be worth the drive from the south coast I think
I'm actually having second thoughts on the full re trim. 2 reasons, I look at my seats and they are beautiful, and secondly I can't find a leather close to cinnamon. All are either tooooo orange or toooo pale.

I'm now thinking retrim my spare rear seat and door cards to match the fronts. Alcantara and leather with double silver stitching. I would then do the dash trim, centre console, and door trims in silver carbon fibre to brighten it up?

Similar to this,




Not completely decided yet. Just a thought ( and a cheaper one).

Will be doing some shows this year for sure

To be honest do like them but car would end up looking the same as mandeeps car. Love his but not trying to replicate it.

Think it's unlikely I'd buy them as for me it takes it into a more modified look that I like but with this car my theme is more oem plus plus plus

Car looks amazing on those wheels.
I have no idea what wheels you're considering but I doubt any wheel could look as perfect under those arches.
As said not really the ones posted. Possibly a set of bbs chr,


Which would just look the same but cost me more. These are most likely but keep putting it off as they are so similar!

I see what you mean - cinnamon was definitely more 'tan' than 'orange' and now i'm older i find myself only looking at black for myself!

It's funny - I was looking at an M3 Alpine last night and liking the white stitching on the seats , if not the white painted on the lower centre console. But then I thought i could always wrap that if i grew tired of it...

I was arguing with myself that the M3 Edition would be a good buy over a standard car .. apart from maybe the Dakar

Saw this in the flesh the other day and even in the dark it looked stunning. That retrim will look amazing, in fact I prefer it to the cinnamon idea.

PS that extra connector was for the active head rests which can be coded out. Also the reason why I couldn't get the seat to work was because I didn't push the plug in lol what a fail.

Well, made up mind. Just pushed the button on these.

Keeping silver rim protector.



And organised 2 new rear contis.( not cheap) ( going to keep the front contis of current wheels as brand new)

Another month of spending then I'm definitely stopping spending!

Would not get away with that!

Benvalgen (sp) in holland. Cheapest I could find. Bbs prices have just gone up

Once wheels arrived will add stud conversion, new spacers with max poke, and new polarised wheel nuts.

Need to get stanced for early edition in 14th April.

Basically yes. You have a stud that the wheel goes on. The amount of stud sticking out depends on how cool you are!

Born in Motorsport, but now cool on the show ground !





I've got black studs and cool looking nuts ( oh err ) but similar to the above.

Not sure Nick. ( don't forget I have that helping hand you've paid for!).

Current thinking is keep them for winters/ or when I sell up stick them on and sell then bbs separately.

Tbh, they are nt going to look massively different. Just they will be bbs. Job done!

Ok cool, makes sense i guess as you will be able to get good money for your bbs when you re-sell.

Yea i need to get up to you and pick that up, ill try sort something.

Can you PM me how much you paid for your stud conversion and where from please mate.

Studs from demon tweeks and cost hundred quid. Iirc 75mm fronts and 90mm rear. Poke of studs will depend on wheels/ offset etc so will be trial and error.

I think they may be marginally cheaper from ca automotive but depends what size you want.

You can get cheap bolts from eBay but I wanted black ones with a 'nose' on the end.

Polarised bolts I bought separately. Will post some pics later in week.
