I don't have any pics of the car with the BMW performance suspension but this is from when I got the Pro-Kit installed.

M3 ZCP reps from Avant Garde called M355 I believe. 19x9 front and 19x10 rear with Michelin PSS. Love the setup!

They looked a bit like Apex ARC-8s or EC-7s. I have the ARC-8s.

I'm not usually a huge sticker fan X, but I'm digging it, brother! Maybe black out those front reflectors so they don't distract from the rest of the lines?

Very nice! These are the Eibach springs? I really like the ride height.

I hear you, dFan, all the webbed multispoke designs start blending together (mine included), but I dig the stock look of these ZCP wheels, and I've always been a huge fan of the arc-8s (hard to find a better weight/strength/price combo out there). I'm thinking about switching my wheels out to 19s with less aggressive offsets so I can run a beefier tire setup. The aesthetics are nice and all, but I much prefer function over fashion (or some combination there of like what you have going).

I love this interior color; I am dying to have a rich brown interior in one of my future cars so I can do a matching brown alcantara headliner. Any interest in an interior swap?

Has OSS figured out how to get them open without cutting them? I noticed Lightwerkz has figured this out. Also, mind me asking how much it cost you and what all you had done to them?

nah - they definitely cut them open -- but it is sealed up great -- dont see it having any issues. luis was great to work with and did a great job. as for price i think i tried to block that out of my memory but it was in the 700 range...

had the v4 rings (smoother appearance and brighter) -- eyebrows painted to match the gunmetal color of the bottom... and the chrome/everything else blacked out. the little led on the side that is normally amber was also replaced to be white....

OUCH! Well more times than not, things that look good and are done well usually tend to cost more. They do look excellent. Good color combo with your d.

btw, what wheels and sizes are those? they complement the d quite well.

The pics don't do justice to the color match. The match was perfect, though the pics I posted do seen to show different shades... It looks factory in person.
I bought the m3 front bumper/m3 side skirts combo off eBay, from a supplier who sells to modmy3 and several other websites.
And yes, the eibach pro-kit lowers 1.2", so I immediately ordered the BMWPS and it lowered the car approximately .5-.7", which looks much better to me. Surprisingly, on stock struts the eibach setup rode similar to factory sport suspension. I was impressed but hated the tuner look. :-)

My springs are for sale...
