My new shoes... Alufelgen SF-71 in Hyper Black

Just got the new rims installed last night.

Sorry for the crappy pic but took it with my Pre and it was overcast and rainy.

And yes I know I need a drop now. Any suggestions for the best spring, spring/shock, or coilover solution that won't cost me a fortune and isn't too harsh to ride on up here in the NW? Looking to buy a house soon and not trying to waste too much of my down payment on the ride. Also, any good shops for installation with decent prices for this in the Tacoma area? I know most of you people live up north and have places up there but that isn't very convenient for me as I live in south Tacoma.

Looking good, you might want to ask either James or Peter about the shop. Since they both done so many mods on their car, so they might have some hook up deal at the Tacoma area.

I had very little wait at all on the wheels. I ordered at the very end of the groupbuy on January 18th. I think the company received the first batch of wheels from overseas on Thursday the 21st. They shipped out all of the groupbuy wheels on the Mon the 25th and Fedex attempted first delivery to my house on Mon Feb 1st, so it was good time. Fedex sucks though and you can read my story about it here:

However, I've been told they switched over to UPS now though cuz I think other people had issues with Fedex as well.

I believe that they received more wheels than the groupbuy amount so they are stocking them so if you were to buy now the processing and shipping time should be pretty quick as well, but you'll have to confirm that with them. Wheeladdicts is selling the rims as well.

I installed my own coilovers and I do all my own installs so I couldnt comment on any shops around here that work on BMWs.

Nice. Get it lowered and update us. Definitely a clean ride.
