Yes! This is what I have decided on, as well. Plus I finally got a new job, thank God, so I will hopefully be able to get them this summer!

Damn you must have gone through some dough! But yes I do agree, they look exceptional! They have sneaked quite a few member's cars on there

That's Pakman's car, isn't it? I swear every time I see a SGM E90 with new wheels, it's always his. He's had just about everything on it. And it always looks badass

Not too much dough as I got great deals on my wheels, so most of them I barely lost any cash on the wheels, but rather spent a TON of mounting and unmounting of the tires.

But in the end I couldn't be happier with the 701's

I had to run EXTREMELY agressive rims to fit. The problem with the m3 front end is that you can go outwards more but the inside fenders are still very limited. So if your going to go agressive you have to take into account not just wider tires/rims but it may be a problem on other areas.

245/35/19 - 8.5 et 15mm rims + 10mm spacers = et 5mm in the fronts
265/30/19 - 9.5 et 20mm rims on the rears

The tires fill up the fenders nicely but it does rub at 100% turned. If I went with 235/35/19 it would fit fine I believe but it doesnt fill in the fender at all which I will have to lower my car even more to adjust which i didnt want to do.

I'm using the oem muffler 328I muffler and just made the right tip goto my left side mtech with Cyba tips. The right tip curves and goes above the other one and out onto the right side mtech. I love the look + I get to keep the stock sound (lack off) which is my intention!

Way to throw off poor drivers trying to figure out what it is from the front, back, AND sides

That's actually pretty low in the front, already. I know they must protrude a lot to fill up the fenders aggressively, with the spacers. The rear still looks like its got some space though.

Yeah lmao. 335? No? M3? No? Hybrid? Maybe?

That looks like Kriston's batmobile next to yours, as well. I've seen that thing all over this forum

I had Work Emotion CR Kai's on an old car and they came with all the blue stickers separately so you could put them on if you wanted.
dcorn is correct with the brand and the model of the rim printed on the wheels. The blue insert and the branding came applied on the wheels when I got them. I believe they are actually painted on the wheels.

Im doing a rather large cosmetic project right now on my sparkling graphite e90. This includes painting a set of Racing Hart F10 evolutions 19x10 et 45 rear and 19x 8.5 et 30up front matte black and covering the hood, roof, and trunk in matte black 3m. Grille and window trim are also being replaced with matte black. Its gonna take a while for it to be finished but I dropped the wheels off to be painted this morning and the 3m gets put on thursday. Ill be sure to post pics as to how it looks but the image in my head looks good!
