Black M6 reps to match matte black wrap :D

Decided to get some new wheels to match the wrap on my car, so got in touch with a great fella called Raj working at Prestige Performance Cars in Essex, i think the website is ppcgb.com, they do all sorts of luxury cars etc.

Saw the website and it looked pretty good so decided to give them a call. The service was great as I have dealt with people from BMW themselves who could learn a thing or two from the people at ppc, and Raj knew what he was talking about and advised me and actually kept me updated the whole way which is a rare thing for salespeople to do.

He sorted me out with M6 replica wheels, Italian manufactured (not the cheap taiwan reps), sprayed them in gloss black and threw on some tyres, ended up getting a good deal and am really happy with them.

Anyone suggest what I should mod next?

+1. Why spend all that money getting the car looking that good to put cheap rubber on there and then lose it in the wet on a corner? A mate of mine put cheap tyres on his E92 330i, 2 months later he spun it on a roundabout in the rain and wrote it off

Car looks good though!

Car looks the business. Very striking and looks like an excellent job was done with the wrap.

Wow, it looks stunning, really liking it .

Can't make out the tyres you've got but the weather is shortly going to get really shitty and, for BMW drivers, that's bad news.

M6 reps are cool.

Haha good eye, and yes im sorry everybody they are fullruns.. but after three rear sets of 20 inch, 25 profile, 10J width vredestein sessanta costing 500-600 for 2, i've just gone budget.

The budget tyres really arent that bad, and I bought them because I started driving like a grandma recently because of a chronic ankle injury.
