LOL at least the PSNI go to the bother. Over here it's a Chav's charter for all sorts of unlikely spacing and more screws than the Playboy Mansion.

Welcome to the forum Aaron.

I may be interested in the current alloys if you are selling

Instead of light tints, may I suggest blacklines?

Haha got it in one mate, its my own personal plate, used to look like this on my old Astra, until i got tortured by the cops, so had to change it. I may put it back as my name on the BM

Courier to send wheels from NI to England / Scotland / Wales is no problem, I have done it in both directions several times, think its about 40 to 50 for the set. Paisley Freight are the courier I used .

Cheers mate, you probably will see me around Belfast as im up there quite a bit with work, my office is out at Stranmillis.

I know the BMs are quite a change from Vauxhall, ive had 3 new shape astras and a golf, so this is my first big car, being honest i was kinda worried as im only 22, moving away from 3door cars that im used to, to a big saloon (hense me sporting it up a bit with spoilers and wheels)

Not sure what wheels to go for, i'd love a set of 19s for it as it would look very pimp Looking out on Gumtree and ebay atm for anything nice in 19 inch

There are a few sets of 19" MV4 advertised on here for pretty decent money, suit the car really well.

No the wheels are in England but a few quid gets them over here, finding decent wheels in NI at decent money will be tricky unless you are buying new.

Are the wheels replicas or genuine? Not sure the offsets on genuine M3 wheels suit an e90.

Nice ride and list of mods.

Instead of tinted lights can I suggest Black Lines or go for the full Red Lights. Either approach will look great on Carbon Black.
