My 2008 328I with Gun Metal Grey CSLs

I picked up a set of these from a friend of mine (Synkicategt) for a pretty reasonable price. After making it back from deployment, it was time to get the tires on. The wheels are 19" M3 CSLs staggered 8.5 front, 9.5 rear with Continental Extreme Contact DWS rubber, and yes they are the real deal, not replicas. Up front I mounted 245/35/19 and 275/30/19 on the rear and they fit perfect with no rubbing of any kind. Here are a few pictures of my girl with her new shoes. I have other plans, but only as time and money allow but am happy for now. In the pictures, I know there are dead bugs on the bumper...I just put the live ones on order this morning Honestly though, I didn't see the need in washing since it's going in the shop on Monday for a week long passenger side and trunk respray from where some @ss and his key decided to play Scribble Nauts in a few places. Anyway, hope you all like the way it looks. Being a Hillbilly, I figured it would be fitting these photos be in the fields. Also, the three HDR photos are taken just outside a WWII bunker on Beale AFB where I'm stationed, so enjoy. Any feedback is more than welcome, thanks!

All you need now are some euro projector headlights, and your car would be epic!

Thank you JL! Those are in the plans along with a lip, maybe a drop, muffler delete, and a couple other small things but over all just trying to keep it clean and simple. Thanks again!

wheels look awesome. My only gripe is that you didnt use a low enough ISO on the HDR to get better contrast. nice ride.

I can live with that lol! I used ISO 100 on all three shots to make the one photo, but during processing I bumped back the contrast just a touch, perhaps too much, thanks a lot for comments always appreciated on both photos and the car!

Thank you very much, glad you like the first few. They are HDR (High Dynamic Range) each one is made taking three shots of different F stops and combined in a program to bring out all detail, a lot of fun to play with. Thanks again!

I've thought about throwing some springs under her, maybe an inch. As for the Blacklines, they do look pretty tight so may add those to my growing list lol. Thank you for complement and suggestions. As for the service, my pleasure!
