Tyres fitted today, looking goooooood

Fingers crossed I'll get the car washed tomorrow, and the new wheels fitted - I refuse to fit them to a dirty car!

Not much of a picture at the moment - the wheels are all in the back of the car, carefully packed with old sheets and pieces of cardboard, and the car is filthy, sitting on the car park at work

Patience!

I wanted to get them sealed before I put them on, it was deliberate not to have him swap them for me

And they now have BMW centre caps, I didn't like the XTK ones either. Pics...

Looks Paul,very smart

I particularly like the black (front)/silver (rear) bolt theme going on,are you hoping to start a new trend?

You need some lockers Chap,I'd hate to see the car on bricks.

Defo needs a subtle lowering now for sure!

Eibach springs did the job on my M3, just enough to make a visual improvement without looking too silly!

Agree about the lockers, get some on it!

The wheels look better with the roundel centres also

Thanks

The black/silver bolt thing... when I bought the spacers they sent silver bolts with black caps because the black bolts were on back order for ages. The caps looked fine on the MV3s, but they look stupid with these wheels.

Black bolts are next on my list - along with some extended lockers if I can find some.

Teddy at SSDD supplied my spacers, longer bolts and longer lockers when I last purchased some - give him a try Paul

Parapaul, they look brilliant.
Do you think you should have gone for 19 inch CSLs?

No, even though the 19" CSLs look amazing, I've had 19s in the past, and the ride quality on them is just shocking. I knew I wanted to stick with 18s, and I'm pleased with how these look.
