been a while havent updated the thread, OZ will be off for winter, and something in 18s will be on for Winters!

Also the Blueflame / MVsport exhaust system been fitted onto the car, loving the deeper note at low rpm, and the different note under heavy acceleration.

Very nice! Did you put those rear spacers in yet?

Not a common choice of wheel, the 'leggeras, but good to see something different!

Thanks

Yes, I have already got some 15mm spacers, looks like i might need some 20mm instead? the wheels are ET44 between.

For the wheels, it may not be everyone's taste, but couldn't fault with its quality and weight, plus i have been wanting a set for a long long time.

Better looking tips than the oem version, will be doing something similar when the makers warranty has ended.

Yes, extended warranties always spark-off a healthy debate. I'll definitely be taking out an AUC warranty after the makers warranty expires.

My advice is - if you can afford to take it out then it's a no brainer. These cars are so damm expensive to repair when they go wrong.

I cannot agree more on this, unless i am going to mod it a lot, otherwise will just sticking with it when renewal.

Winters are now on the car

The ride is much better than the 19s with p zero nero.

Wheels were bought from Mark @ BM autosport, 359 Style staggered.

Do they not do 9J? It would be nice to have them staggered, and apart from for looks it will help hold down the power on the road with a wider tyre.

They do have staggered rear, but i bought them as 2nd hand as a square set up. I think i will swap my set if i see a staggered set around

Love the colour! Id take red over my black e91 any day! Always been a fan of oz supers and ultras aswel!

Never thought of putting a set on the 3 series!

Good choice on winter wheels as well! Seems we have similar taste!

Thanks matey

I have been a fan of the those OZ, couldnt get a set of the old golf 1.8T, so must get one for the e91

I haven't seen a lot of 18s 359 style around, most of them are 19s, thought i might give it a go as my winters. It turns out to be better than i expect

give us update when you fitted the 18s motorsport wheels, i think they will suit well on e91.

WSP Italy

I'm thinking about importing a set of your 359 reps (made by WSP Italy) in 18" from Mark to the USA. I have some practically new tires from my stock 18's that I want to use and I'm getting tired of the ride quality with my 19's. I like the fact that they match the factory widths exactly. The offsets pretty much match, too.

What do you think about the quality of the finish? They seem great! I've been reading about WSP Italy and they seem like a high quality outfit. Any other comments about them would be appreciated. Any more pics?

Thanks!
J.

I dont think mine are from WSP , but still good quality! are you looking for 8j front and 8.5 J rear ? i think they should look great. mine are 8 J front and 9J rear, i got some photos on my pc could send it over to you if you want ?

since you're at the states, i have found the ag359 is much cheaper over your side, or set of Alufelgen ?

hth

cheers
