Help me decide my next mod!

hey guys
so i've always really wanted to put a pair of HRE p40s on my car and finally have the means to do so! Im super excited!
however now that the moment has come to pull the trigger, im really questioning myself just cause of how much money those damn wheels are compare to everything else on the market!

i was hoping to get your guys opinion, given my current mods, if i should pull the trigger on the wheels or other upgrades..

Current Mods:
AST 5100 with swift spring conversion
M3 camber plates
M3 sway bars
AFE stage 2 intake
AR design catless dp
Remus Race exhaust
Jp4

Car is still sitting on stock 18'' rims, but has sticky rubber.

Personally, I could never justify that much money for the rims. However, its your car and if you like them, go for it.

If I spend thousands on rims alone, I want people to know. I feel that with the P40's, nobody would know the difference between the HRE and the knock off brands. It is easier to notice high quality wheels when they are 2 or 3 piece forged.

If you just want to show off how much money you spent just attach a blown up copy of the receipt on your window, better yet, leave the dealer's window sticker on your car. That would really impress the po' folks, except for the people with actually more money than you

+1 on Morr's. I loved my Signature Black. Keep the stock 18's with sticky rubber for the track and use the new wheels as daily drivers. The next power mod would definitly be methanol injection (best bang for the buck mod). What about some show for the go mods? Mtech perhaps?
