The wheels are Alufelgen SF71's.
I imported them from on of Alufelgen's distributors in the States pre the group buy.
Offsets are ET35 all round with 235/35/19 & 275/35/19 tyres

Also are these snaps taken in West Sussex?
The normal offset of the wheels is ET35,but I was buggering around with some 5mm spacers to see if it would work.
It didn't,which came as no surprise,but these things need testing.

I prefer the 275's over the 265's,more rubber,more grip,but a real danger of aquaplaning when it rains very hard.

The pics were taken in Charlwood,Surrey,which is just down the road from me.

Missed this one.

The BMWP brakes certainly have their limitations,although day to day I find them comparable to the OEM's.
Track days are very different mind,and they have a tendency to overheat quite dramatically,and regular pit stops are needed to cool them off.

The Blackfire products are the best IMO,leave a fantastic finish which lasts for months.
I'd highly recommend Blackfire for dark cars,along with PB Black Hole

Thanks Carl.
Self inflicted recuperation time,I've been a poorly boy and decided the only way I was going to stop driving was to take the car away from me.

Your wheels are SF-71's not CS7's :P

When you've done lots of mods do you start loosing track on the specifics......

Check out my sig to the left, they are CS7's, the spokes don't go all the way to the outer rim like yours do.

Ian, sorry late to spot this thread, I love tastefully modded cars, and you're is absolutely perfect (could only be improved if the 'd' was an 'i' and a manual ).
