New wheels fitted today

CS Performance 359 reps from BM Autosport. The quality is spot on.

What do you think? For me it needs lowering and I think when the winter MV3's go on I'll be having these painted a a shade or 2 darker or maybe I'll get used to the colour. I'm not sure about the black grilles with the wheels so bright. Spacers wouldn't go a miss either, front and rear.











Trying different stuff on PS again last night and came up with this, I'm tempted to have it done.

Thanks Shrink.

Sorry for the full link, on phone now. I went for the 8.5" ET34 and 9.5" ET37. They'd go straight on a pre LCI but the ET37's on the rear would be tucked in 8mm more on each side. ET23 might be too much but spacers on the 37's would be fine.

The wheels are mint mate. Great choice! They look nice in that colour but they mite lookeven better just a tad darker. Get some coilovers on there and wind it down!!!! Im not usually a fan of the dual exit exhaust apart from the 335 but those pipes youve added do look really good!

car looks sick on these wheels.
It will look better if you drop it.
Rear conversion is ugly, go for the one which you edited previously.
Quad exhuast all the way.

I think that the car looks great as it is. Personally I wouldn't bother lowering it, the gap in the front wheel arch isn't large at all compared to some cars I've seen with factory fit suspension.

Gotta admit I like it too! It's cool, but not obviously repping a 335.

Thanks for the replies . As many of you have said on here, the ride is no different if not better on 19's and without runflats. It feels smoother and less crashy through the wheel when turning as well, there must be more give in the sidewalls or something. Glad some of you like the exhaust idea. It'd be difficult to do I think as I'd want the trims to follow the same profile as the rear of the car (like the standars twins do - outer one shorter than inner one) and not stick out square.

Not bad, though not as concave as original ZCP 359m or AG M359s.

Drop it!

Looks good but the car looks much higher in the first pic than in the other ones where its side on.

If the top one is more representative of what you see 99% of the time, then yes it needs a drop. If the side on shots are more true to life, then it looks good imho.

I agree. It's actually pointing uphill on the first photo which is why I think the front is up

There not as concave but the photos don't do them justice and they're not 10". I'll try and get a better one to show it.

Looks spot on as is. No need for lowering or spacers imo.

The PS looks good. I'd get that done.

How much were the wheels all in?
