well I usually have the front windows because I like the breeze, but I got pulled over once for it at around 10:30 at night. It was some cop showing a rookie on how to do a write up. It took close to 20 min to just verify my info and write the ticket. On top of that they sent me to the wrong court and scribbled the expiration deadline... It's only a fix it ticket so don't worry about it even if you did. I drive with no front license plate and dark tints, and never got pulled over except for that one bs time. And I'm at 15% i believe, had it for almost 2 years its dark enough to give it a great look, but also light enough so I dont have to roll my windows down at night just to see

Huge improvement from what you started with. I am glad you got rid of those wheels.

Ps. You need a set of xenons/depo's and your ride will be pretty much done !

I know, it kills me not to have them. Someone donate a pair to me
The only thing holding me back from doing much more to the car is rumors in my family of selling it within the year for a MT 135i hopefully

thanks, I love the rims. They sit flush and don't rub at all, I really wanted the gunmetal but wasn't going to turn down a great deal I got on them.

I think if the rims were gloss black it would pop more. That's why i go back and forth because sometimes flat black rims on a black car just look ashy lol.
