yeh they do need to be darker to differentiate more from your body colour

Cheers mate! There's no link to it on their site and it took me a while to actually get through to them via email/facebook/e90post PMs and even calling internationally.

Nice pic. Love the front lip too. I presume they aren't making them anymore as their website doesn't show the image anymore....

You can still get the same 'style' lip from a few places now.

Much better fitment from the varrsoens but I wanted to give my fenders a break and go tuck for a bit.

Any idea if the following rims would fit on an E92?

Fronts 20x9.5 et 31
Rears 20x10.5 et 19

I'm guessing the front would be too agressive, and the rears would need some guard work?

Depends on what kind of look and fitment you're after. What someone thinks as aggressive may not be the same as someone else. Also depends on how much work you're willing to do to make wheels fit (eg fender mods - keeping in mind e92 fronts are plastic, rear camber arms etc...) and how drivable you want the car to be (ride height, stretch tyres). Best thing is to just use an offset calculator and compare your current wheels to the set up you want and figure out whether or not you will be ok with how much more they stick out.

Well the fronts wont match the rears in terms of aggressiveness. Your fronts will sit in further into your guard while your rears will be on the verge of flush and poke depending on your camber settings.

If you were to get these and not run alot of stretch, you would have to use 235/35s and 255/30s..

Cheers dude, that's the thing i don't want to have crazy stretched rubber and crazy camber which drastically affects handling and grip which is why i think this setup may be way too over the top
