Are your rear fenders shaved? I'm wondering if I can get away with a 275 in the rear, I have 219's hiding in my backyard.

much appreciated, Alen! i've learned the hard way with a few of my decisions in the past and hopefully spending a little extra time, $$$ and research will help in the long run.

thanks, dawg. i threw a few easter egg randomness hoping that someone would notice, lol. having ZSP is nice and i'm glad my steering wheel didn't come with the silver/brushed aluminum accents. you can always upgrade to a ZSP or M3 steering wheel!!

yup, still have the walnut trim in my lower living room still wrapped in brushed titanium vinyl. the driver's piece is cracked and needs to be replaced though.

no, but i do plan on getting the rear fenders rolled in the spring. you may be able to fit 275's depending on the sidewall and tire brand.

it was damaged when i tried prying it off the door the first time before the wrap. didn't realize it cracked in half until i took it off the door AFTER the wrap

Well done! Looks great! And the style 219 wheels looks much better on your car than the LM's.

BTW is that stain on the cheerleader real or PS'd? Lol.
