I'm still waiting for my cic cables to arrive so i can finish my CIC retrofit lol, In the meantime i've had a look at retrofit paddles shifters on the steering wheel, I would need to buy the whole steering wheel, but it seems almost impossible to find one atm.

Something like this

I recommend a nice set of 18's. 19's even tho they look great, the ride quality is really poor, plus 19's can be prone to cracking due to having such a thin side wall. GTC are essentially VMR reps, I've heard they are even made in the same factory.

I'd go 18x9 with 245/35R18 or 235/40R18 square setup (aka same width front and back) on a 320d. Nice and light and keeps the understeer away too.

So is VMR better? GTC seems to be what eurodivision and BMR are selling so I thought they'll be good.

I'm not saying there aren't good, from what I've heard they are just re-badged VMR's. GTC is actually part of VMR (Same company). So in theory its the same wheel, same manufacturing process. Should be exactly like VMR's

Hey! All good so far. Nothing wrong at all. Plus k&n has a warranty on it. It wouldn't affect the car's warranty so am pretty sure nothing gonna happen. Love it because it actually does feel better as I've got the power kit.
