I just wanted to share a pic of my new rims incase you didn't see it at the show. I want to thank Jasper (aka WASABI) for the great deal and his help. Great guy to deal with *th-up* *th-up*

looks nice, but i dont think the rims suit the car, maybe black rims or something, or something with a polished look, but other then that the car looks pimp man.,..

You're welcome Jeremy, I'm just glad that we got those bolts out. Pics don't do the car justice, very tasteful mods, great job !

black and polished are overdone. i like the contrast.

Thanks guys.

No problem Furious; sorry I had to leave quickly. It's a little getto but at least it gets the job done. I think this winter I'm going to make up a bracket or something to make it better. If I come across something, I'll let you know. Cheers.

Brakes are next in line :)

BMW 7, got the OEM M3 clears for the rear and smoke corners for the front. However, I decided the amber up front is better (I like the contrast); plus I'm tired of seeing them on every car. The rears I agree. switching to striaght clear is way beter than BMW's design of spliting the clear/amber.

97M3/4, I don't take my car out much - only nice weekends around the south end of KW and sometimes I take a back road drive on a nice day to Hamilton (to work). It's also stored from Nov. 1st to May 1st for winter. We should set up a KW meet or something. I think there are a couple others interested.

Justin, I only used thick (strong) tie-straps and it works like a charm. I was not please with VIS's response to the problem. They said "just make up a bracket" and "don't worry about it, just leave it loose like everyone else". I will try to get a pic or two this weekend for you.
