Finally pics with new rims
 
Finally had the chance after moving back to school to give the ride a nice wash and put on the second coat of wax (almost 3 weeks after I was supposed to). But either way, it was nice and shiny in the sun. Wanna thank racingBM for a great deal on the rims and Mystikal for the rear tires.
It was rediculously bright and the reflection of the gravel road on the freshly waxed car makes it look dirty, but they still turned out pretty good.

Rims look good! Next time before photo shoot hit up the tires with some wet'n'black or something it'll make it look that much better.

lol, well I am going to be driving it during the winter and I plan on getting a M3 front bumper so I'm not really wanting to be my own snow plow.

Yeah, they were nice and clean when I started out, but in order to get to that secluded pumpkin patch/corn field (look closely in some of the pics) I have to drive down a bunch of gravel roads. lol

what he said! ^^^ its off to a good start tho!

Dysantic 09-17-2008 11:34 PM

I dunno. I just never really had the urge to drop the car. I don't have a problem with the stock suspension. The tires on my car now will only last me another month or so, so I will be buying new ones next summer.

There is also a problem with the rear passenger side where the fender isn't shaped properly and actually rubs against the tire with the stock suspension when there are too many people in the car. So me dropping it would make it perma rub. I'm not really sure how to fix it, but its just another reason to not drop it. lol

just roll them out!

Dysantic 09-18-2008 07:14 PM

^^^ I'm not completely sure how to. I've heard of fender rolling before, but have no idea how I would go about doing it myself. I've read that you can use a baseball bat, but I'd be scared to break something. lol

go to bimmersport in missisauga, 40 bucks per fender, done with the proper tool so it doesn't look retarded. do it up. I'm goin next week to get my rear fenders done.
