finally

Ok Guys. Finally posting a pic of my car. Quality isn't the greatest, so it'll have to do. Damn disposable camera quality here!!!!!!

1998 328i in Arctic Silver. Bone stock except for the wheels and a K&N drop in.

I know, I know.....you guys all think I should drop it. Not just yet....

Rico

Oh...and that's Fox - my co-driver.

Looking good Rico328!

If my 328i looked like that back then, I would've been so happy!

By the way, are those the 17" Mille Miglia MII-2 Special (Special application for BMWs)?

wheels

BTW. Yes they are the 17" Mille Miglia MII-2's wrapped in Kumho 712's - 235/40/17's.

Guess I'm going for the classic-stock look. For NOW.......

Nice!

Do the MII-2's feel heavy though compared to the stock rims?
How's the Kumho 712s? How's the tread wear and overall handling?

I think if you add all clear corners, it'll look even better, but nothing wrong with the classic-stock look

phantom wheel....

I just took another look at the first picture and you're all right. It does look like it's missing the front passenger wheel. Must have been the angle of the shot. Or the high quality disposable camera that I used!!? haha

No photoshop here boys. You saw the car Vlad. Thanks for speaking up.

BTW. When I first put the wheels on. They did feel slightly heavier than my stock wheels. But it's really hard to tell. We're talking a pound or two?! I think the rims weigh 22lbs each at that size.
