Right on. Just curious is all. I do like the LTW wheels too, if I could find an authentic lightweight set I would jump on it for sure.

The wheels look hot, keep em. And on the grill being blacked out, I'd say go for it .

i'm probably the only one that thinks this.. but I prefer your new rims over your old m3 rims. I never did feel those rims... and way too common for an 'upgrade'.

blacked out grill?... meh.. I did mine black... and somewhat regret it. It takes away from the 'BMW' in a way... unless you're an enthusiast, or know bmw's... a lot of ppls wouldn't even recognize the car at night.

please change those mirrors.

Thank you for supporting me in the borbet decision : )

My girlfriend says the same thing about the grill. She says you would lose that trademark grill. But I don't know. I would like to have a set of black and chrome so I could interchange.

Thanks for the comments

And a shameless plug, those Hamann HM3's I have for sale would look sharp on your car. I loved them on mine, but the PSS9's were more important I guess. I dont have a thread for them but if interested send me a pm.

Unfortunately they aren't very light, 21lbs for a 17x7, 23.6 lbs for a 17x8. They are clean though, very simple.

I really like your car though, nice mods, no fluff.

Hmmm I had read 20.5 for the 17X8. Either way though thats not too bad really I dont think. Unless you go forged its not very easy to get much lighter
