Look forward to seeing pics with the Rials on. I am planning to get the same setup for our winter tires.

and, finished product:

Beautiful.
What is the source of black tips and gray reflectors?

Great upgrades! Congrats!
On the other hand, you can't compare the exhaust tips from a v8 car vs a 4 cyl. one
650i has great exhaust tips too

Thanks. This car cost within $10k of my Merc even though it has half the cylinders. Funny how "Mercedes" means the best or the priciest; I found that it was a better value than the Audi's and BMW's I cross-shopped in 2010.

I didn't get around to putting the wheels on last night so here's a quick teaser shot.

very happy. inexpensive, made in Germany, hubcentric and accept BMW center caps. Perfect for a spare set. If they made a staggered set, we might have put the stock rubber on these and used the OEM wheels for winter instead.

I really like that wheel color on EB. If I go to 19's, that's the finish I am going with.

yeah....I was wondering with such a strong hue but it really works well. I had anthracite Prodrive's on both my red STI and slate blue Legacy GT wagon and it worked with them too.

Small world (kind of). I bought your BBS Wheels on the Mercedes =). I'm considering selling the C350 Coupe for a 328i M right now. I just need to convince myself to move onto a Sedan (have always favored coupe and no kids). I wish they would just officially announce the 428i.

For rough comparison, if you don't mind me asking, what are you paying to lease a 328i M Package?

not sure...we bought it. I think the lease was $650/mo but I know that wasn't with good numbers....the finance mgr through that out but I think he wasn't being accurate. I think sticker on this car was $52k and we paid $48k.

The Benz got traded on my SRT8 in June.

PS - it IS a small world. LOL

[quote=PGT;12791965]No, the black tips are from any BMW dealer. The P/N is shown on the first pic I posted. You need Qty 2. Install is fairly easy...they have metal tabs inside that act like springs to hold them tight, ending in pointed tips. Shoot some WD40 in from the back side and yank. I did spend $25 for a slide hammer from Amazon. This made a big difference as they need a quick jerk to release those points.


I went to BMW of sterling about a week ago to buy the black tip but the parts person couldn't find that parts. Could you type the p/n out for me? Do you remember how much it was for each? Was it classified as black chrome tip? Thanks!!

Great car and colour, how did you remove the rear exhaust tips?, I have looked under the rear and they look spot welded to the exhausts

I posted that info above. They slide on. They have tabs and points inside.... Some WD40 and a slide hammer are your friends here.

Thanks for the pics of the Rials PGT. I am trying to decide on either the silver or anthacrite on my EBII. Is there any way we can get more pics of your setup in direct sun?

For arguments sake I photoshopped your image to mimic the silver color:
