How did you program your car so that the amber lights (at the corner of lights) won't turn on at night.... I REALLY want to do it to my car also. =) THANKS!

You really give my fingers a workout scrolling through page 1 on my iPad. Very nice looking wheels and great pics! What camera are you using for these shots?

I'm thinking about swapping my OEM wheels and tires as well. 225 and 255 looks good. Could you have gone wider in the front and back or do you think there would be rubbing issues up front ?

Check the DIY section. The f30 cheat sheet will guide you through the module that contains the options to turn them off.

Pics taken with new iPhone 5.

Yes, you can go wider and be fine. Thinking 265 is just right in the rear, 235 in the front. You definitely won't have any rubbing issues if you stay at that size. May go that wide for my summer setup (obviously, that's assuming you have a 8.5inch wide front rim and 9.5inch rear).

Awesome set up. Are those the Avant Garde M359 wheels? Look very snappy with the Alpine White.

The best looking wheel rims period. I'm thinking of ordering the exact same ones as well. However I wanted to ask if there are any issues with rubbing? Or does the installation of the replicas require any mods to the suspension or any other area? Have you tried going through some rough tarmac or made any other testing?

I'm really looking forward to hearing from you.

Cheers

Wheels are BM160 ZCP M3 Replica's (full specs in my original post).

No issue's w/ rubbing, etc. No mods to suspension needed. ET38+ in rear and ET35+ front. Fit perfectly.

I should also note that I sold me OEM M Sport 19s and bought a second set of these for my summer setup. Love these wheels on the car. Put the stock OEM Runflat Summer tires on the second set.

They are called BM160's (M3 ZCP Replica Wheel). Essentially identical to the Avant Garde M359 Wheel except Avant Garde's are in a hyper silver vs. these which are in a Super Silver.

Would have preferred the Hyper Silver finish of teh Avant Garde's, but they no longer make a 8.5" Front and 9.5" Rear (only a 9" and a 10" size). Felt 9" in the front was a bit agressive.

Overall - very happy w/ them.

Just figured I'd give everyone an update on my winter setup (as I received a lot of heat from other forum members about going with a 19" staggered setup). Toronto has received a wide variety of "winter weather" over the last few weeks (everything from freezing rain, ice, slush, and snow dumps). I'm happy to report (knock on wood) that the car on the Blizzack LM-60's has been performing far better than expected. Compared to my previous car (2007 Infiniti g35 sport sedan rwd w a square 225 17" setup w snow tires), the 335 has performed exponentially better (not sure if this is simply because how the cars traction and throttle response works vs the Infiniti). Anyway... For others who have been on the fence, setup has maintained the aesthetic looks I was going for without compromising winter performance.

Missed this first time round, but nice pics! Thinking about doing these same ZCP reps in hyper black or gunmetal on my BSM.
