lovely car, thanks for the pics.
I have a luxury line on order and can still change my order to add sports seats.
When I did a test drive I didn't find the regular seats uncomfortable (but that was only for a short ride) any particular reason you regret not getting the sports seats?

Although I haven't been on a long drive yet I think that the extendable thigh support sport seats would have been useful.

After a quick wash

Was too hot and I was too lazy to grab the "big" camera... so more iPhone shots.

Hey Kaz,

Any Mods planned out?

What about that tint shop? I told Harry you would call him and asked him to give you the best rate possible.

Got my M5 Reps today!!!

This morning I picked up the M5 reps for my F30 from Simply Tire. I would highly recommend going in and seeing Allen. He's a pretty cool guy and really knows how to keep his customers satisfied.

Specs:
8.5 x 19 Front ET 35 with 225/40/19
9.5 x 19 Rear ET 38 with 255/35/19
Tires are Hankook Ventus V12 evo K110

It's not a really aggressive setup like some others but I like it... and that's all that matters.
However I am thinking about the drop and I don't want to do just springs so will need to wait for coilover kit.

In front of Simply Tire!


Lots of clearance here... no rubbing in my future.


I LOVE these wheels!!!


Dusk shot


Once I get her washed on the weekend I'll finally take some better pics with the DSLR.
Thanks to those that helped with the wheel and tire decision... you know who you are.

Should lower it with HR sport springs. Beside looks, car handles better as well.

Thanks Bosz... I think Maz is organizing something as we speak. When do you get your car?

Yeah I'm on the stock suspension.

Thanks Frontosa, Allen gave me a great deal and it was <$3000 for everything. No they're not RFTs

Thanks I love these M5/M6 wheels especially the rears they look really sharp.
I had a two people yesterday who asked me if my car was the new "sport 5 series" obviously meaning M5 and I said no it's a 3 series.

I'm going to keep the OEM wheels/tires for use as my "winters" for now.

I see. I guess you don't carry a spare tire in the trunk then.

What are you going to do with the all season tires? Are you replacing them with winter tires and put them on the original rims


Btw, how much was it back then if you had upgraded to the sports seats.

Absolutely stunning! Beautiful car, but IMO the Luxury Line looks best with the original 18" luxury line rims. You should not have change! ;-)
