Summer Ready 2012 F30 Alpine White 20" Wheels in NYC

Soo although im already planning to switch it up for a X4 next year (Winter in NYC was brutal this year) I changed the wheels and added some M Perf style goodies for this summer.

The car is a Base 328i w/ Tech Package, Heated Seats and Sunroof
Alpine White w/ Black Leatherette
36.5K from dealer stock purchased 8/2012

Added

H&R Super Sport Springs (First day after install hope the front settles a bit)
20" Stance SC7 20x9 20x10.5 (sitting on stretched tires which I will get rid of with a proper set of coilovers)
M Performance Grill
M Sport Bumpers and Side Skirts
M Performance Diffuser, Lip, and Side Valances in Carbon Fiber
Carbon Fiber Rear Trunk Lip Spoiler
Straight Pipe Muffler (Hence ugly look) Need to upgrade ASAP
Black Roof Wrap
Black Vinyl overlays on Stock Emblems
Full Tint 30% on most of car and 50% on Windshield

Just about everything done to the car is fully reversible except bumpers, therefore come next year ill be looking for someone to trade Stock bumpers for these.

LOOKING TO BUY!!! *** USED set of Coilovers BC Racing or KW***

Since im planning on getting rid of the car hopefully before next summer I dont want to make the full investment on a new set and lose all the money, had the H&R for a year now but took them off for the winter and reinstalled now.

Hope you like it, open to suggestions/constructive criticism.

Chinese company I've dealt with before ... They may be on ebay already but I've had these since November waiting on install.... Good thing is they were actually a bit cheaper than the OEM M Performance stuff and the fit and quality is very good IMO .... Inbox me for the info if genuinely interested.
