Seriously though, if I sell my current wheels for a decent amount and add the difference, it won't be so bad. I'm definitely not interested in buying a brand new set of LM's. My 22" reps from my X5 sold for a fair price, so I'm not expecting to lose much when I sell these Avant Garde's.
Hey per our conversation, I might be interested

I knew you wouldn't be able to help yourself. It was only a matter of time before you "lipped up" like the rest of us.

I used Philips silver vision bulbs. Probably the cheapest mod that yielded the most satisfaction!

The rocker panel decals are meant to be paired with the side skirt extensions. It's all one cohesive M-Performance look...........front splitter, rear diffuser, side skirt extensions, side skirt rocker panel vinyl strips, black grills and CF trunk spoiler (..and of course the MPPK, M Performance exhaust, M Performance brakes and the wheels).

The black panel thing you're seeing is a vinyl sticker that runs along the contour of the M Sport side skirt. The full M-Perf kit consists of 3 part numbers for the side skirts. 1) the sticker and 2) rocker panel attachments, one part number for each side. So yes, they are physical black attachments that rivet onto the bottom of your side skirts. If you look at the Studie Japan car photo I posted, they painted theirs white. Hope that helps.

Yup, the first set of photos was at the Southern California Institute of Architecture on 3rd.

Hey Sedan I know you are going back and forth on this. I have absolutely no regrets! If proper install with bleed, coding, pedal feel, no noise is a concern, my tech that installed it at Irvine BMW is top notch. Perfect install. It'll look so good behind your wheels!!!
I did it today! I'm part of the M-Performance brake crew now.

Presario does BBS sell the black version like the studie Japan f30 stateside? You can powder coat yours would match the lip more. Don't get me wrong its super clean as is. Would be more aggressive/sporty with black LM + carbon fiber side mirror caps.
