... would be soon upgrading to 18 inch tyres a

With 18 incher, it would look good, but ride would deteriorate further. The run flats already make the ride harsh. Switch over to regular tubeless asap.

LOL. Ah, well, we couldn't catch hold of your on subsequent meets, else by now, I'm sure you'd have also been active participant in such discussions.

Nevertheless, any updates on the fuel economy? Is it still giving supercar like economy?

Default Why not BMW Performance

Original BMW accessories : BMW Performance

I was looking at your white 3er, I was wondering what a Genuine BMW Performance car would look like in flesh.

I'd love to see the CF rear spoiler, the accent strips, the front scoops, black grille & performance alloys. Did you check the performance accessories yet?

I have already ordered body colored rear spoiler and the matt black grill same as the m3.

More suggestions requested.

Please help me choose decent alloy wheels.

I'll agree with sahil's choice. It would look awsome in gloss black or better still if could be found in gun metal finish.

If you are talking about the one below the spinner(BBS kinda), even I give it a . And once blacked out, I'd be salivating!

BTW what is that ugly thing, 2nd from left in the lowest row?! makes me feel like throwing up! Might be giving a different effect while spinning, maybe.
