2012 528xi....aw/cinnamin brown guts.

whats up fello bimmers....just picked up my first bmw and i love it..
maybe because im comming from a offroad jeep wrangler...lol...im planning some mods and wanted some input from the experts on here
im looking into some 19" m5 343 replica wheels from new m5...from **********s.com. are these rims gunmetal or plain silver??
im not really looking to spend so much money on rims, the streets here in nyc suck.
what do u guys think about that?? what tires and sizes should i wrap them in???
i will post pics of car when i get home from job.

If you're fixed on getting them from **********, work with Alan Wei. He'll give you the tire sizing, offset, etc.

On a white car, I would go with Matt Black or Gun Metal. Congrats, the N20 engine has potential.

I would work with Alan (**********) for those, he's very knowledgeable about the F10s. I'm sure you can find them on eBay, but the quality might be questionable. If you get bigger wheels, a drop is mandatory.

Sweet ride Ram. I think gun metal would look really sharp.

One of the best mods to start off with in my opinion is painted reflectors. Surprisingly it makes a big difference aesthetically.
