Finally got my Rims on Forgestar F14 Gunmetal

Mods:

ACS Springs
Forgestar F14 20" Gunmetal (Bought from Cal@sonic)
Hankook Ventus V12
Painted M5 replica spoiler from JBspeed
3M Ceramic Tint

Mods sitting in my closet to lazy to install:

OEM Black Grills
Bimmian Painted Side Markers
Bimmian Matte Black 550xi rear emblems

Having second thoughts about installing the grills, I really like the looks of the grills that came with the car.

Congrat!

To be honest, I think black grill only looks good on White or Black car. I would stay with the original grill. 550 chrome/gray grill would look nice.

Looks good! and a perfect drop on my point of view. We hv a same taste bro. I ordered 20 inch. F14 Gloss gunmetal with Toyo Prox tire and ACS from Cal too. LOL I still got my ACS and eisenmann exhaust still sitting in my garage though. Next Tuesday is my appointment @ Autocouture motoring. I did image how these will be once installing, but you actually showed me everything. Thx bro. LOL

Black grill changes the entire car to more of an aggressive ride, a MUST for your F10 IMO

I'm feelin' the same. Luv 'em both even though I have the black grills. Maybe he could swap it out just for a change in 12 months.

I also like the tint. What is that ... ceramic?

Clean ride. I've been eyeing those F14's as they now introduced the super deep concave. How much did u pick up your rims and ACS springs as I'm looking for your set up?

Thanks
