Those look awfully familiar.

Time to go wheel shopping.

Oh sweet wheels, I assume those are 20".

How wide did you go?

I just have a funny feeling that they're 20x9 and 20x10. That's what I went with.

Looking at your mod list, it appears you bought everything Dinan spec-ed short of the tire sizes. So you are correct in your assumption that I too purchased the Dinan spec HRE wheels. My shop is an authorized Dinan dealer.

I noticed your tire size when you had your wheels posted for sale a while back. Why did you end up chosing such a small tire size setup?

Oh, and have you seen these yet? Dinan stage 4 announcement coming soon.

A better shot of the HRE P40SC wheels we plan to install on our F10. We hope to get them installed by the end of the month along with the suspension. Thanks for looking...

Haha. No war intended. :P
I think I had one of the first (if not the first) Stage 3 installs in the US. Figured I'd keep the trend rolling for Stage 4.

Joe - I'll call you tomorrow. Maybe we can work something out. My car is coming off the truck from the east coast in the morning. Happy to have her back.

Sounds good, we are happy to help. My stage 4 intercoolers arrive next week and we will detail the install in this thread. Tires finally ordered as well.

Car should come together quickly in the next 2 weeks. I'll have some more updates for you all.

I used Shell exclusively on the east coast. Will probably continue on this coast.

Yeah, I might have had a bad batch of gas.....I'm switching to shell v-power and see how that goes.
My Dinan dealer just told me he isn't sure now when the intercoolers will be arriving for install. How are u guys gaining access to them so soon?

I'm getting the intercoolers since my shop is a Dinan dealer and I requested a set on this next batch. They told me the intercoolers were already back ordered, but a new batch is arriving this week. I'll post pics when we get them in and installed.

Stage 4 Intercoolers arrived today, along with our Dinan badge. If you have interest in these parts or want to make your 550i an M5 contender, please follow along as we reach 540hp/590tq.
