They're perfect. Only complaint is that from the driver seat angle you can see slight imperfections in the crevice. That being said it could have been from when they painted them so take it with a grain of salt.

Assuming 19" VMRs what's your tire size you're running?

Those are most def. 19" . I have the same exact gun metal wheels but in 18" and looking at these pictures makes wish I would have gotten the 19s instead.

yes im in a similar boat but haven't bought yet. Had the V710s on my 135i in 18" and loved them but for the 2er they seem a bit small. 19's def look better but do I wanna pay the extra for wheels and tires... debating.

The wrapped strut behind the grill gives a very agressive look... I like it !

Any performance figure with your setup ?

Not currently. I did a dyno pull previously before the turbo and was around 360/375 hp/tq. that being said it was a hot day with heat sink. Hopefully after I have my new clutch in and can make full boost I'll dunk again. Very excited for that.

LOVE that wrap!

My personal taste is that it looks great on everything except the mirrors and rear lip.. probably because I think it better accents the ground effects.

Looks a little more orange than red though, is that the camera or is it how it looks in real life?

I'm still deciding actually if I like it but that's what's good about the wrap it's super easy to remove. The mirrors are probably what I'm most unsure about.

In person they are red with the kind of exception of the brakes and the struts behind the grill which are red but are reflective which looks orange when they reflect light, which you can see in a few of the shots.

Love the way the build looks thus far!

Have thought about doing the 550i clutch upgrade instead? It's a bolt on upgrade and I think it will hold the power for the PS2 turbo.

I have considered it but decided to go with the clutch masters clutch instead. Based off of a recommendation from a friend. There's always time for the 550 clutch when I'm done with this one possibly!

The clutch masters probably could hold power much better but I'd imagine the 550 clutch might be easier to daily drive with. Also I think the kit is much cheaper.

Yeah I've heard the kit OEM for ours is crazy expensive. The clutchmasters one with aluminum flywheel and self adjusting clutch was like 1600.

And this one is rated for 590 HP. Optimistic but rather be safe and get something grippy. That being said I'm a rather aggressive driver so I'm excited and wanted more racy than easy :-p
