My M235i - MG/Coral

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
Just picked up my 2016 M235i - Mineral Gray/ Coral, Tech & HK
So far just tint (38% all around), Dual Slat Gloss Black Grills and smoked reflectors.
Just threw on some 403M wheels today. What are your thoughts?
Future mods - Lightweight lip, Autoplus diffuser...
What are my options for carrying 32oz (Hydro Flask) bottle? Anyone have front or rear cup holder mod?
Thanks in advance...

Very nice. What did you do with stock wheels? Where did you get the new one?

I still have em. Might consider selling them. It's Orbit grey. Not a big a fan of dark wheels but it didn't look bad on this car.
I got the 403m off Craigslist...the were in near perfect condition. I think under 1k miles if i remember correctly.

Thanks for all the positive feedback.
What are your thoughts on the ride height?
Also having some trouble with the TMS. Not reading tire pressure. Are the 2016's different?

To me the ride height is fine, I personally wouldnt want it any lower.

Others will tell you to throw $ at it to lower it a 1/4 inch...

Not usually a fan of CR, but it's just gorgeous here with the MG. Almost makes me wish I had gone with CR instead of Terra!

Was hesitant to go with CR but I'm glad I did. Terra and Oyster was on my list too.

I have the Orbit Grey/Red combo with the dark grey wheels. I didn't really like them at first but they've grown on me. The car is all grey'd out...paint, wheels, rear diffuser. Also hides the brake dust better.

True...I just wish they were bigger. They were starting to grow on me too.

Not sure what you mean?
They just happen to be the tires that came with the wheels.
They came off a F30 M-sport.
