Thanks everyone! Yep love the LM's. I'll post a few more pics soon.

To answer questions...suspension is KW Variant 2.

Thanks Gustav...I have the black/silver BBS center caps too, so I can always swap them. I am thinking of doing something custom for a black/red themed BBS center cap.

I'll be selling my previous set of wheels, they are 19" x 10" rear and 19" x 8.5" front VMR CSL's hyper black/gunmetal.

Kelleyo, I do plan on going to the cars and coffee meet, hope to see ya there.

Also, I do plan on going to AngieFest again this year, good times...

Looks good, but I'd change the red center caps. They draw your attention more to the wheels and away from the whole car. In my opinion, the point of putting aftermarket wheels on a car is to enhance the appearance of the car as a whole without the wheels themselves being too gaudy or "in your face". I'm not saying that the red center caps are like that; I just think the black ones would work better with the look you're going for.

Snap 'em in and take some pics!

Yep, the main thing I don't like about the center caps is the gold BBS logo, that's why I'm most likely going to do something custom to achieve a black/red theme center cap, like gloss black background with red BBS lettering.

I got some good pics the other day showing the black roof and the LM's, will post them soon.
