Is there any difference between the BBS rims and the BMW ones? They look the same, but looks can be deceiving. May I also ask wha the purpose is for the spacers? Are they for effect, or are they necessary with the style of rim?

Those wheels pictured in the first post are when I first got the car. They are the stock OEM BMW style 166s.

This is how the car sits now with the LMs:

Nice Job ! Love the blue..

I also have an 08 6-speed, grey though - blue is very hard to find.

I especially like the front lip, may I ask where you got it ?

Thanks,

Dan

Thanks Dan. Search for "E60 M5 H style One Piece Lip" on google / ebay. That's where I got mine.
