I may switch it up in the future, i didn't go with the red caps because the only authentic BBS caps that come in red has gold BBS lettering. I don't have anything thats gold on my car

What about getting a dark grey BBS logo engraved/painted on the chrome center caps?
The reason why I am stressing this is that there are too many LM reps with plain center caps.

LOL you are right, there are a lot of replica LM's on the market. I don't worry about that though, my set are real. They have the OEM BBS markings engraved on the face etc. I don't really stress about it too much. I like the Polished caps BTW they are OEM BBS as well.

I am a huge fan of the LMs!!!!
For some reason I preferred your car with the HRE's though It looked so aggressive!
But either way, your car is still beyond perfect the way it is now

Its just a matter of wheel preference.

I like the HRE's too, but ever since i owned them I knew they would be switched to LM's one day.

The LM's are actually a lot more aggressive in sizing compared to the HRE's. The fender modification makes the LM's look tucked

Thank you Shane! I couldn't pass up the chance to get the LM's on the car

Here is a video of the beast in action. Gives you all an idea of how the car sounds with my exhaust setup.

Be sure to change the vid quality to 1080P for best sound / picture. This video is not mine.

Car is really looking good. Aggressive enough and the sound is great! What's your set up again?

I love the rear fender work you did on your car. Do you mind if I ask how much your bodyshop charged you to do this?

Thanks in advance.

They are decent but they destroy strut mount bearings.
