    The Summer '14 look. Four Door Content.

    Just realized that I'm on my 7th set of wheels.

    I guess my Summer '14 look is starting to come together. Coming soon: a lot.

    Peep out the project thread for a bit of what is to come this summer.

    Overall - I've got to say I really like them. And love the lip. Need to polish them for a nice shine. :up:

    I was super close to picking up a set of Euroweaves but happy I didn't.
    I've already had Basketweaves and 16" Style 5s.

    Still need to put my cross bars for my bikes and surfboard back on.

    Front end will be lower as soon as I get around to installing the H&R M3 front springs.

    What does R3V think?

    And to save grace - proper shoot coming soon. After I take care of some more.

    And here is a song from the CD I found in my garage.
    I listened to it while installing the wheels and mudflaps the other day.
    Just thought I'd share.

        Agree. Not a huge fan of those wheels.

                Such an under-rated wheel. Looks great!

                    Thanks for the feedback guys.

                    The Style 5's were pretty fly for a white guy but they totally ruined my driving experience.

                    My shocks were blown, and was mounted on super soft Eibach Pro Kit springs - it was no bueno.

                    Like literally - couldn't take a gentle curve w/o major rubbing going down - and that was WITHOUT any passengers.

                    I would LOVE a set of properly fill-n-drilled style 5's (like the one guy who converted his DS 318is to a 320is in WA state).

                    But that would likely be a very expensive job. And I like these for now.
                    I'm going 5-lug at some point this year (I think) so these "will do" till then.

                    Style 10 is really growing on me, and love the simplicty of an OEM 4 lug BMW wheel.
                    I think they'll "pop" a little more once I repolish the lips and repair the very minor curbage on one wheel.

                          Hey Danny, not quite! ;)

                          I sold the Style 5's w/adapters and with the money, I installed some new Bilstein Sports all around with much stiffer H&R M3 Race springs.

                          All about fixing the problem, right? ;)

                          Haha I know there were 2 sets actually online when I got these. Got em' off a gentlemen who had them on an 02 that he bought, and that he had turned into a track car.

                              My kinda' look!

                              Style 10s and flaps! Nice to see you running these rims. Your Style 5s looked sweet too! Here's my look. I also still have the OEM 14in Basketweaves. I would love a set of EuroWeaves though someday as well.
