    Plus it's far easier than navigating the speed bumps inside the compound. We generally get a house close to the gate at the bottom so it works well. Some nice roads down there as well, I had the pleasure of ragging Dotty's M2 around there. And shortly after bought an M140i.

    Finally got the 57DRs fitted with red Rays locking wheel nuts. Looks very aggressive now.

    Of course sir!

    I have some to show how far out they sit from the car but I'm too excited to take really nice ones right now. As soon as I do I'll post more.

    They look good. What's the ride like compared to the 20s?
    Also, what width and offset?

    They are 18x9.5 +38 on Eibach Pros, I was originally going to go for 255s but decided against it.

    The drive is heavily opinionated. I wouldn't say I'm a wizard in wheels, suspension, etc. so I'll just describe what I can and hopefully reasons for it will jump out and someone can chirp in or something.

    Originally, I used to drive on Sport, I wouldn't touch Comfort unless I wanted to cruise one handed down the motorway. Over time I just got used to the heaviness of the steering wheel on Sport and R.

    With the Eibachs it was a lot more planted and steering felt even better.

    Now with the wheel and tyre change I would say I would always set it to R, just to get the best feeling out of it. It does feel a little bouncy but I think that's down to the fact there's more tyre on the bumps. And the fact that it's a lot wider I'm just a lot more careful right now. When reversing you can see the rear tyre staring you down.

    So in a nutshell R mode now feels like the original Sport mode but with the benefits of R mode because of the tyres (presumably). Make sense?

    So my B pillars are looking terrible due to pre-wash getting under the clear coat and permanently staining it. I tried all the best water spot removers, polishes, but alas it was too late.. this looks like dirt but trust me its not



    so out of sight out of mind, I got these carbon style vinyls



    quite happy with them for now, match the lower skirt carbon. Have some for the rear door quarters, but already have a decal there
