    Wow, gorgeous car! I too prefer the RH wheels to the Schmidts, but I'm excited to see how those new wheels look when mounted up. Keep up the great work!

    Really liking this, M sport kit looks amazing, but for me personally theres far too much meat on those tyres, lower profile and less width needed, the RHs didn't stand out like they should have because of the huge rubber, as an example E39 style 32 wheels never looked good until they were put on an E36/E46 with stretched tyres.

    Yes totally true... this e39 eat 18'' especially with small centers/big lips...but now RH will be on one nice e46 328ci, they looks amazing at rear on e46.

    Something new is coming

    19'' Schmidt rims lips/barrels and BBS RT222/223 (Bmw Style 108 from Z4) centers will be bonded together into something very nice and rare...

    18'' Style 108 / BBS RT222/223 18x8




    Test probe onto lips for measuring (20bolts BBS fit directly on 40 holes Schmidt lips) only minor cutting of edges will be required..





    First setup will be 19x8,5 and 19x9,5 untill centers are 100% finished and ET is measured for E39.
    Plan is to buy new Radinox rear lips 4-4,5'' to be final setup 19x9,5 front and rear 19x10.5

    At the end should be like this (not mine pict..)







    and finish paint will be like this ones

    The car looks great .... for me the ideal e39.
    In addition, this multimedia station - the winner.
    In my opinion you need bigger lips at the front, so that the rotors fits just as good as on the back ..... but you already know that
