I think three or four jpegs would've been more effective at communicating the change here than your 13 minute self indulgent video.

I also think they probably look great. Because contrasted color Apexes always look great on these cars. But I say probably because I never actually saw them on the car since I gave up after skipping around through the video trying to find a shot of them mounted on the car.

Looks great. When you put spacers and wheels on BMWs always use anti seize on the hub. It won’t corrode and seize up. Clean good with a wire brush on a drill then put plenty of anti seize around all 4 hubs and next time you have to remove something it comes off easy. I have been working on BMWs for over 25 years and that’s a trick I have used for many years.

Anti seize for the hubs. Not pb blaster.

I'm also surprised you can fit 13 minutes of content for putting on wheels and front lip.
