    Thumbs up Worlds first? Midnight Blue BBS RG-Rs

    Morning, ladies & gents,

    I'm a bit revved up about the wheels I just had refinished in a custom color and I figured I would share some pics. These are on my 335d.

    The paint is pretty dynamic, so it is hard to capture in any 1 shot, but here are a few so you get the idea...

    I liked the color so much that I even painted the badge to match Click here to enlarge

    thanks! Lol @ dressing the tires. I like my wheels to be shiny, but it never really bothered me for the rubber to be dull Click here to enlarge ...I suppose it will now.

    Haha. Yes, I had the badge painted to match. I think that's it for now; don't want to overdo it. The car will be mostly white with cf and midnight blue accents. If I get around to painting the engine bay, it will likely have some midnight blue accents as well.

    Painting the badges to match is a cool touch and I dig the color of the rims but I think it would look better with the lip polished for contrast.

    Thanks, Sticky. I considered the polished lips and I think it would probably look pretty good, but its just not my thing. I've always been a big volk mag blue te37 fan, so I was going for that look with some Deutschland flare compliments of BBS.

    No worries we all have different tastes! And yes, it reminds me of Volks.

    Agree.

    I always find when you add 'open' rims to a car suddenly the brakes look small and ugly. If you don't want to do a bbk I suggest slotted/x-drilled rotors and painted calipers. Just my suggestion.

    Yes, the plan is to go to an open slot two-piece at the time of my next brake change. I may also paint the calipers...not sure yet.

    It's an e90LCI Msport bumper with the reflector holes deleted and a CF lip molded on (left some of the CF exposed in the paint job).

    I really like these. How do you think this would this look on a carbon black car?

    Thanks, boost! Honestly, you may need to go a bit lighter/brighter with a CB car if you want the wheels to pop.

    I picked the color because its pretty subtle and only appears bright in the direct sun, great highlights any time though (as long as they're clean, they almost glow blue). With a black ride, my fear is that there wouldn't be enough contrast--almost like wearing a black shirt with navy blue pants--but it could work.

    Carbon black isn't actually black it's really dark blue maybe a shade darker than your wheels
