You'll notice I didn't call it a sports car , but a "performance" car. I chose my words carefully. I am not under the illusion that this thing is anything but a pig (see Sig) but it is definitely a performance car, albeit a comfortable one that makes concessions.

Can't complain. $11k for a comfy, good-looking (IMO), 400 HP V8 car with a huge aftermarket? Yes please.

Default Thanks for the help!!

Received my 949 aluminum lug nuts yesterday so finally had the wheels mounted today.

Ended up with the 17x9 TSW Panorama in bronze (40mm offset) with 245/45/17 Kumho Ecsta 4X tires all around.

Gonna be honest... it's gonna take me a bit to get used to it. I don't love it as much as I hoped, but I do like it very much. I would have liked those expensive 5-spoke BMW wheels better but hey, these were less than half the cost.

On to the pics.

Looks good, just needs a bit less ride height.

Agreed. Coilovers in spring will bring a little lower ride height. I'm thinking about 1/2" front and back.
