  1. Wheels, Brakes & Exhaust for an Alpine White F80

    With SEMA just around the corner, this Alpine White F80 came to us for some last minute modifications. Having previously installed the KW HAS lowering spring kit, it was time for us to install some new wheels and brakes. For maximum stopping power and fade-free performance at the track, this F80 opted for a Brembo GT big brake kit; 6-piston calipers in front, 4-piston calipers in the rear and massive 380mm j-hook rotors all around. Next, we mounted up a set of 19" black chrome Forgestar F14 wheels. Their iconic super deep concave spokes really give a car a wide stance and they do a great job of showing off the yellow Brembos. Last but not least, we cut out the stock exhaust's rear section and replaced it with the Arqray stainless steel system, which features beautiful torched titanium tips. Combined with the low ride height and gloss black trim, the new wheels, brakes and exhaust make this one seriously mean looking sedan. Enjoy!

  2. Black Chrome Niche Vicenza Wheels Installed on M3 Convertible

    You might remember this E93 M3 from a previous blog post, in which we installed quite a few high-end modifications and showed you how insanely loud this car was on our dyno. Well, this Alpine White M3 recently returned to our facility for a couple of changes. The first item on the list was the exhaust system. While it may have sounded awesome to us car enthusiasts, a collection of neighbors and some officers of the law tended to disagree. For the mean time, we swapped the mufflers back to stock to tone the car down a little bit. Next on the list were the wheels. Wanting something new and little different, the owner of this M3 opted for a set of Niche Vicenza wheels in a stunning black chrome finish. While these wheels aren't made specifically for the M3, we were able to dial in a perfect fitment using Macht Schnell 20mm spacers in both the front and rear. We're pretty sure this isn't the last time we'll be seeing this aggressive convertible, so stay tuned to see what might be next for this car!
