Falken FK453. They were the budget choice and are the successor to the popular FK452, but I seriously can't wait to finally ditch the run flats.

Very nice indeed!! Can you tell me the specific wheel you got and the tire sizes? I've always contemplated getting a set of those and they sure look great on your car.

Cheers!

Thanks mate! I am loving this look. I went with the lightweight sportline cs.16 wheels that are 19x8.5 et35 up front and 19x9.5 et44 in the back. Tire sizes are 225/35/19 and 265/30/19 with no rubbing after driving for about 30 miles today.

Just picked up 4 new BMW roundel caps for the 313s of my E89. The old caps have already been corroded. For the E85 I got the BMW USB charger for the cigarette lighter. Next project is to install a MP3 connector for the ol' BMW Bavaria Business radio.

Ordered an z4 m steering wheel for my roadster.
Replaced valve cover gasket. But made big mistake by letting o2 sensors wires caught between valve cover and cylinder head. Cracked valve cover. Ordered a new valve cover and gasket.
Also ordered a replacement rear glass for the hard top.

Speed Bleeders.
Just put on new pads and rotors this weekend.
In shakedown testing I actually paid attention to the brake feel.
Too darn squishy.
