also, i've been looking for info on KW v1s since forever on the F21, can't find anything only stuff about v2 and v3..

did you source them from a local supplier to you, there's not much info on the kw site itself..

i got talked out of a grey/black car this time around.... i wanted a space grey e92 when i owned that too. after seeing this i think i will certainly be ticking grey next time i order... very nice!!

Tires are Falken FK-453 in 225/35 and 255/30

Thank you for the kind words!
Are they Hyperblack or Gunmetal?
Amazing look!
Congrats!

Thanks all!

Wheels are gunmetal.

KW V1 is available from KW themselves. You can find them in their shop.
You can also get the partnumber and order through your local shop if you prefer.
http://shop.kw-suspensions.eu/

And to answer to cozza: yes, the car is lowered 4-5cm with KW V1 coilovers.

That's a fantastic looking 1er GeoBem007. Those VMR wheels look very nice indeed

How's the ride? It looks absolutely magnificent, but I'd be a little worried about the comfort if I were to lower mine that much.

You get a little more feeling with the road, if you know what I mean.
But the comfort is still amazing even with those 19".
Changing from RFT to non-RFT tyres is also a huge difference.

Although VMR are amazing, did you considered Alufelgen SF-71 wheels? (more concave)

I'll doubt about VMR or Alufelgen if I decide change my wheels someday...

My BBS LM replica wheels are 8x17" et35 with 205/50-17 tires. The tires do look somewhat narrow on those wheels, so I think I will go slightly wider next time.
