You are very welcome, buddy. Eddie told me you decided to go for the 3 piece wheels and changed your mind on the color design. What are you going to do now? He said you are adding black gloss with chrome lip and something else? I'm a bit confused. Can you elaborate? Is this the wheel you decided on?: http://nicheroadwheels.com/Targa-%20...ace-w-3518.htm. I think the AC Forged 312 looks absolutely terrible. Convex (pushed in deep) wheels like that don't go well on most SUVs. In my opinion (no disrespect), they make a car look very "ghetto." If you are going for the A210 style, definitely get the one that has the middle rim piece to the outer-most area where it is actually touching the lip. The gloss black with brushed face has this design and looks good:



Avoid this design because it will make your wheels look smaller:

That's strange. Eddie must be very busy. I made no changes based on our last conversation where you and I agreed that the best option was the M130 with the custom paint job.
http://nicheroadwheels.com/targa-m130--w-5335.htm

I am quoting our final choice below:

########
Falken 950 or Delinte D8 tires. 285/35r22 front, 305/30r22 rear. That's going to give amazing tread thickness, ride quality, and protection. He's also doing the custom space grey interior finish for you on the black m130 and doing gloss finish for the whole wheel
########

I will reach out to Eddie and re-confirm. Will do a final check before the order is placed with him in April.

Thanks a lot.

Yeah, he must be confusing you then with someone else. I'll talk to him today as well to make sure he has your order correct because the M130 gloss black was what you wanted with the custom inner area that is bronze to be painted A52 Space Grey to match your body similar to this look/design (which as we agreed would look the best) while the outer area is gloss black around it:



Here's a closer pic of the original and how it looks:

Revisited the thread... gonna take my words back about Lumma - seems like the best kit there is for the F15 in terms of looks. Contacted them and... well this definitely requires a lot of thinking EUR 23.2k for an exterior tuning set with 22" rims (and w/o trunk spoilers) and 24.5k for same with 23". And then you have to pay for painting and installation... The word OUCH comes to mind!

OUCH indeed . I'd rather buy an X5M at that point.
