grats - definitely will look much better after the spacers.

How'd you manage to keep white plates instead of the puke yellow ones? They let you transfer?

BTW, they were stopping people on the 495w on-ramp from the 135n... registration check but you better roll down those windows ahead of time cause that's pretty dark.

Looks great - nice job with the black 215s! Can you send details of the company that did the trunk roundel in dark black chrome please?

Cheers,

Looks great! Anyhow, how did you get the "old" NY license plates...I thought the new NY license plates are now the Blue lettering and "gold" background plates...homage to the old NY license plates from the 1970s...

Just my 50 shekels but i'm sure i'd have to see in person...and maybe take a spin (or two).
car looks a hundred times better in person. front plates are gross and who needs them when you have a handful of PBA cards . I don't take delivery on any of my cars if the front plate is mounted -- I make that very clear to my dealer.

I hear ya...those cards can def' give you a bit more room for swag. Saved my ass plenty of times in the past. Haven't reached out to my connect for one in a couple years though.

If i'm able to get back to the city on time, i'll try to swing by Bimmerstock and may bump into you gents.
