Hey guys ended up picking up a set of bbs style 5's 17x8 et20
With a little bit of help from the guys over at adaptec speedware I got my adapters in 15mm putting me with an et of +5 all around and gave my car about a 1 inch drop


Needless to say a little baseball lovin and some trimming was needed to fit these

On the other hand... seems like a lot of modification just to fit a X8 wheel.

if you have nothing nice to say then dont say anything at all. If you dont like it whats the point in coming in here and calling the guy a hipster and talking shit about his fitment. we get it. you dont like the benz on style 5's. Wagon is tits in person, fitment is crazy also..... even on a X8 wheel......... what modification was needed other than shaving/rolling the fender ??? none. I was there. I helped fit these.
some more shots of the wagon from this weekend. For those of you who enjoy it.

Actually you are very wrong, I have nothing against the benz. Or Style 5s.. being the one of the best looking wheels that came on a bmw. I think it looks good as i said.

What I didnt like it is all the stupid stickers.. sorry I prefer a cleaner and classier look - which would be opinion obviously and everyone is entitled to yours.

I find it weird you have to modify for a x8 when I have run Benz wheels that were x8.5-x10s on my vehicles without modification.

Some people want to be low and slow fine by me.. I rather be low and fast so I guess my opinion would differ to that than all the kids who think "stance is everything".

Guess i need 10000 stickers and a bike rack to fit in.

i think the centercaps on the wheels would create a nicer look.

And what does the Mustache sticker mean on the front of your bumper?

again...... if. you. have. nothing. nice. to. say. then. dont. say. anything. at. all. modification was needed because the wheel sits at +5ET with adapters. Try reading the post first.

boostedr56 does have a point, hes just stating his opinion. no one should get offended. Where would we all be without criticism? I dig the wheels, the stance, and the whole car but not feelin the mustache on the front. takes the cleanliness from the car by adding attraction to the mustache. Car looks great tho, good job!
