Allen Isakson, the owner of this BMW, has been working on these wheels for months. Getting the bolts gold-plated, refinishing the face, barrels, and lips. Finally, yesterday he got the tires on and we immediately went out to shoot the car. I was fortunate enough to shoot pictures and video, but the video is a couple weeks out. I'll post an update when it gets done.
As you can see, the wheels came out perfectly. The gold, white, and red, with polished lips just seem to accent each other in the best way possible. And when the front bags let the air out, it sits perfectly on top of the tires.
The rear is currently sitting on Ultimo coilovers, but that will be rectified in the near future with an air setup. The interior has been spruced up with a wood Momo steering wheel, a custom-covered B5 Passat rear window shade, and tan suede-wrapped pillars.
Allen's wife is expecting within the next week, and this will be one cool ride for the baby to ride around in. Not everyone can roll 16" BBS RS wheels on their daily.
Other future plans include body work, repainting the car, and putting wider lips on the wheels.

While in California shooting a new feature for Battle Stance, I checked out the Avila Motoring Invitational put on by Stance Works. Check out this video I created for [func-shun]
Hello Battle Stance! My name is Trent. Some changes are happening around Battle Stance. You'll notice that the site has not been updated in some time. Jordan has been busy with other projects and life in general. This is where I step in. I'm taking over, but I stand united in Jordan's original plan for the site. Look for more features, videos, meets, and more. And it'll be happening soon. I currently run CAMautoMag and [func-shun] with some friends so this isn't my first car blog rodeo.
This does not mean anyone is going away, Jordan will still be involved, but this will allow him to focus on his other projects. I've been a frequent viewer of Battle Stance and would love to see it succeed, so look for a site redesign coming soon, more merch, and a new feature that I'm shooting this weekend. In the meantime, check out my other sites and get excited!
P.S. Feel free to email me with any changes/suggestions you might have. tbray [at] camautomag.com
