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.
