Big thank you to Mark and Carrie at BM Autosport

Post by Ianbrown777 » Mon Jan 25, 2016 7:47 pm

After many emails back and forth (due to the number of questions I asked!) I must say how impressed I was in dealing with Mark and Carrie when it came to the purchase of my new wheels and tyres. Absolute joy to deal with and their help and support and quick replies made for a great purchase!

Very happy with my wheels and tyres and after much deliberation I have got exactly the look I was going for. It isn't easy choosing a new set of wheels and it isn't made any easier with the 1 series fitment but definately got the right set up for my car and wrapped in a decent set of tyres thanks to BM Autosport!

Admittedly I could probably go lower on the KW V1 suspension but I definately prefer my car looking like this over factory after having it for a month:

Those rims look spanking! Very nice, really suit the car. How are you getting on with the tyres?

Yeah I think so too, thanks for the comments! The whole set up is something I am very happy with. I just need to get the ride height right, I dont want to go ultra low but the rear is too high for my liking and adjusting the rear KW V1 suspension is not as easy as I originally thought. I am impressed with the tyres too. Having been used to vredestein on my previous car which was running 300+ through front wheels I became obsessed with ensuring I had good tyres so I'm glad I went for these Hankooks. A good quality tyre and good in the wet too!
