All PM's replied to. Special thanks to those customers who pulled the trigger on sets. Looking forward to seeing this thread fill up with photos.

Got the mags installed yesterday. Very pleased with how everything turned out. David and Wheels Boutique provided a great customer experience once again. Too early to give any driving impressions but I am happy with the aesthetics. BBS offsets are a bit more aggressive than stock so wheels sit a little more flush especially in the rears. The clean lines of the wheels and open design give a motor sport look and work well to show off the massive PCCB's. Dave had suggested the yellow lettering on BBS and he was spot on. Gives a little pop and plays well off the calipers. Everyone who picked up the wheels including myself commented on the weight. They are ridiculously light, it is really very impressive. Plus my wallet is heck of a lot lighter now too :)

Beautiful! Glad to see them on a touring. Thinking about them for my Touring too.

Any thoughts on driving feel? Do you feel the wheels move a little more responsively with the ligher unsprung weight?

In many aftermarket products there can be debate as to which is best. In wheels, however, there is none. BBS is the finest engineered wheel you can buy.

Thank you, I was able to get some seat time this afternoon. I felt that there was tangible difference in how the car handled and accelerated for sure. Turn in felt crisper and it seemed to pull harder. Of course this is the best weather we have had since I collected the car so I may have been getting after it a little more. In my experience a good light weight wheel can really transform the car, it is always my first mod.

Thank you for posting the photos here on the thread as well. We knocked it out of the park with the yellow lettering - I am glad you chose it. Many more photos to come from you and a few others who have purchased too ;)

Magnesium wheels yes, but there are more brands that are great or greater than bbs.
O.Z. , Braid, Speedline, Enkei, just to name a few. Braid for street wheels is the best, inexpensive, tuff as tanks, not heavy, will just not deform, brake or scratch, can be made to order easily and not very expensive for specific wheel nuts, offsets, etc. they are not very popular outside of rally world in Porsche oem sizes tho.

Robert Linton 03-16-2019 10:41 AM

Everyone is entitled to their individual opinion. For myself, I do not think that the albeit fine brands that you mention are as "great" or "greater then" BBS though some brands, e.g., HRE, definitely remind me more of the late Karl Lagerfeld rather than John Barnard.
