I have a Facebook page called Virtual Guitars hence why the Korina V is upside down.

Car looks great! I'm getting the same wheels on my M550i. Looks so athletic.

What kind of tint do you have?

Edit - Looks like you have the specs on your garage page

Thanks! The window tint is 3M Crystalline. 20% on the sides and back windows, 40% on the sunroof, and 70% on the windshield.

Be careful anywhere near potholes with these 20 inch wheels. It doesn't take very much to feel like you ran over a pipe. I've had low profile tires before, but I really have to be careful. It has changed the way I drive in the city. You can't take any crack for granted.
