Few pics of the 20" Monarchs...

In city/hwy driving, this car is phenomenal, throws you back in your seat, sounds good, and hulls some serious ass. At the same time, getting wicked mpg! Handling, not too bad, have taken some good twisities at high speeds and am still here to talk about it LOL jk, of course I am not nuts... All n all good bang for the buck... have driven a e63 and can say the 55 feels MUCH better...

Only thing I miss... yes the m6 turned ALOTTTTTTT more heads, but overall, I'm getting use to the luxury and sport in one... Don't get me wrong m6 was a beast, it maybe re-visited in the future when I can afford to have it has just a weekend warrior

Damn, look at all those nice cars in the driveway.


Love how you already slapped the rims on it. Where did you get them from sooo fast? Looks good. Can I recommend blacking out the grille, getting the flat hood badge, and blacking the roof?
