I finally decided on, and ordered my wheels. Didn’t think I would do it this early, but I just couldn’t wait. Say hello to my 19" Volk VR.G2’s. They are the second generation of the TE37 by Rays Engineering, which I have always loved and almost got for my G35. These wheels come in two different styles. Type 1 has no lip whereas Type 2 does. I ordered Type 2 (pictured above). Unfortunately, I have to wait 60-90 days for them to ship from Japan.

Others have also asked why I would put Japanese wheels on a German car. My answer is, “because they’re awesome” and the fact that fewer people have (or want) these on M3’s just made me want to do it more. I actually like these a ton more than the original TE37’s.

The comment about spinners by the boy was true. He likes that kind of stuff right now, but I'm sure he'll grow out of it eventually. I told him spinners aren’t for race cars but he argued that his RC Skyline has spinners. So I said, “That’s just a toy. They’re not for real performance”...to which he replied, “the monster truck Escalade has them.”
