Panamera's great. Its mindblowingly fast and feels it, and it handles like a dream. It honestly feels like your aiming the car rather than pointing it. The interior is also one of the nicest I've ever been in (I have alcantara everywhere). The only downside (and its a big one), is the shape and dimensions of it. The blindspots are horrible, and all you can see out of the back is the wing (on the turbo at least). Also, you forget how big it is sometimes and it can be very dangerous. Ive scratched the rims 2 or 3 times because you take a corner like your in a 911, and then realize you have 15ft of car behind you. Overall, honestly, I enjoy driving my X5M much more because its predictable and the car feels like its an extension of your body when your driving it. Although you might not get the same amount of luxury, or head turning ability, on the road, I would take the bimmer 10/10 times.

Nice...very clean.

Mine will look relatively similar with the LUX angel eyes, body color roundels and the Velos ECU tune. I don't plan on lowering mine though. Also looking at wheels and Akrapovic exhaust.

Great photo though man! Very well done....looking forward to the rest.

I love my KW's !!

The wheels you should consider are the DPE CS 10 or SP 10 in Matte black!

can anyone tell me which wheel spacers are the best to use. I have no clue what sizes or anything would work best. I want to make my rims pop as much as possible without getting any rub on the bodywork under hard cornering.
(PS.Heres another pic to hold you over, sorry for the wait, post-processing seems to be taking FOREVER :P)

HR TRAK spacers - application guide on website.

Just take a ruler and measure from the edge of the fender to the tire and thats your spacer width.

Just don't go to far past that our ill have to throw you a sombrero (joke of course not trying to offend anyone)

Don't forget to get longer lug nuts to accommodate the increase in the width.
