The BMW 745Li has been one of BMW’s riskiest vehicles in terms of styling. It broke away from the sleek lines of the 90’s E38 and replaced it with a bulky body with futuristic looking parts. When you first laid eyes on this model, you most likely formed a strong opinion. Some loved it while others hated it-
until they seen this E66.
Jim gave us a call and told us he wanted to build his car to be VIP styled and we were thrilled since it hasn’t been executed (outside of Japan at least). The platform is very fitting being a big body refined German flagship luxury sedan. The unorthodox styling of the car would eventually gain it a reputation in the DUB scene. This would present a challenge for the E65/66 to be accepted as a vip styled vehicle as the stock body styles are not as loud. Gaudiness is only accepted if executed with precision in the vip scene where as in DUB, there are no limits.
Excessive lowering of the suspension, negative camber adjustments, proper wheel selection and fitment would all have to be spot on to bring out the untapped potential. The Mador seemed like the perfect wheel for this particular 7 series. The aggressiveness of the concave matches that of the AC Schnitzer spoilers on the 3/4 angles while the silhouette of the wheel face compliments the body lines on the side profile. It has a modern appeal to it which ties the whole package together.
What you see below was a collective effort to help turn this dream into a reality. Special thanks to Platinum VIP for the suspension parts and installation and Jim for choosing us to best represent his vision.
Wheel Specs: 22×10.5, 22×12, Brushed with chrome lips.

Since we debuted our Admiror pillars, they have been a big hit. We have made a few different styles to compliment some of our wheels and give customers many options in personalizing their vehicles.
Our Grassor pillars were done in the same style as the wheel. The solid outers can be done in a different color than the mid section. The four diamonds were inspired by the Grassor-C in 20.” The pillars accentuate the look of the car when matched with the wheels. These are only available for sedans. Coupe owners, look into our Solis pillars for a similar style.

April is an exciting month for car enthusiasts. The New York International Auto Show debuts many new vehicles and concept models that will give us a glimpse of what is ahead. We were originally going to have a booth but a couple of our projects were delayed. This does not mean we will not be there covering the event. The show is a week-long from April 6th-12th at the Jacob Javits Center in New York City.
One of the booths I plan to spend lots of time at is Fisker. This new company has blown our minds since we seen the Karma in person. They plan to debut multiple new cars at the event including the Atlantic. Judging by the images posted online, it seems like it will live up to the hype. Check out some preview pics
Who else feels that it would be better with some Luxury Abstract wheels? The beautiful curves of the car would be at home with designs from the Abstract line such as the Stella. Read the rest of this entry »
In December, we showed you guys our new wheel from the Luxury Collection, the Mador. Since then, we made a few tweaks to cut down the weight as well as refined the look. Here is the finished version.

One of my favorite artists Bruce Robinson MacDonald will have a booth located in section M1. I wouldn’t want to miss a chance at seeing his new work as well as getting new inspiration from all the other artists and architects.
