While in Europe before the quarantine I rented this nice little car. We do not get this F40 here in US but it was a nice nimble car. Though I rented the M135, upon arriving at the port, Sixt said we don't have it and gave me this small 118i instead It was OK and I got a chance to try something we don't have here ...

They are really good cars. I tried the 118i for a day when I was wait for the delivery of my car.

Are they wider tyres on the rear with those wheels?

Maybe it's just the stance with it being lowered or the spacing (the wheels dont require spacers?) but it makes the tyre look a whole lot fatter.

Let's just put it down to great photography

No they're still 235s and I wanted that as there are loads of good tyres at that size especially MP4S. I think stancing them further out helps quite a bit too. Really happy with the rear look and still have the Maxton Diffuser to come.

Went for a little shopping trip, today, it was so great to get out and drive it. Loved it. Lives in Sport Mode haha.
