As many fellows and fans of the Indonesian Stance scene, all of us here at this blog are given such an amazing opportunity to see dozens and dozens of beautiful and sometimes incredible fitments on cars on their daily basis, but we’ll be honest with you when we say that only a few cars (but many actually) can really make us scratch our heads and wondering if we had a beauty lady like that. Sometimes when we found the incredibly low car, and the owner of those insanely low car felt that he or she already in a way to define his/her self as great stance or fitment, we just described it as useless way though. You don’t need to act like a despondent guy who think about a trophies and pride when you had only a millimeter gap between road and your front bumper. But perhaps some guys out there felt that trophies on a contest or car show for winning a category like “too damn low” champion can intriguing people to appraised your car higher. Some said yes, but I bet some just lie when appraised your work. Act as natural as you can toward your beauty lady when modifying them is the essence of all. Most of the car show winner in some category will increase their popularity among social media like Instagram, Path, etc. But believe me, it’s hard to stand up as a champion again for the next event though. Why, because other participants that on last event had beaten by your car in certain category will throw out more money to modified their ride and come back to next event as a champion. Come on guys, that is a pretty shame life. We are here to share together with all of you and help you out to gaining your subconscious toward how beauty and happy if you have a car with slightly classy modified without sacrificing the function of those car it self as daily basis ride. Talk about gaining popularity with these style? For show man it’s absolutely tasteless, but for us, its fully of taste.
If we’re talking static, proper clearance, and less rubbing fenders against the wheel barrels when going over any dip or bump, super rare wheel, flawless lady, neck breaking, finger pointing fitment here guys!!! I would like to shared to you this classy magnificent BMW E39 528i that belongs to our friend Agung Wijaya from Euro Garage. One of the guys that somehow pulled our lust into eyegasm for their works. What’s even more bad ass is that he was able to combine a super sexy and rare wheels that not many of you would ever expect. Of course it’s not an Ferrari, Aston Martin, or perhaps new expensive line up of BMW, it’s just an ordinary E39. Please allow us to show you how Jay (Agung Wijaya) do it to his lovely beauty, where there is no excuse for having any kind of plural set of wheel, but not a brand new expensive wheels though.
If we discussed about E39 it self, for me it one of the best car in the world because many people has laid claim to thanks to superb handling, powerful, refined engines and great build for this platform. If you can afford it, you’ll never want another vehicle. Sure, the entry-level 520i was quite under-powered, but it still offered straight-six engine refinement, while the 528i and 530i version were near-perfect for me as daily basis ride. It had a unique blend of chassis agility and six-cylinder sweetness in a fully equipped package able to accommodate five in refined comfort that no other carmaker could match. Even its great rival Mercedes-Benz couldn’t match it for dynamics. By the way, the BMW E34 really brought BMW to the attention of the BMW lovers in the world. Here was a good-sized car they could afford, at a pinch, if they were doing well. It’s now 20 years old, but Jay felt it was still popular and great basic to lend down those super rare wheels into this car. The E39 had lots to live up to when it was launched in 1996. Unlike the models that followed it the E39 was a mild evolution of the E34, which was wonderfully elegant with clean lines and perfect proportions. The E39 was sleeker and smoother, but it retained the elegance that keeps the E34 looking fresh even today. There were new headlights and a new grille at the front, a smoother roofline and a stubby tail reminiscent of the smaller 3-Series. It was a car that looked good from all angles, a modern classic and a worthy successor to the great E34.
Turning his attention to the exterior, the original Aspen Silver metallic still shining beautifully in this car. Jay also picked up a full M-tech body kit as meant for an OEM of M5 Bodykit and it successfully fitted it to his car well. The other attention goes to M5 style folding mirror in both side. And all the exterior parts are finished by the Eisenmann Muffler in the rear of this car.
The built against bought argument is so touchy topic as the form vs function argument. Both sides will argue to the death over which is the “correct” way to go about building your car. There are good and bad examples on both sides. On the built side, you have people who shouldn’t be allowed to touch a wrench let alone go about building a car. On the bought side, you have the air-heads with more money than brains who have no clue what’s done to their car let alone any style. While for us here, the “do-it-yourselfers” take pride in showcasing what they’ve poured many hours of blood, sweat, and tears into, the guys who can write the big checks to shops should take a little pride in knowing that they have that much loose change to spend. Being in wheel’s business for since year ago and always made a satisfied testimonials or comments from his customers already make this man proud about his achievement so far. But in some day, he felt that he really need to built a great piece of work to show more his capability of great fitment-maker. “Its time to built for my own good.” Jay said.
I’ve been saying it over and over, sometimes these days your wheel game just isn’t cool unless your rocking double-digit widths front and rear, and offsets so far in the negative that a government stimulus wouldn’t bring them into the positive. When I first saw pics and specs of these Felgenschmiede sudhessen FS6, my jaw hit the floor, and then I took a peek in my garage and looked at my several wheels (which many have said are rare and aggressive) and suddenly felt insecure about the manliness of my specs for my lovely old trusty cars. Damn guys, even I have tried to googled this wheels, and its resulting with all of german languange review that I couldn’t understand. I’ve seen some crazy rare wheels in my time, but these are certainly up there and are not just built as a ordinary wheel. Felgenschmiede sudhessen FS6 measure up at 18×10 in the front and 18×11 in the rear, wrapped with 224/40/18 and 245/40/18 set of tires.
The last bit that Jay had to address was the suspension. Instead of tackling a crazy static setup with custom combination suspension, he went with a more conventional coilover setup by using the FK Streetline Coilover. The setup is simple, but it works because the stance and fitment are absolutely on point.
There’s so many sources now to learn how to achieve great fitment on your car because of the internet to see all sorts of different cars and builds, and thousands of places for people to tell you how you should do things. But really, the only person you need to listen to is yourself though. Take advice, but don’t let someone tell you how to build your car. Just know that if you really want to build a car, you will got to stick it out. It’s not as easy as it looks, especially something of this caliber here. If you’re determined though to follow your dreams, the sky’s the limit. Thank you for Agung Wijaya or Jay from Euro Garage to show and share his great built toward his beauty E39. Agung Wijaya also would like to say thousand of thanks to Mr. Sigit Prasetyo for his helps to built this magnificent E39 and also his garage EuroGarage at the past.
