It was the first time I put the foot down and was shocked when I saw the clock.

Not test driving it wasn't the best move. I'd been fascinated with BMW's since I was young and just assumed I would love what many think is the ultimate bimmer. I don't think I bought the wrong car, I just need to win the lottery and build some decent roads around here. You can't go 50 metres without dodging potholes and patchwork.

I will probably go for the 18" wheels, which brands are the best? I think I will keep the 19's and track this car someday, hopefully I don't wet my panties

If I were in your shoes
I'd get Apex Arc 8 wheels
With 255/40 18" fronts, and 275/40 18" in the back
That's the biggest sidewall you can fit to this car
Bug sidewall= comfortable ride
And nice they are wider than the stock 245/40 and 265/40
You get more grip
