I test drove a E92 with 19's and EDC. VERY nice ride...better than I expected. I would not let 19's hinder your decision based on ride, because it is FINE.

A few things to consider (prolly more):

The tires on the 18's will be a bit cheaper to replace.
You don't have to shellout extra bucks for the 18's.
Ride will prolly be a bite smoother with 18's as the sidewall is larger.

For me, I am going 19's for a couple reasons:

I like the looks better
Look easier to clean/keep clean IMHO
A bit sportier ride/better turn in response

Either way, it kinda just depends on what you want look-wise. The difference in performance and ride will prolly be small. Question you want to shell out the extra bucks for looks/small difference in ride?
