Oh, I missed this. Did South say they wouldn't be available in non-black finish?

That's indeed what I think. They're not available in Germany, so says the canadian ordering guide (something like "dark finish"). Only Mini offers different finishes for same style of wheels...

Best regards, south

Well, this might be South's opportunity to be wrong for the first time then, but it sounds like there is evidence to suggest he will be on the money!

Anyway, to get back to the point, I think it is a bit strange that they are not available in different finishes in Germany as the dark finish does not seem like the kind of finish that would appeal to the masses although I personally think it looks fine. And, doesn't it make black cars look too dark?

the 18's in person dont look too bad ... but just too dark for my taste.. i remeber with the E46 m3, i had a carbon black one n the rims were light, a friend had the white one, his rims were dark, another the silver his wheels also dark and a phoenix yellow, his also dark .. suppose if u take a black ///M the wheels will be light ... but im sticking with the 19's
