Can we get some e90 pics with the 18s?!

Or are they nonexistant?

I was wondering the same. I am 1st on the list for a sedan and want to get the 18's. It would sure be nice to see one before locking in the order.

I would upgrade the wheel to 19" just for $1200. 18" is ugly on M3

this might be a silly question, but are the 19s offered on the e90 and e92 the same as the e46 19s?

Interesting that they show Space Gray for the sedan when it is actually not available.

no point in getting the 19s if your planning on getting aftermarket wheels

Its also tough to find snow shoes for 19inch wheels.

I plan to keep the 18s for the snow and get myself a nice set somewhere down the line.

I was confused by this too. I have heard people say space gray isn't available on the sedan but I wasn't sure if that just meant for the US market. Anyone know if space gray is available on the sedan in other countries? Maybe that would explain it.

There should be a note somewhere that Space Gray is not available for the sedan. If not, it was left off by mistake.

As far as I know, no E90 M3 will be painted space gray.

Especially since space gray looks great on those 18 inch wheels.
