Need help Choosing M3 Edition Model Specs!!

There are two MonteCarlo M3 Editions I'm looking at:

1) Fully Loaded, blacked out everything, except for the rims (silver)

2) Almost fully loaded, No EDC, but has Black Rims to match everything else.

Which one would you guys choose? Black Rims (could cost $4,500+ for OEM later, or 2G for EDC).

Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Are these "edition" cars built and available now? Are they Cdn or US? Do you have the option of ordering and building your own?

I would recommend getting the EDC option. You can add the rims later, but not the EDC. This is a big purchase and you probably don't wants regrets you can't easily resolve down the road.

Do you guys know if I can achieve the same result as the OEM Black Rims by powder coating them?

I would say yes. Just make sure you get the right finish (matte, semi-gloss, glossy, etc)

Get the EDC. You can always powdercoat the wheels for like $500.

The SA is being really difficult to deal with over the phone. She replied to my question saying that it would be alot more $$ to swap rims from another 'Edition' model.

<-- I am the 'Brian' of which you speak. And no, you cannot change my brain.

OP, get EDC.

lee mcb is stunning and shows the lines of the car realy nice. pictures dont do it any justice and with the black grills,windows etc realy set the colour off.the interior is nice aswell with the blue stripe and blue stitching on the seats very classy.

People are still on the black wheel bandwagon? And on a blue car? No thanks, go with option 1.
