They look decent...especially with a nice drop. I think they would look odd with a heavily modded body though...ie Ericcson lid, front lip, etc. That's just me though!

That said, i really need a set for winter! Anyone selling?

If I had 19's I would have traded it down for 18's. I think it's more practical and personally I think 18's look better. 19's have too much bling factor, looks a bit like chrome dubs.. I personally love graphite colored wheels, so they look fantastic on any M3 body color. I do not like the new 18's in silver finish.

That said, since it's all all subjective, so yeah, 19's suck, 18's rule, I'm awesome!

Kenyon, I like the first house better than the second house.

Niqui, whats up with that P4? Why is the tail still up? Is it broken?

IMO, the silver 18's looks horrible especially on AW.

Oh, that sucks! I really wanted the graphite. It's still listed on the website and my salesman never mentioned the change when we discussed wheels.

I highly doubt you'll find an overly modded E9X M3 with stock 18''!

Agreed. Stock 18's in black look fantastic. What size rotors do you have for the Brembos?
