any So Cal dealers have cars in with 18 inch wheels yet?

I need to seem them in person. I am afraid they are too dark with Jet Black. I prefer some contrast.

ok - you convince me - I will get 26" rims on may M3 - maybe some Chrome spinners.

and before I drive F all the way to sherman oaks to see thes 19 inch wheels - I would first drive 35 miles to McKenna to get pics if the DCT and redeem myself. well, maybe, cause since I gettin a 6Mwho cares about DCT>

I think you need to see for yourself, but IMHO the 18s are too dark for Jet or Jerez. I have 18" on Jerez and after a week of staring at the combo in my garage I still can't excited. I didn't/don't care for the 19" wheel either, so I'm going aftermarket

just went by Asseal - they had a AW with 18's. the dark color looks good with AW and the black trim , black CF roof etc. but to dark for jet black IMO.

Just got my M3 for MSRP from Center Van Nuys

They have an Intelagos Blue in the Showroom with the dark 18's. My opinion; they look great with that color combo
