I can live with that then, I would hate for it to be replica chrome that weighs a freaking tonne.

Although, I must say I prefer the OEM high polished silver more.

Everyone has their own tastes...

Me personally I can't stand chrome wheels on anything. :/

Have fun with it.

I don't know. I am not a fan of Chrome on BMW, but it looks very good on Mercedes and Bentley. On BMW I like Black Chrome.

While I can't stand chrome wheels in general (there are a few exception) these look like they turned out nicely.

I still prefer the factory finish much more but if you like them then enjoy!

Looks great. The OEM 19" wheels work well in chrome. Congrats on doing something different.

Have you a couple of pics from further away...I'm thinking of having my spare set done in something similar or maybe some sort of shadow chrome so it looks a bit like this 997.
