Nice. First real shot of the 19s as well. And yes, they look way too familiar to the E46 M3 rims. CSL rims anyone?
The 18s are a joke in styling.

Nice find!!!

The car looks good. Those wheels look "heavy"... like the E46's IMO, never really liked the E46 M3's wheels....

CSL wheels have just GOT to be an option some time in the cars life. If not, these 19s sure are nice. The 18s have probably been ruined to make people spend more upgrading - a typical BMW trait, imho.

+1, those wheels look so much like the E46 wheels (which I dont really like...) but with CSLs I'm sure it would look good....

Nice.........looks like they are polished just like the 19's from the E46...

But..... the rear wheel doesn't seem to have enough concavity to it...

Great post Mii

The rims look great. I'm mostly impressed though with the high quality of the seats. they look spectacular.

also, notice the two piece center arm-rest.
