They look stuck on. Betcha you can just heat them up with a hair dryer and peel them off.

I hope that is the case - they look like an afterthought.

Don't know if they will allow this combo, but it's not recommended at all.

White can be combined with all colours. Fox Red is higly recommended (like all colours with the exception of bamboo beige) with AW.

Why? Resale value? And who is the arbiter of what is or isn't recommended?
If a particular color combo is available and the buyer likes it, thats the only thing that matters right?

No. You should configure your car not for yourself, but for some future hypothetical buyer. Stop being so selfish and consider the all important resale value. That should determine your options.

Those are the 19" correct? I personally do not like the gun mental finish (which I thought were only on the 18"). I would like to see a silver finish.

I too would like to see a good old silver finish on the wheels. I don't like my wheels polished or especially chrome. F tha bling...

For what I can tell;

18" gunmetal

19" silver finish

Don`t know if the 19" is only in silver, hope gun metal is also available.
Maybe Scott has some opinion about this?

Not going to happen. How many BMW wheels in a given size and model are available in multiple colors or finishes?

You're right, that's not likely at all. Only Mini does offer wheels in different colours/finishes.

The M5 and M6 have different wheels. Any possibility the M3 sedan will have different wheels than the M3 coupe? Spy shots do not seem to indicate this.

With regards to interior/exterior color combinations that are allowed and BMW's recommendations regarding this, I think BMW is totally off it's rocker. Some of the BEST color combos I've seen in real life include light tan interiors with red or blue exteriors. However, BMW will not allow these combos in the M5 or M6. Now I know the designers are German so they have that European design style that can be TOTALLY off from what we like to see in America. I just wish they allowed customers more freedom with combining inside and outside colors.

That would be nice, but I bet an opening is cut on the bumper just like the E46.

The amber reflectors will be easy to remove since it looks like it just a stick-up piece.

It is not a stick-up piece, 08 M5 have already reported that it will leave a hole in your bumper just like the E46 reflectors.

With BMW combinations you can order any combo you want!! for the interior, if they make it you can order it (Europeans would know since they have individual) but even BMWNA, any option of palettes you see you can order BMW has no restriction over this. Try this go to BMWNA and try building a monaco blue with terra interior impossible, but check my sig I have that same exact combo and BMW didn't question once whether the combo could be ordered or not.
