Finally got to see her in person!

And she is beautiful! MUCH better looking in person and the best looking BMW since the Z8 IMO. Very muscular and imposing. Everything looks in symetry.

I love how space gray shows the lines of the car. The 19's look GREAT but will probably go with the 18's in fear of the potholes on every road in NH.

It was at a BMW dealership in Germany. One of the things that stood out was the white/auburn luminescient guages. Very different from the current "all auburn" that BMW usually uses and alot brighter. I think it looks great and blends better with the iDrive display.

I also got to see the A5 and was not impressed. The fenders look too big on the car. Its almost as if the car needs 19s to look good. The interior is stellar of course and it does look nice in motion with the daytime running lights. After seeing it though, I wouldn't even consider the A5/S5 over a 335 or M3.

No, this was all they had.

The only other color I'm interested in is Interlagos. That's an M color that should stand out nice.

Bullet, I would not get the 18's. They are hideous.

2 solutions.

1. Get the 19's and make sure you have the suspension setting on "soft" most of the time- that way when you hit a pothole it doesn't feel like you crashed a 747.

2. If you must have 18's look at a BMW wheel catalog. There are a lot of 18's out there that IMO look better. And if that does not work there is always aftermarket........

Just my 2 pennies.........

Oh, and if you have a Q7 do you have the 20's on that?

Did they paint the grill Space Grey?? Or is it just the lighting?

Actually, IMO, the M3 rides significantly better on 19s in Normal Mode than a 1 Series M Sport - I think it's down to the Run Flat tyres on the 1.
