Its been a while. been replacing a sorts of necessary and in hindsight unnecessary parts over the last year. Custom exhaust with 200 cell sports cats aswell as fitted some h&R springs and the car is now running on forged acs type two rs wheels.
Granted, they might look OK on a 90's muscle car, but not on what is arguably the most beautiful BMW coupe ever built.
They certainly don't speak "refinement".
I guess, those enormous two-tone wheels on cars with smaller wheel wells have always just screamed "Look at my sweet (insert car that people only change aesthetics and never performance) that I modded" to me. They're sweet rims, but I think they just got over-copied and now you see the look everywhere it shouldn't be.
IMHO, a rarer stock wheel always wins for me. Like style 68's on an E46. And, frankly, the spirit of BMW for me hasn't ever been refinement like the MBs do it. They're not the best choice, maybe, but I like that it clashes. I think that's the soul that draws me in, the beauty and sophistication against the goes-like-stink.
