I just saw a white E-39 at the SD Autoshow that had gold rims...and I thought (as did the people with me) they looked horrible on the car. However...I think they *could* look good on a LMB or maybe Chiaretto REd.

Not sure, but it was on a Group 5 Motorsport car. Maybe there's a pic at www.group5motorsport.com? They were bright gold...bronze might work.

Might work on JB. I'd hate to spend big $ to find out otherwise though. I just know they looked awful on the white car. A white M5 is pure, understated class. To put those gold rims on it would be like James Bond getting a lip ring.
