Not the colour combo I would have gone for but I think it works once you get over the shock. Regardless of colour, great rims and perfect stance.
Could you bear to sell now after spanking all that cash on it?

Awesome upgrades, not a fan of the wheel color BUT everything else is awesome. You couldve gone gloss black, monochrome or silver just not gold. Just IMHO of course.

I agree with the other dudes...everything looks great with the exception of the wheel color. Then again, maybe it will grow on me...

I actually like the rims. You gave it a different look than most M5's around here and they go well with the color of your interior IMO. She looks clean for a 2000! How many miles do you have?

I think it looks great! The color works well with the gold wheels. I like that you went with an aggressive tire setup, the car must handle very well.

I also love the r-compound tires, huge grip. Good work, I hope you be able to get a great offer now. You deserve it in these tough times.

Thanks guys. I'm not trying to sell it anymore.
The tires are not r-compounds.
