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?

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.
