I believe that there is a boardmember who has a E39 M5 with those wheels on it. The back wheels were 12.5" wide I believe. Too much when you are trying to put Porsche GT2-width shoes on a sedan.

the problem is not the width...its the diameter and the ride height of the car.
those look like 18's and should be 19's and the car should sit about 1/2-3/4 lower front and about 1/2 lower rear and it wouldnt be so bad

No, it would still look really bad. The rim size is fine but the profile of the tires is too low. Also the rear tire stick out of the fender which is never cool and illegal in some places.

Truly hideous.

Almost makes you wonder where are the clear tail lights, huge aluminium wing and underbody neons ??????

A few thousand stickers and a stereo with similar power output as the engine would then complete the job.

the only thing i dont understand about the diesel series from BMW 5 is:

BMW 530 D has an extremely ugly exhaust
BMW 520 D's exhaust is much nicer

so why dont they put the exhausts on the 530 D? :)
