I like it, nice dark. (but indeed, you need other wheels imhp)
The guy must have been drunk when he chose them. I'll keep them for winter tyres.Bonte said:I like it, nice dark. (but indeed, you need other wheels imhp)
Not the car, but the wheels.(what is there not to like about an M5, they all want one and envy me) :M5thumbs:Bonte said:why did some people not like the car? Too dark?
Our front plates in switzerland are very small(luckely) but the allocated space is for german plates that are the size of a billboard.ycchan said:Looks mean. Can't say the same about the rims :hihi:
Funny how the front plate is so tiny, even smaller than the allocated space.
Well it seems that you are all unanomous on the wheels. Thanks for being upfront,(I don't like them either by the way and negotiated a discount from the garage who sold the car to me of an equal amount to the price of oem rims.) So I'm hunting for new rims, which I can say is far from easyGustav said:The wheels look a bit funny. However the car looks excellent!
Chrome sounds real nice, a few on the forum have done it and with the black it will look great. If I had oem's I probably would do the same but as I have to buy new ones I'm looking at my options. OEM's are superbe but fragile. And I don't think these will grow on me, but on ther other hand, I've had her for a month now. :hihi:Stickman said:Thank you for sharing pictures of your Beast. She looks great!! :thumbsup:
I also am not a big fan of the wheels, but remember it is your baby - so don't worry about what others think. If they grow on you and you like them, keep them. (But it sounds like you aren't thrilled with them either.)
It is all personal taste. I'm thinking about getting the original wheels chromed as I think that will look sharp on my Jet Black Beast. Others will cringe at that thought. ouich
So far, I've not seen another design that I like for the M5 - but again, it is all personal taste. Good luck and please post pictures if you change the wheels. Thank you! :cool2:
As I said above, Some like some hate but no one is in between. I'm not in a hurry to change though and am going to keep them for winter tires anyway. They do have a bit of curb damage so I'll be thinking long and hard. I to am not a big fan of pimp my ride style but as said above they may grow on me. Do note that they do look better in person than on the pics. Thanks for standing up for my rims. :blink:MINENCE said:I like the rims. They are masculine and subtle. Not in your face "hey look at me bling bling". I think chrome is too soft for the M5.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-comfficeffice" /><o></o>
