Nice set of wheels.

What's next on your mod list ? Besides the X5 35d. These will look very hot on the X5 as well.

mgcyr 04-16-2012 06:42 PM

I'll put up some better pics on a sunny day. The wheels are amazing.

Very nice looking wheels! Were you still running stock RFTs on your 351M's? I bet the difference in handling is quite an improvement. :thumbup:

Thanks. I was and it is.

I haven't had much of a chance to do any spirited driving, but I may take the long way into work tomorrow.

i have no idea if I'll do anything else. I may get Dinan stage 2.

I was thinking about getting the same wheels for the X5, but I'm not sure I like the idea of having 2 different cars with the exact same wheels. I can tell you, the Morr's are freaking beautiful.

Titanium silver is not bad at all! But I like the stock wheels more...This rim looks like it's stolen from somewhere.

My guess is his photography isn't very good. These wheels should look good if they are brushed with a tinted clear finish.

correct. The picture does not do justice. It was a crappy overcast day. I will take better shots when the lighting is better.

They are beautiful, and are actually quite a bit lighter than they look in the picture.

Those look ridiculously good. I agree, pictures don't do them justice. I've drooled over enough shots of this wheel to know what it actually looks like!

I'm looking forward to picking up my TiAg tomorrow in Munich. Thanks for the pix.

Calgary Agent 04-17-2012 07:10 AM

They look awesome. Had 19" VS7's on my 335. They were 10.5 lbs lighter per wheel than the stock 18" with RF's

mgcyr 04-17-2012 11:41 AM

Here are some better pics. Keep in ming that I am not a very talented photographer. I hope you guys like it.

Those wheels look SERIOUS. The color combination is great. Congrats! :thumbup:

grizbo 04-17-2012 06:50 PM

Now those are much better photos! Great match to your TiAg color and they fill out the wheel wells nicely.

tjangi 04-17-2012 06:58 PM

Very nice. Great wheels and color combo.

Stealth.Pilot 04-17-2012 07:41 PM

I think these wheels would also look fantastic on a black BMW.

azray7 04-17-2012 07:49 PM

Those wheels look awesome!

mgcyr 04-18-2012 05:32 PM

I added black grilles tonight.

I'm really not one for the black grilles, but to each their own.

I'm not sold either. I thought I'd give it a try for a few days and see how I like it.

Personally, I like the M5's...black grille with chrome ring.

Plan on moving to this look soon.

I agree! The black grill adds a bit of flare and does compliment the Titanium Silver finish, but the chrome around the grill keeps the BMW refinement.
