What do you guys think?
My 335is was one of the first to be delivered to the US and came with M style wheels before they started putting on the dedicated "is" wheels. I agree that the "is" wheels are are too open when BMW does not have finished/painted brake calipers. The 19" wheels, IMO, do fill the wheel wells like a glove, but are best if you primarily drive in an area with decent roads.

Current Stablemates:
'12 Porsche 911 GTS Cabriolet (MT); '11 BMW E93 335is (DCT); '08 BMW E60 535xi
Favorite Cars Gone But Not Forgotten:
'09 Corvette ZO6; '04 MB S600; '01 BMW 740iL; '01 Corvette; '90 Nissan 300ZX 2+2; '89 Jeep Grand Wagoneer; '79 BMW 320i; '79 MB 300D; '71 Pontiac Firebird Formula 400; '67 MG Midget
