Sport Package with 18s

I'm wondering if there is any way to order the Sport pack with 18's rather than 19s. I need 18s to put some off road tires on but want the sport steering wheel, headliner and seats.

I don't think BMW allows you to customize packages. I would order sports package with 19s and trade them with 18s after delivery. You can probably work something out with your dealer? Or put an Ad here on bimmerfest.

+1

But if your plan is to make a trade you may be better off getting the 20's and trying to swap with someone on the forum.

20s will come with fender flares. Don't order them if you are planning to put 18s on.

Valid point. But I don't think it looks that bad with the 18's.

If he's putting on off-road tires maybe he wants the flares???

I can already picture an X5 rolling on 33" BFG All Terrains

Like the look, the snorkel is a stretch. Nice front bumper.

PS is that guy wearing the douchy toe/shoes/socks???

z51, I have stock 18's on my 08 e70. I would be happy to swap for 19's or 20's and will switch flares with you if you want (+cash). Let me know so we can work something out. My 18's are flawless, and the tires were brand new when i bought this cpo'd last year.
