Need advice on wheels

Need some advice. I just leased a Sapphire Black 2012 750Li and have the stock 15 spoke wheels on it. I did buy an extra rear set so I would have the staggered look. I really want another set of wheels and have considered the 303m style.

My question is, are there much better options out there and I am not seeing the forest for the trees?

How does the 21 wheels look on the car compared to 20?

Any pro vs con to consider when looking at 19 vs. 20 vs. 21?

I know it is a matter of personal opinion, but I want to know what you guys/gals think.

If you wanna go with the stock look then I would suggest getting the 21inch wheels from bmw.

Search the forum, there are bunch of treads and pictures from member's rides. One reason I chose my 750Li with individual options is because it has unique 20' wheels ( see my sig ), and I think it's the perfect size for everyday driving and it will hold up better than 21's, plus the price of tires for 21' is just crazy and limited option.
19's will be more comfortable but a tap too small for the big body 7, hell, my 20' looks small on the car.
But my favorite factory wheel is the 5 spoke 21', forgot the name of it. And then, if you go aftermarket, there are tons of wheels available, but be careful the style/brand you choose, I have seem so many F01/02 with cheap/wrong offset/bad taste/horrible wheels.
