Can you advise where you purchased your wheels and the tire sizes on your current set up. I was told that the replicas aren't as nice nor do they have the same offset as the OEM. Right now talking to the dealer reference ordering the 166 OEM wheels ($1800). Is that reasonable?

I didnt get them powder coated. The car came with those rims from the dealer. They were an extra $1200 but I got them for $600 extra.

You're far far braver than me to order a color you haven't seen in person. I really wanted to order Deep Sea Blue or even Neptune Blue sight unseen but I couldn't bring myself to do it.
