I need some ideas for new wheels (20's), pics attached...

The crappy ones that come on the car just don't do it for me at all. I've seen the Beyern, but was hoping for some better ideas from you guys. Your thoughts appreciated...

I like my 20s that came with the M Sport package. I think they are style 303.

Funny you post those, as I like them and would have ordered them if they were available when I bought my ED. While I'm not a fan of the chrome pieces, I do like everything else about that package. It was not available when I ordered my car, but the "Sports Package" was, and I bought it. They just changed it up for the 10 model. That said, I don't know where I could get them. I've been looking in the aftermarket and no luck. You know BMW will charge me an arm and a leg.

Post some more pics. Your car is tough, and your driveway is sweet too.

Just another thing besides front passanger massaging seats that BMW changed for '10!

The funny thing is as strange it seems for BMW to ADD chrome to an M Sport model, the pieces don't really bother me. The fronts almost resemble LEDs or fogs and I find the chrome trim strip across the trunk less "sporty." I'd would much rather have a painted piece like the previous model's sport package.

Here's another shot of the car and driveway.

Yeah, they hosed us on the seat thing.

I would have preferred them to install an LED fog light assembly in the area they put the chrome piece on the front. It would have looked incredible. Don't get me wrong, I love the car and the wheels, that would be my ONLY add. I'm down a passenger rub-down and rims.

I am going to clear-bra my bumper as my LS460L got beat-up prettty well--lesson learned. I suggest you consider it as well given you have black.

Actually, Dark Graphite, but good suggestion nonetheless. Snow season is coming and the sand/salt wreaks havoc on cars. The hood/front bumper gap seems like a good separation point.

The front grill, bumper area is almost verticle so you know it's going to get a beating.

Thanks for chiming in. Yeah, I did look at those, but am holding out for the sport package M wheels. I want a newer wheel that hasn't been out there awhile. Unfortunately I have not been able to find even aftermarket versions. Bummer.


Edit:
Just heard from my local dealer regarding the 303M wheels, standard on the '10 "Sports Package". They will run, per rim, $800 for fronts and $900 for rears (tire not included), appx. This is not including shipping from Germany. Those are OUT now. Back to the drawing board.

$1,800 + 1,600 + 250 (shipping) = $3,600 + 2,000 (tires) = $5,600, but probably closer to $6,000. I think I'll settle for some non-chrome afters. Problem is, none of them come with run-flats so then I need to pack a spare. What a drag.

I spent that for my 128's, and after I had to replace two front tires in less then 6 months go figure. If they make replicas I would get them if I were you as long as they are good.

Run flats are available. My 20" Ms came with Goodyears. I took them off and replaced them with all-seasons.

I think you're getting bad info from your dealer or they're charging you retail. I was quoted around $5,500 with tires for the 21" style 321s.

Im looking at getting some wheels from Marcato Wheels. Theyre reasonably priced and all custom. I was quoted around 3200 for all 4.

I wouldn't be surprised as gouging is pretty common here in the metroplex when it comes to cars. I'll check into your 321's. You know, I may check with another dealer on the wheels just for grins.

Marcato? Hmm. I'm going to look into those as well. thx

BMR2009,

What is up with Toyota/Lexus??? Just heard they're recalling 4 million cars due to the gas pedal getting stuck in the floor position. How scary is that. First it was the floor mat recall and now this. I have a feeling the floor mat recall was just a decoy and the gas pedal getting stuck was the real problem.

You may want to have your lexus look at.

Bummer. My LS460L was an incredible car. I never had any problems with it the two years I had it. However, it was borrrrrring to drive. They are running down the right path, but I'd like to see more ponies and tighter suspension.

I sold mine when I bought the 7 Series.

Tire Rack has some closeout deals on the BBS CKs right now. http://www.tirerack.com/wheels/Wheel...All&sort=Price

These are obviously cast BBS wheels and not the much more expensive spun-rim or forged variety, but IMO they're much better looking than any BMW OEM wheel.

I just saw your post and apologize for not getting back to you. I will contact him immediately as I am VERY motivated to get some new wheels. H A T E my wheels. They don't look good on my car, IMO. They always look dirty no matter how clean they are.

Thanks bud. I'll get back...

I hate the wheels too. Ive narrowed my choices down to marcato or beyern mesh. I think for right now, the beyern mesh fit the car the best.
