Car looks great. Hope you enjoy it. Were you able to order the car with the Style 356 wheels or were the installed by the dealer?

They were dealer installed. Along with the Carbon Fiber trunk spoiler lip. (not shown in this picture).
I just thought that the factory wheels on the 550 were horrible, so I worked out a trade with the dealer for the 356 weels.

Great looking car. Love the wheels. I agree that they are a lot better than the factory wheels. Post a pic of the spoiler when you get a chance. Dark Graphite 550i is my ordered car and I thought the rear spoiler would look great on that color. Congrats!

Awesome look, great color/tint combo. Quick question though if you don't mind, what exactly did you work out with the dealer as far as the wheels? Did they give you retail value on the stock wheels towards the 356s?

I wish, they wont give you retail value on the stock wheels and tires. I think the best you can hope to get out of them is to pay 50% of the retail for the new wheel and tire package.

5% Charcoal on there, 50% on the windshield.
