I know exactly how you feel now!!!

I'm debating on the wheels... I really like 333m 20's... but the debate is that I ski alot and those 20's come with the summer performance tires...

My options are:

1. Dress 20's with all season tires and sell the stock ones
2. Use 20s in the summer and change the rubber on the 18s for the winter.
3. Leave stock and if I get sick of them get 20s next spring as option 2 to refresh the car

Due to all my expenses, I'll probably opt in for 3...
First priority is JBD


What are you doing with yours?

I have the 333 M 20" They are by far the nicest and make the X5 look really awesome. Should go with those.

Nice!! Where in Brooklyn was that? I remember getting my first "brand new" 1996 Honda Accord at a place in Brooklyn, and I think I was paying more attention to the sales girl than to the car

Since you live in Brooklyn, the most "sensible" thing would be to NOT to go with 20s.... Potholes will kill them.. Even if the money is not an issue, the hassles of dealing with wheel alignments and replacements would be the issue...

P.S. And I loved the camera man's commentary along the way, including occasional outburst of an accent

To be honest... we're so used to that look that we don't even pay attention anymore. And if you start noticing any looks, you approach them and tell them to have an interview with you that's going on YouTube shortly

This dealership is not in Brooklyn. That's Open Road BMW over in Edison, NJ. Thank goodness all the papers were signed before we met the delivery chick... She definetely looked like she could deliver... No options explained, BMW Assist and Navi not activated... but she did a great job!

I'm still debating on the wheels... but I definetely don't want to change them before I get used to this ones and the power Maybe when I start getting bored a little bit. But I can't believe that the 3er and the 5er I used to own had nicer wheels

I was debating 20s for long time.... very long as I had to wait for 5 weeks before production even started... But eventually my bro convinced me to go with them (he drives 2010 X5 4.8 with 214s), and based on his experience with them for the prior 8 months, he did not really have any major issues...even though he drives to Brooklyn quite often, but watches out for potholes there... So it is going to be tough decision, but 214s look absolutely gorgeous on the car and make it look totally different.

BTW, re your comments on video about 55mph on NJ turnpike since fuel economy is paramount... A little bit of story.

I used to be a "Honda man" - 2 accords, then 2 Odysseys (as we started to have kids)... Then in 2005 my brother got an X5 (just about the same time when I got 2005 Ody), and I said - "why do you need this beast?" Only to understand "why" when he let me drive it ... I had to wait ~ 3 years until kids grew up a bit, and my wife started to pack a bit lighter, before I finally managed to get into 2008 X5 4.8... Fuel economy - out of window right away, it was "expected" to floor it all the time, and over 85mph, and get 14 mpg in mixed driving because, quite frankly it would not make a big difference if I did not floor it - mpg wise. I stopped paying attention to my gas receipts, as they were quite depressing, never mind the price of premium in summer 2008!

Now comes the diesel... with potential to get 22-23mpg in mixed driving - that is huge difference over 14, and diesel is cheaper than premium around where I live... All of the sudden I am back to 75mph on highways, not necessary always in the left lane, just taking my time and enjoying instant mpg needle hovering around 30... I managed to get computer to show 596mi range once, which drove my brother bananas given he only saw 400+ on his computer one time - when his car had 6mi on odometer - which was at the time of delivery...

The moral of the story - diesel engine makes me want to drive more careful and watch gas consumption... and I still get the torque when I need it !

No kidding. I was hoping I would catch a break on the delivery time to the west coast, and I did! They estimated 16 days, but it's only going to take 15! woohoo!



Anyway, it's supposed to arrive at the VPC on Saturday (25th). If I'm really lucky I'll have it by the end of next week once it's trucked to Seattle.

Do I dare to hope?
