Pic Request: e60 "stanced" on style 166

Greetings everyon,
Im looking for a pic of an e60 (non M) that has a nice stance on style 166 m5 wheels.

Considering coilovers and love the look, how you can combine coil overs and spacer with a wheel that has a wide lip to perfect a stance.
I dont see a whole lot of this on style 166 wheels with that perfect stance. Perhaps due to the fact its got no lip and people would rather something different from an oem wheel.
Ive done a bit of googling and cant seem to find what im looking for.

so anyone got pics of this?

although its the middle of winter, i went ahead and had my set of 166's installed yesterday on my 550. I'm not expecting anymore volatile storms in the bay area the rest of the winter so I put my summer wheels on. I'm not using spacers at all. I'll take pics this morning after I pull out of the garage and post them

I quickly snapped these pics as I pulled out this morning on the way to the office. Angles are great among other things so if you'd like better pics I'm happy to take them in less haste. For now, here they are:

Don't lower it ,looks perfect.Stock looks like its engineered that way and BMWs are already low.Any lower looks like kid stuff now.Will be out of style next time you blink.

Pretty much my main thought in leaving the suspension alone. If I was 17 or 18 I would (and did) lower my car. But that was on a Nissan Altima. That plus I don't like scraping coming out of driveways. But to each their own. The pic the OP posted was way to low for my preference but it wasn't the worse thing I've seen. I would like to see a pic of the setup he's going for

i agree.. That is nice. the front is a little to low for me. i just want to get rid of that wheel gap, hence the coil overs. any more pictures of that car?
I have seen that user name on another board, was that their car before the m5.. maybe i could find pics that way.
Thanks for the find!

I think its a win-win situation. IMO they look good on any e60, and you can use your current set up as a winter setup.

Those wheels have always been my favorite! Absolutely gorgeous on an e60. Wish they weren't a small fortune.

I hear you, love those wheels and if I tell you what paid for them, Second hand you will freak...

Found an HRE distributor here in Miami that had them in on trade, they had been sitting in the "shelf" for over 4 months. Owner decided to cut his loses . I ended up getting them for 3400 with tires.... I got very very lucky...
