My unintentional 335is wannabe (328i coupe)

Took delivery Tuesday and I think I'm in love! Unknown to the dealer and me, the factory put on 19" style 313s at no charge. That's some generosity I'll take! The AW exterior with the Saddle Brown interior is just too nice. I wasn't sure I would like the SB when I ordered it but I'm so glad I took a chance.

So, if I can get this app to work correctly, here is my 2013 328i coupe with premium, M sport, satellite radio, heated seats, and bad ass rims! This may very well be the last of the naturally aspirated inline 6's BMW produces.

Nice!!

Makes me want to go wheel shopping.

Now, do the reflector delete and enjoy.

It's a beautiful car. Congrats!

ps: Lark is right.

I love the saddle brown interior too. I think I still prefer the E90 to F30. The exterior looks trimmer and more tightly wrapped around the wheels. The interior looks more simple, classic and expensive. Until the F30 sport pkg starts offering saddle brown as an interior option, it's safe to say I'm not going to get the new car itch.

I wasn't sure how I'd like the saddle brown, but credit is due -- that looks really sharp. Great looking car. Enjoy it!

It is, but lets face it; it's hard not to lust over those wheels.

313's are a big IS exterior cue. Stick on some BMS decals & give the M3's indigestion

+1 - on my "someday" list is to get a set of those wheels for my E93. Is there an 18" version?

I think so, but have just one word to say:

Apex EC-7

Hmmm, guess that counts as two words.

Yes, there is an 18" version of the 313. It's the stock wheel on the 335is. I have 18" on my is.

You can buy them here...
