Hey Chuck,

The 20"s (356, 373 or 374) were a $1300 option when combined and ordered with the M Sport ($4400) or Individual Composition Package ($6400). 373's are on my ride.

Increased top speed limiter (155mph) came with the M Sport and with other goodies like LED Fogs, M Steering Wheel, Aero Kit, Antracite Alcantera Headliner.

Full LED Lights was a separate option called the Lighting Package at $1900.

Just an update. So I switched to Primacy MXM4 - 245/40R19. Note my op was wrong, I had 19" not 20" run flats. It's been 7+ months and the ride has been MUCH better. No more bone jarring potholes or blown tires. There was no need to go down to 18", as I had contemplating.

I tend to agree, I had a 645ci with 19" runflats and got rid of the runflats eventually, but when I ordered my new 640i I ordered it with 18" again with runflats, now after 12 months I should have gone with the 19" even with the runflats as the suspension settings are completely different on my new car hence I could have gone 19", not a lover of 20" anyway. I may purchase a set of 19" and put winters on the 18".

So what do you do with bent wheels after you replace them?

Recycle them for aluminum? Hang on the wall as decoration?

Make glass topped tables. Polish the wheels, stack and tack, put a glass surface.
