I like the look but not sure how well the wheels would last on ruff roads.

How do they ride compared to an 18?

19's do look nice! I am envious in that department.. but I am very happy with my 18's on the touring. Much lower cost, lighter and still looks sweet.

I had 19's on the M3 and the ride is cleary rougher but not by much. Hard to quantify. But it's tolerable.. on the other spectrum, 17's are way comfy!

I had 19's on my touring for 2 years and many problems + 0 comfort with those wheels...
Now have 18" is not that bad but sometimes thinking to sell my Iforgeds and buy some 17"...

diagram is hard to see exactly what is what, but that should be it.

No, itīs the standard insert of the 330i facelift models.
I did the same to mine - just with the pre facelift version.
looks much better then standard and now I also have the headlight inserts in titaniumsilver ;-)



...sorry for the crappy pics - need to update my photostory......

Just trying to determine what needs to be painted. So the grill or the side pieces are matt silver? If you can shot a closer shot that would be great! thanks
