Anyway, i ordered mine with 17" style 392 from the sportline and thats ok. Need to draw the line somewhere :-)
In South Africa, the basic 320i and 320d come with 16" and the basic 328i and 335i come with 17". The sport/luxury/modern line for the 320i and 320d come standard with 17" and you can upgrade to 18" or 19". The sport/luxury/modern line for the 328i and 335i come standard with 18" and can upgrade to 19". Obviously as you move up in model, the prices of the upgrade-rims become cheaper too.
