Re. the wheels, the 18's will likely give a softer, better ride. Some will hold out for the 19s, but others will prefer or be happy with the 18s. Personally I don't like the 19s on the F30 - only the F31 - as I think the 18's have a better design to them and suit the car better, while also having the added bonus of the better ride (and cheaper tyres!).
Either way, I don't personally think it will stop most people from buying the car, if everything else is right about it...
