19" wheels don't fill the arches any more than 18". As all the wheels are the same OD, it is all an optical illusion, (wider wheels may look a little different), but still same arch gaps unless you lower the car.

Know what you mean about the rose tinted glasses... many get caught out forgetting BMW, RWD, summer tyres and winter, just doesn't work in the bad stuff. A staggered wheel set are even worse.

Don't really get the EBII, black is amazing 'when' clean and white just make you look like your trying too hard-( apologies to all just a personal choice)

Loved my 5 series, that was Titanium Silver I think

What have you got on order ?
I have a loaner it Glacier Silver, it's a touring 328i, the colour grows on you.
I have ordered EBII though in M Sport cos thats BMW for me.

They're Style 398's staggered 18's but not an option on the M Sport I'm afraid.

They've got an EB 328i M Sport on the 5 spoke Style 400's down at my local dealer and they look the dog's danglies!

(It's a sport auto too - 36K delivery mileage only. Mmmm.... )

This doesn't normally happen to me but the dealer has rung to say its already delivered and being prepped picking her up on Saturday

As for the 18's had a look through some photos and off course your right! Is it me though or does the 5 spoke exacerbate it?

A 328i M Sport with auto box and paint is only 34300 so that car must have a shed load more options to make it the price it is.
Sounds a bit pricey to me for a pre ordered car that already has options spec'd out on it.......

Was so busy drooling over the colour and the wheels that I didn't notice if it had stuff like Pro Nav which would push it up to about 36K. Note to self... must pay more attention when checking out other motors
