A lot of guys that have 19"x9.5" M5 reps in back have a 38 offset. Since I'm getting the same tires as you with the 19" wheels, I was curious about your wheel gap.
Last time I measured between my tire and fend I had somewhere between 2.5 to 3 inches but I measured a while back and the car is settling. I am out of town until next Saturday so I can give you an accurate measurement when I get home

Does it really look that more purple than blue, or is she just messing with the colors for effect?

I was pretty impressed with shivaswrath's review and if for any reason my ride is not to my expectations its on BMW.
the additional 10mm will really partner nicely with the rims...LOVE the rims BTW!

Just an update: ride is awesome, was in Manhattan, no issues driving around, it's as harsh over bumps/poor roads/$hitty NYC roads as any car I've driven. Drive home on Westside highway - smooth as butter, corners with aplomb.

That's the lighting, definitely doesn't look that purple

I LOVE EB2 at dusk and at night much better than during the day. When the sun is off of it it has a very rich look that is just awesome. Great pics.....
