440I GC x-drive - new vehicle configuration 19" vs 18"

Sorting through a build on a 2019 440I X-Drive. I drive 20K plus miles a year.
It will be a pretty loaded M-Sport.

1. I am trying to decide whether to go with 19" wheels for the better look versus 18"s which I think ultimately handle better.

2. The other decision I wrestle with is Track Handling Package (definitely 19"s if I go this route, not a fan of the 18" wheels in this package). Cosmetically I really like the no fog light look (wish I could simply delete fog lights as stand alone!), but worry about excessive brake dust from the M-Sport brakes (I believe BMW has finally cut back brake dust on standard brakes). If I don't go Track Handling, I'll add add adaptive suspension (hopefully - as it doesn't slow up as optional on current configuration tool).

That's your answer. 18" are less likely to suffer pothole damage as and ride better as well.

Dont waste money on 19" wheels. They are very very heavy and can be replaced with some lightweight aftermarket or OEM M4 wheels. Get the adaptive suspension as that can not be retrofited later and is a relatively cheap and impactful option.
