My 2013 estoril blue F30 with M3 rims!

Finally got rid of the ugly 400M rims and wanted to share some pics!

I personally like the 400M wheels.

Those look good but aren't very open. Do you find that they cover up and hide those gorgeous M Performance Brakes?

But yea, I guess they do cover up the brakes. But something about my 400M rims was bugging me. Maybe it was the conti tires, but they look soo small and the tires had such huge sidewalls. Even compared to the Sport Line rims they looked small.

In the garage. My car's a lease. So I'll need to put them back on when I return the car in a couple years.

Yeah it could have been the tires. I've seen others comment that the design on the 400M wheels makes them look smaller than they really are.

The new wheels do look great, don't get me wrong. They just obscure those beautiful rotors and calipers a bit.

Sorry, I preferred the 400ms to your current setup.

What'd you do with your 400m rims? I thought you had a 19 inch set up these days

it's ok...but I've never liked older model wheels on new cars...makes them look dated IMO.

The main reason I did these is because they are forged and lighter than the 400M rims and they are unbelievably cheap to get. Also, I've always found 5 spokes to look better on coupes, and 7-10 spokes on a sedan. Just my preference.

I do.


I sold the 400ms to Shivaswrath which paid for my Forgestars.

It's the M colors...i had a vinyl shop cover up the red reflectors on the rear bumper so I had them add those colors as well. I saw people doing it in a few threads and I thought it was pretty nice looking.

They def look better than 400m, which look too small for this car. If you got a good deal on them, why not.
