Wheels: 19" SportLine vs. 19" M-Sport?

About to order an M-Sport and I'm thinking of opting for 19" Style-407 wheel upgrade option on the SportLine as opposed to the 19" M-Sport upgrade?

Basically is amounts to an M-Sport w/ SportLine 19" wheels. Both wheels are sweet to me but I kind of like the idea of having something slightly unique.

Thoughts?

I like the ones on the left...plus they will be easier to clean (less spokes). Then, you can wash them every other week with your MINERAL GREY MSport.

I think the one with less spokes looks better, its simple. Plus, coming from a guy who worked through college as a car detailer, less spokes is better.

You can't go wrong, they both look fantastic. I think the M sport wheel design is a little 'cleaner' though and I prefer that to the busier Sportline wheels (hence I've ordered the M Sport wheels for mine).

If you want to be unique order the cheapest, sell them and get a nice set of something aftermarket/unique.

Sportline 19s definitely, those M Sport ones look very similar to some of the optional 18s on the sport model so sort of dilutes the unique-ness.

Don't suppose there are any GD's out there trying to figure out how to kill this last hour of work.

Putting 19" style-407 SportLine wheels on a Sapphire Black M-Sport sure'd be fun wouldn't it?

Agreed!

The wheel on the right is too busy and not very attractive. Sometimes less is more!
