First of all, which entity is "in person," the wheels or the observer? Pretty hilarious contortion if you ask me.
Now, I have seen photographs of the wheels, and I have seen the ACTUAL wheels. Guess what? They look EXACTLY the same. (Oh, I guess the pictures are smaller!)
Now really, if you had a choice, would you actually choose those wheels? I think what's happening is you are rationalizing your decision to buy the sport package including those (ugh) wheels.
No offense to those who like the wheels, but how many posters to this website have expressed an interest in buying them? Personally, I wouldn't even want them as my winter wheels. I'll bet you won't see them as an offering on the 2000 models.
