: : 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!)

: : John

: Hmm, John must inhabit the 2D world of the Simpsons. John, imagine a world where objects have depth - would not a 2D representation not lose something in the translation?

: Say hi to Bart and Lisa for me...

: Jeff - Donning flame suit and way cool 3D glasses!

Happen to be a fan of The Simpsons and appreciate that the mind recreates 3 dimensions when presented with perspective, which is inherent in most photographs.

I maintain that the photographs of the 323i sport wheels I've seen do an admirable job in portraying the real thing. Unfortunately.
