: : 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.
