There waw actually a Hamann I liked but it was 18", and I wanted to stay with the stock (sport) sizes. I also say a Breyton that looked nice. But, suprise, suprise, it looked pretty much the same as the M-Technik double spokes. In any case, wheels+tires would go, what $2.5-3K. How much are you going to get for the stock, non-sport wheels and tires? Maybe a grand, if your lucky. So your still down $.5-1K, and you still have the grandpa seat that come standard.
Sorry, $1K (MSRP, can be haggled down) for the sport package is a deal.
: the M-Double spokes are M'Kay, but the choices u got outside of BMW are astonding. Who is talking only about looks here? There are wheels MUCH better looking and way more advanced (lighter,stronger etc) That anything BMW has to offer. BMW made the car, now get specialized alloy wheels from companies that make only one thing, wheels. And ACS, Hanmann are Damn good at it! Aswell, i have never seen a bmw wheel come close to anything BBS, acs or the Han's have to offer.
: : When through Wheel Rack and Wheel Power. Saw some that were okay, saw alot that were really ricey. Didn't see anything substantially better.
: : : : Okay maybe YOU don't like the M-Technik wheels. From what I've been reading, you are in the distinct minority. People have been waiting for the 328Ci Sport Package for a while now, mainly to get the wheel/tire combo (I'm not ignoring the seats. They are also an improvment for a sporting driver). These wheel are at least IMO, and probably that of many others, a significant improvement over the standard 328Ci wheels, and somewhat better than the 323Ci/328i sport wheels (seven spoke).
: : : : : : For those of the few, fine, and proud who have received a 328ci with the sport package, can you please post a couple different side profiles of your car. I've ordered a 328ci/w sport, yet have never seen one good picture of the wheels outside of bmwusa.com.
