I have been seeing a few 540i sports with the 17" styling 32 wheel option and did not think much of them as the cars moved. Yesterday, I saw a new black 540i sport with the same wheels up close and must admit that they do not contribute to the agressive looks of the car. The wheels are polished (brilliant in BMW speak) and look like aftermarket jobs.
As you know, the 32's will replace the 19's as standard equipment for 1999. It is assumed that BMW made the switch primarily for cost cutting as the 32 is a lesser expensive wheel. I understand that BMW listens if enough of us voice our negative opinions about the switch.
