I hate to tell you this Steve but Fiske has been making a wheel that looks so much like the new M5 wheel it is scary for about 7 years. Maybe it's Fiske that should have gotten the copyright. The only differnce is that the Fiske is chrome and chrome looks cheaper.

I'm not exactly enamored with the smoked look of the new M5 wheels anyway (in pictures). It comes too close to being chrome but, I will admit that I have not seen one in person. I am sure they are stunning in the flesh. BMW would never (at least to date) put something on such a great car that didn't look good in person!!!

88M5 currently for sale--> :-[

: I wish they could copyright the design! Then there won't be any "pretenders." I have an M5 on order (4th on my dealer's list should get me a car sometime in spring). It would cheapen my M5 if you put the same rims on a 528 or 540.
