I have the 18" on my E46 coupe sport and find the ride quite hard (bordering on too hard). The 19" wheels look fab but as you say they will break something in the car or driver driving round England on our roads.

I agree with your conspiracy theory regarding the wheels but 1200 is a bit steep for a poorer ride and high kerbing probability
