Yes I agree, the wheels make a huge difference, and IMHO it's the wheels that don't look right on this M-Sport Coupe. Strange, because the same style looks good on the M-Sports saloon. I think the Coupe needs wheels with more of a "dished" look to them, and somehow those in the picture look "flat" to me.

I think I actually prefer the look of the 18" 189 style wheels, which is just as well because that's what I've got on my car, and the 19" 230's look wicked too. I was quite worried that when the M-Sport came out, I was going to wish I'd waited, but actually I'm quite pleased with my 335d SE - no expensive bodykit upgrade required (phew).

Don't the M-Sport models all come with M-Sport lowered and stiffened suspension?
