New wheels for car - gained an inch

I picked these up today, Jade R 19" with 10" rears so more concave on the back

I normally put OEM wheels on my BMW's and have also had most of them gloss black, but this time I just 'fudge it - i'm going aftermarket and i'm going hyper silver'. Not sure why, but glad I did, I haven't been this happy with a set of OEM's before, possibly because I am actually a bit of a chav deep down and like a bit of an aftermarket look

Not to everyone's taste I'm sure as most people prefer OEM styles, but I just wanted to share for your viewing pleasure

Here it was before on some poor replica Alpina 18's with a terrible offset on the rear (as I bought it)






Here's the new:

Lol, 320d with the 335 rear (no badges - I don't like the idea of trying to be something else, but the dual pipes do look good) all done by previous owner in any event.

Its an SE actually, with factory h/l sport seats with lumber and elec. adjust side bolsters, and the M Sport exterior kit added by first owner. Its even on standard SE suspension I believe.

Liked the concavity of rears.

Don't be sorry, it's your opinion. I posted up to entice discussion, good or bad.

The stance looks good especially if it really is standard se suspension - would have thought the car would sit higher than that

Yeah, not sure what is going on - I got the spec printout from BMW, no mention of sports suspension on it, the spings look like std BMW (black, no logo on them) so I doubt they're after market.

They could be sport springs perhaps, or just SE which have sunken due to mileage

Its very comfy which suggests SE to me but the ride height isn't super high.

When I compare, it looks lower than an SE but still not as low as a sport I think.
