325 SP - Style 161

I have a 325i w/o sport package, however I want the 161 staggered alloy wheels. My dealer wants $2750 for the set (including runflats). Although I don't know for sure, I somehow think that's way too much for 17" wheels. I'd really appreciate it if someone could inform me of a better deal at another dealer.

Thank you so much.

Alex

What a ripoff! For that price, get a nice nice set of 18" aftermarket wheels! Sorry I don't know how much stock wheels cost at other dealers, all I know is taht dealers are asking WAY too much for stock wheels... enough to make me get aftermarket wheels instead that's for sure.

I receive my car on 7/20 and will be selling the wheels RIGHT AWAY! They will have 20 miles (dealership to house).

I'm willing to sell for $1,300 + Shipping.

Let me know if you are interested OR MAKE AN OFFER!

Thanks guys for the offers but I already made a deal with someone from Chicago. You're totally right - they mark the wheels up crazy style and then tell me they're giving me discount, but in reality they're still about 50% marked-up. In any case I was calling around and Circle BMW in NJ seems to have the most reasonable prices for a dealer.
