162 alloys - uh oh...

Saw a black 325i SE on an 06 plate yesterday witn the 162 style alloys (ellipsoid, 18") and it looked very good...

Should anyone see any for sale, can they let me know...!

Prefer them to M Sport alloys myself - more subtle and...

...they look easy to clean!

I remember.. both look really smart and understated.

I do find the MSport wheels too fiddly - might need a new set soon with these damaged a fair bit.
