Thoughts on the BMW Performance wheels for E9x. . . .

For those of you who have them:

How do you like them? Is there any performance difference?
How about the speedo? Does it need to be re-calibrated from stock? (I know its only one inch bigger, but I thought I would ask)
How do they ride? And how soft are they?

And any other general comments would be greatly appreciated. . .

Thanks
