Keep my 'old' Breyton Magics, or the new 225m?

I have an AW 335 convertible on order.
I was going to put the Breyton Magic wheels which are on my E46 cab on the new car.
Everyone I talk to says that I am mad, the 225m's look better and they are brand new like the car.
I need to decide quickly, as the E46 is sold and the guy wants the rims. He won't pay me anymore for them, but another guy want's the original 17" that came with the E46.

I would keep the Breytons myself. What size are they? 18's or 19's? I run the Breyton Visions myself and like them. I use my stock 18's for tracking etc or last year, threw winter tires on them!

225's are rare and beautiful
But don't give away the Breyton's for free either

breyton may look better in certain conditions, though 225Ms are a sure bet they will look good all the time.
