Chromed 162's....anyone have pics??

So my local dealer had in several new E90's in which they had the wheels chromed. They all looked awesome but they were charging $1900 extra just to chrome them. Does anyone have pics of the 162's(330 sport package) chromed? The dealer didn't have any of those chromed for some reason.

I have to agree, this is probably why the dealer didn't chrome any of the 162's. Not very good looking in that pic. The other 3 series wheels looked great tho.

i know most people arent a fan of chrome on e90's. i love chrome, and will mostly like be putting chrome on mine, but this really looks disgusting. maybe they just look really small in this picture. all rims need a lip. with or without chrome, all rims need a big, fat lip. and these have the opposite.

THe original 162s are the best... Chroming the wheels tends to take away from the beauty of the car itself...
