Exclamation WANTED!!! Pictures of 19 inch E92 M Sport Coupe Alloys

Have bought an E90 335i with 'little' 18's and im desperate to fit bigger 19" alloys.

Apparently there are pictures of the 19" Alloy that is to be offered with the new E92/3 M Sport varients floating around the internet somewhere but im damned if i can find them www.bm3w.com apparently

If anyone could point me in the right direction id be very greatfull.

Thanks
Lee

see thats the thing... im not sure if they are the wheels or not.

Apparently BMW are releasing a new 19" alloy when the M Sport Coupe is released.... so im told....

The answer lies on www.bm3w.com under forthcoming models but it wont let me look..... the 179's are v.nice still.

Liking that 19" 225..at last a decent factory fit wheel for the coupe...pity the M-sport body kit is not up to the same standard.

Unlikely to change as I'm finding the ride on my 17"s a bit nuggety ..perhaps I'm getting old.

I must be as I bought a diesel auto

That could be the sports suspension you have. I find the ride on 18's with non sports suspension quite good.

If I ever did buy another E90/E92/E93 in M-sport variation, I would take off the sports suspension if possible.

Remember to tie your trims on with cable ties to stop people stealing them.

They are about a tenner at Halfords you know

Are you an i-mac user Viv??? We have a mac mini in the office which is great and I'm sooooo tempted to buy a white MacBook. They are lovely machines.
