Anyone ever put a set of OEM style 162 on a 328xi?

I was thinking about getting a set of 162's (18") on my '07 328xi. I have sport package, but the brakes being almost 2 inches smaller in diameter, might make the car look goofy.

Anybody have any pics of a 328 or 325 with stock brakes and 162's?

Of course, I could use this as an excuse to upgrade the brakes. Anyone ever done that? I would want the stock 330 or 335 brakes, if I did that. I would think that I could still fit the stock style 159 (17") rims with those larger brakes on, right? I'd want to be able to do this every winter.

Ska, thanks for the pics. Can I bother you for a shot of the whole car from the side? I'd like to see how it fills the wheel arches. Also, I wonder if it sits up higher than a 330 or 335 with 18's.
