Does anyone have E92 with Style 157 Wheels?

Hi guys.

I recently placed my order for the E92 and decided to keep the stock Light Alloy Star Spoke Style 157 rims that came with it.

Does anyone have these wheels on their car and have pictures? I am curious as to what they look like. I am concerned they may not be big enough and want to have enough time to change my mind.

If you could post your pictures that would be awesome!

Cheers

Judging by the amount of replies i've received, is it safe to say that either nobody likes these rims or they suck?

Just don't want to regret sticking with the standard rims, personally i thought they looked ok in the brochure but you never can tell until you have seen them on the actual car......anybody??

here you go..hope this helps. Honestly though, if you still have the time to change it, I would. I find the other rims much better looking. But of course, thats just me.

Cheers for that. It was actually pics of an actual car with the actual wheels on that i was interested in, not a simulation, but thanks anyway.

I really like the look of the rims, i was just concerned about the size.

I like it although the 18" looks a lot better. But 17" is still nice and does not look that small. U can always purchase 18" later on

if it's a cost issue, then it's understandable. if not, get the 18s or you'll regret it later down the line. the 18inch 189s look similar, but better than the ones you're getting on your car. 17s look very small on the e92s.

i would suggest sticking with 157 wheels and then just paying an extra $1000-1500 later on to buy the wheels you like. The 157's are good for winter use. if you chose 18's from the dealer, you have to pay extra $1000, Lose your 157's, AND only be able to drive on those tires for summer. so its a much better investment to keep the 157's and buy the 189's separately.

my car on the way has the 157s on them. I don't find them to be the prettiest things on the planet, but they are not horrible and will be fine for the winter. When summer rolls around i plan on buying something nice.

I agree with you guys, they may not look as good as the other stock wheels but definitely make for great winter wheels+tires. There is also another set of stock wheels which i believe come with the 328xi. Those look alot better, i wish i wouldve had the option...
