Yes, I had 18" wheels on it. The ride is what you would expect if you've ever had 20" wheels. You definitely feel every bump in the road....not nearly as luxury (pillow) feeling. With that said, it's not bad...just a different more sporty feeling ride. You definitely give up some cushion for looks. For me, it's not a bad trade-off because the look is important to me. The ride is still great because it's a BMW....but there is a trade-off. Hope that helps.

Spoiler looks cool. adds some aggression. I like that Spoiler and the hamann bumper.

I think this is the only BLACK GT with the AC Schnitzer spoiler...I've seen nothing but the White car on line, and it really didn't pop for me until I saw it in black. Very nice.

Did you paint your brake calipers or is that an aftermarket kit? If paint, what did you use? Did you remove completely? I wondering if the M5 Brake kit fits the GT and if not, trying to at least color match the blue w/ the M5 logos.

Garage List
The BMW 5GT is very dependant on the right exterior color, interior trim, alloy combo to 'pop' and Sapphire Black, Alpine White and Space Grey are about the only colours that work. I wouldnt get the car in anything less than 19" - mine run on 20" and i love it.

I have a set of HRE wheels from E93 M3. Will they fit on 550i GT?

Rear spolier totally transformed the look of the car. Nice looking!
