Corr Blimey! That's a bit special inn't it? C'mon Bud, you're not gonna get off that lightly. Tell us the deets - 550 by the tailpipes?; colour (Havana Brown or Bronze Metallic?), drop (ACS or H&R)?; rims (they can't be Schnitzer or Breyton)?

550? Yes.
Havana Brown? No, neither is it Bronze Metallic. It is Champagne Quartz Metallic with Individual Interior (Merino Platin with Satin Walnut Wooden Panel)
Drop? H&R.
Rims? Schnitzer? A big no. It is Breyton GTR in staggered setup 9x21 and 10x21.

Gorgeous car! I'll be in Germany for a couple of weeks in June, (don't worry, I'll keep the left lane clear for you)...

To be frank I'd rather enjoy cruising than racing on the Autobahn. Unless the lane is completely free it is quite stressing to drive fast thoroughly.
Driving 160-200 km/h and enjoying the quiteness of the 8 cylinders as well as listening to the B&O are simply splendid!

Snap! Very refined colour combo. You must be happy with the rims too. Tell us how you specked them as they look like they are polished lip with satin centres (thought they only did Hyper Silver). Did you request a specific lip as I know Breyton don't vary their offsets. I'm curious as they look great. Congrats Bud

Hi there. As a matter of fact Breyton offers the rims only in 3 variants: Hyper silver (mine), matt gun and matt black. All those variants comes out with polished steel lip.
That being said it is only for the model Race GTR. Race GTR is as far as I know the only Breyton model with the high gloss polished steel lip in 21 inches.

By the way many thanks for your comment! Yes I am very happy with the Breyton. At first I wanted Alpina 21" so badly, but the Alpina is simply too pricey even for gold
And worst it has no paper for F10 (only for F01in 21"). So troublesome in Germany

Thanks StreetCruiser. That made me take a closer look at the 3 piece as I had only been focussing on the monoblock. The GTP is similar design but flush faced whereas the GTR has that nice dish. By the way, do you find it hard to keep the centre bolts clean as I imagine brake dust gets in there? Also what tyres did you end up running front and back?

O yes cleaning the bolt is quite a pain. I used a high pressure water cleaner to get the dust out of there. As for tyres I am running the Dunlop Sport - not very recommendable since they are quite loud particularly compared directly to the original RFT 19" tyres (Dunlop Sport Maxx GT).
The GTP is also fine. But at the end the GTR attracted me at the most.
I also considered the LS which resembles Alpina quite but somehow I am not feeling it perfectly.

Btw, neither GTR nor GTP is 3pc rims. They are 1 piece with the look of 3pc.
IMHO no one needs those multi piece wheels... too expensive and not relevant for daily drive. Unless you drive frequently on the race track ;-)

Man, that last picture (front 3/4 from down low) is such an awesome angle, probably the best for this car. Gorgeous, congrats.

Admittedly lips are quite old-fashioned nowadays - a 90's relict, indeed.
But since (almost) every modded F10 has concave and lipless wheels I decided to take it, however.

My outmost favourite rims are HRE but they are too expensive and have no paper for Germany (so-called TÜV certificate).

Thanks mate! The F10 with M Sport Package is IMHO the best-designed 5 series ever made besides E39 M Sport Package (which I also had before this F10). It always has a good angle to photograph. The only downside of the F10 is the nose... somehow it looks so funny in my eyes

Thanks remmib! Hey, you also have a gorgeous F10! Obviously you have a high taste in modding the car! Not too obtrusive and not too conservative!
You simply hit a gold with your mod! Love your setup! Brilliant!

I can see how the bolts could be decorative. And I read they are referred to as a faux 3 piece but surely they must be at least a 2 piece as the spokes/centre look as if they aren't moulded as part of the outer rim?
