Car looks great!.! I think if you go with 22's get wheels with lip/step lip... Concave wheels are nice but there is like 5 f10 on this site that has similar concave wheels, Im not saying concaves wheels are bad, but something different would be nice. Again 22's look perfect in my eyes!! Keep up the good work.

Completely different modes of fast...

M3 = Almost track ready street machine

550i = Feel like a GT (a la Bentley GT)

Like you don't feel is any slower(straight-line) than the M3, despite the fact that it is a bit lower on power and a lot higher on weight?

HP - 414 VS 400
TQ - 298 VS 450

The best way I can describe it is that the M3 motor felt like a "V-Tec" V8 and the 550i feels more like a big displacement V8 (more low end torque)... like someone is pushing you from behind.

Don't get me wrong... I do miss the runs up to 8200rpm with the M3, but the 550i's power is more "relaxed"

I have always done things that most people dont like. I've never modified my cars to appease others tastes, just my own.

22x10.5/22x12.0 on my F50 Cima, Green wheels on my E92 M3 ZCP, etc...

This is what I think makes this world so enjoyable, diversity.
