Lightbulb Paris 2012: F11 5 Series Touring on Liquid Black Style 356 Wheels

Paris 2012: F11 5 Series Touring on Liquid Black Style 356 Wheels
25
COMMENTS

One of our favorite cars of the BMW display at the 2012 Paris show is this cashmere silver F11 5 series touring sitting on a set of 20" V-Spoke Style 356 wheels in Liquid Black finish. The upsized wheels fill out the F11's fenders very nicely and the liquid black wheels look great contrasted against cashmere silver.

The price on these 356 wheels are not for the weak-hearted however, as they are listed (MSRP) at $839 for the fronts and $865 for the rears (as listed in this recently released 6 Series accessories brochure).

F11 520d at 2012 Paris Show

I've always liked the style 356 wheel on the F10/F11

Liquid black finish looks awesome

Wheels look great. Coil-overs are in order here.

Now it just needs tint, and a slight drop in the front.

That is an effin' awesome car. I love wagons for the utility - had an '11 A4 Avant before coming to the Bimmer. With the the looks of that F11, I'd gladly go back to the lift-gate rear-end, especially as spiced-up as those wheels make it.

356 Ftw!
Shadowline trim plus a drop would make this F11 perfect.

Wheels are too aggressive for the car without M Sport and a Performace Brake Kit

Last time it was the 535i xDrive, so expect it THAT way.

Liquid black is a little lighter then gloss black. It looks silver from different angles.
