    Had My Wheels Painted

    so i had the wheels painted black. quality turned out excellent.

    while it made them look smaller (20inch) i think it suits the car and looks meaner....

    yay or nay ??

    Looks good. It does look more aggressive like that. What colour did you order for the M?


    Re: Had My Wheels Painted

    I am a fan of black wheels...but from the pics I am not sure it suits the car. There would be a need for some othe black parts

    Re: Had My Wheels Painted

    I like the look of dark wheels.  I think it works particularily well for silver, black or white cars.  Definitely gives the car a more aggressive, menacing look.  You are right though about making the rims seems smaller, just an illusion facilitated by the darks rims flowing into the dark color of the tires.

    i think that especially due to the black windo frames and the black plastic wheel-arch trims the black rims look good. 22''s would be better though but the ride would get too harsh. it's an suv after all and our roads are terrible.

    Re: Had My Wheels Painted

     Looks good.  Are you keeping this as well as the X6M?  If not, why are you painting this one?  I can't wait to drive the M.  Let me know your impression when you have driven one!

    thanks. i am selling the 50i. my production slot for the M is october. until i have it clear customs, registered etc is surely another 4 months....so i just thought why the heck not....and i am happy with the result.

    friend who is buying the car is rather conservative and and almost had a fit when i told him

    i am just gonna get him a set of rims as a bonus....

    Re: Had My Wheels Painted

    Hey our cars will be cousins then.  Mine is also October build, but I am not sure if the X5M and X6M are even built on the same production line.  And with the distance my car has to travel on water, I am also looking at 3-4 months before delivery.
