Estoril Blue M235i with some M Performance parts

BIMMERPOST
     Featured on BIMMERPOST.com
My new M235i with some M Performance Parts! But why have BMW fitted run flats on MPerformance 19 rims?

Beautiful. I'm not in love with the rim style, but they work with the M perf theme. I'd swap out for the black grills too.

Gorgeous car. Sucks about the run flats. You spent a lot of money, maybe they'll swap you out?

Congrats Active. She looks great!
Do you have the rocker panel blades? I can't tell...looks like you have the decals without the blades which is what I'm considering.

I am going to buck the trend and say that I like the rims. I have no idea why they put run-flats on them, though.

+1 on the tires - that makes no sense to me.

I think they might take some getting used to, for me, on the EB, but I am wondering how they might look on my BSM....

The 19' really fills out the well much better, no matter what though...

When I looked at this post on my phone, I tried to see if the blades were there and I couldn't tell, but looking at the pics on a good monitor I can clearly tell the black panel blades are there. Good stuff.

I'm not sure it does fill out the wheel-well any better than 18". The overall diameter should be the same, but the lower profile tire might have that visual effect.

Jason recently posted the prices for the Mperf parts, and the 19"s cost $4,100! Anyway to get an upgrade (from stnd 18"s to 19"s) at the factory level for say an extra $500? Otherwise, I'd pass. My dealer says no such option available, but things can change quickly.

Perhaps - plus the fact that there's "more" wheel in the same amount of space - to me, it looks more balanced with the 19' wheels...would definitely like to see this in person as well.

That's an insane amount! On the E92 M3 for example, the original 19' upgrade was in the ~$1200 range if I remember correctly. But the car only came with one set of wheels - since we are now looking at them as a totally separate option, that must be why the total cost is so damn high...

I am warming to the stock 18s but still wish I had the option of picking the car up with 19s from the factory...

Is it me or are the mirror caps more aerodynamic than the standard m235i mirror caps?

That's sweet man, I like the front. Have you considered the rear diffuser?

What did you use to paint match the body parts on the front and the rear? Vinyl wrapped or did you get them sprayed?
