There is also a member on here who has theirs anthracite, or a gunmetal grey colour. They look fantastic.
please take time to just ask someone how they are. Kindness costs nothing, but means everything.

I have come to the conclusion that no matter how good a set of wheels look, if they are not easy to clean, it is not worth it!

Actually this is why I chose the 311 style wheels. ;)

The motorsport wheels on the LE look the best. Chap on here has them on his hatch with performance kit and it looks great!

Love the dished look of the rears, think they really suit the E87 hatch - mine need a refurb unfortunately :-(

I like my wheels :D Didn't choose them they were just on the car when I bought it last month.

Anyone have any idea what model number they are - just interested to know?

I think the 1 series looks good on any wheels if they are dark, not black though, unless going for the stealth black on black look.

In fact the only wheels I've seen on this thread that I'd leave are the 313's, very nice looking wheel 8)
