Simples.... Just powdercoat your 436M's then or get a BMW centre badge sticker to put on your third party wheels :)

I think the standard wheels will look a lot smaller in black though!

All black wheels can appear smaller than their brighter counterparts :)

It's the gloss thing, it also makes your tyres look grey. Odd but it bugs me. I'd go matte or satin if black.

Yeah you're right and they look tiny on that AW, just doesn't do it justice kind of thinking 3 spoke now or alternatively slim spokes like Sootys

I really like the 386m, nice with a colour change.

Nice they would look sweet in gloss black, not quite as nice as the M5 alloys but still nice - do they go straight on?

What roof spoilers this? Schnitzer or possibly 3D Design? Quite fancy beefing up the otherwise bland rear end!!

Can't find any decent pics of them on a M135i, but if I ever get around to replacing wheels (doubt it) I'd run to 3sdm and look at the 0.01s. Really like the look of them.

Easier to clean, sexy concave, a very BMW OEM look and you'd get a decent gorp at the calipers and huge discs through those spokes too. Maybe a smoked chrome or gunmetal grey finish..
