Had me worried for a moment then :D

I've not seen another 1 series on the road with these wheels... they make look the 1 series look a very smart car indeed (not that it isn't of course).

And coupled with the M Sport Suspension, it should look quite nice!

Are these available 2nd hand at all? I would hate to think how much BMW would charge for them as an after thought! I think they were a 750 pound option from the factory?

Don't recall the 208m's being a £750 option, thought it was more like £550, but I could be wrong. Just wasn't a question for me though as it transforms the look of the 1er into something more aggressive IMO

I was talking about the 217 wheels... I think they were 750.

Actually just checked my invoice. 795!

I really like those rims too! You have to show us some pictures of them on your car.

I think those rims look larger than most of the other 18s. Which I think is a nice thing.
