You wanted pics - you got pics (lots of them !) :D

 

Absolutely :wub: the overseas E60s . That boy Chris Bangle done good 8)...very good !

 

Ageless...easily makes newer cars look old.

 

Gorgeous White E60 with the smoked172s under the flyovers.

 

Enjoy

Hi,

 

'Best' is quite open to interpretation !

 

For me, 'best' is a combination of an amazing/sublime looking style/design, very high strength and engineering, lightweight compared to oem.

 

Here's a post I made over on M3cutters last year following my visit to MFest - there's a few E60's I took pictures of :) i'll directly link to some more in this thread later

Also, some nice pictures here in the E60 section;

Cheers, Dennis!

Other than having a soft corner for the m167s, I agree that the 172s are the best looking STOCK wheel for the E60. Just a shame that they are also the worst EVER oem wheel for cracks, buckles and splits :roll:.

^^ just a guess but possibly too much silver against too much silver ! IMHO gunmetal, smoked, anthracite, diamond cut etc is ''where it's at'' when it comes to nice cars like BMWs and the like. Standard plain silver is a bit old skool and a tad yesterday though like I said that's totally my personal opinion.

I think it is Sepang. I was followed by a new 3 series that was Sepang, looked like crappy brown but in the correct light, stunning.
