Wheel colours

Post by johnz3 » Sun 13 Jul, 2014 17:32

My 3.0i Sport has silver wheels. A light silver. I have often thought that they might look a bit more suited to the car if they were a darker silver. Saw a Z3M today up close today and the colour looked good. Do owners know if the Z3M wheels are a particular colour. if not I can always buy a darker silver. Thanks

The S50 has Chromeline finish and the S54 Shadowchrome.
Sapphire black/Imola red and black interior/ red roof/ S54 - the only RHD one made.

Ok and thanks. Is the Chromeline lighter than the Shadowchrome. Sounds like it should be.

If you pop into a BMW dealer, they usually have a stand in the sales area with the optional wheels available... you'll see the colour variation on them...just ask what the colour is you're interested in called... :wink:
