Still loving my M3 V8, its changed a bit since buying from BMW and today saw as land mark for being as far as I can go before invalidating my BMW Warranty.

Just fitted 20's Thumb

I prefer the look of the 19s myself. For me the 20s just look like you are trying to cram too much wheel in to too small a space end up with rubber band tyres on them. So long as you are happy with it then it is spot on. I am still drawn to the M3 V8, I will try one one day....

I agree 19" look better and bit more aggressive in a way,
But that's just my opinion of course.

Not a bad companion that to your (filthy) turbo.

Out of interest, what sort of fuel economy do you get from it?

I get that, but in the metal the 19's just look overwhelmed.

I can never get a shot of this car that shows what its actually like in the metal. So frustrating. If you saw it I think you would understand. Thumb

Just a tad too big, make the car look a little "cartoony". 19's with a little stancing from springs and spacers works great IMHO. I agree standard can look a bit 4x4.

This is mine, not the best angle but you get the idea.

@M corn, drive one...wonderful motor.

We all like different stuff Thumb

No worries thanks for posting the picture, as it demonstrates what I was not happy with.

20's all day long for me, the car looks stunning . I am assuming you have driven the saloon/coupe version of that model so how does the drive compare , much body flex etc ? I am thinking of buying a 4 seater cab and the M3 has always been a favourite of mine .
