The red and blck pics.

I have the 20" Y spoke which I like a lot. But the first pic I think I like a little more.

The wheels on the gray truck look too plain.

275 is the style that works for me.

I really like the 275 because of the 3D look and the unique look of where the spokes meet the rim. I hope to get the dealer to swap them onto my new ride when it comes in. I am waiting until the March builds to be able to get the new iDrive also.

I prefer the 215 Style in anthracite. I saw them in black, but the depth of the rims are completly gone. So i ordered the anthracite ones.

My only issue with the anthracite look is the wheels always look dirty compared to standard silver painted wheels. They look like they have brake dust all over unless you get up close.

I doubt they will just swap them out. They are a $5995 upgrade in accessories catalog

Colors just like style is an objective thing... I agree with you on the color black. I think that it just looks stunning, but then again, there are other people who pick different colors and they have a different point of view on black

Is there such a thing as black 215s?? I though they were only silver and anthracite??? I ordered the "black" ones thinking my dealer was referring to the anthracite ones...please correct me before I end up spending a fortune on the wrong wheel!! I have a black x6, what do you guys think would look best?

I believe they only come in two different colors, ferric grey or black.
