Make sure they are 5 X 112mm PCD with 66.6mm centre hub. Also, you will need extended bolts of minimum 10.9 SGS grade of M14 X 1.25mm.

15mm fronts & 20mm rears are just perfect as it does not run the fenders when the suspension compresses on bound or rebound, and does not touch fender liners on full turns.
Spacers are adding a lot to the looks for sure.

I'm thinking of getting as well but I've 20" 759 wheels. You think I can still go with 15mm front and 20mm back?

thanks!!!

Mine is being built next week. 530e. Bluestone Metallic exterior, mocha nappa interior with leather dash and rhombical aluminum trim. Can't wait but I am hoping for a delivery sometime in December (it has to get from German plant to port to ship to California to port work to truck to my dealership). Lots of toys on the order.

Installed the black grill on mine - not sure whether it was a move in the right direction. What do you think?

My bluestone metallic 2018 530e (with Night Blue Dakota leather and poplar gray wood trim) just touched US soil after several weeks on the water. Needs a few days to get to dealer, get prepped, etc. Just in time for me to take an unrelated business trip to Munich. Turns out my company's Germany office is 2.9 miles away from BMW HQ ... so maybe I will stop by . Excited to take delivery when I get home end of March and I will post pics here! Love the exterior color, great choice everyone.

I had to cancel my European Delivery order of a Med Blue 540i, but picked up this beauty locally. I was not excited about the color in photos but fell in love when I saw it in person with the 20" wheels and side sill extensions. So classic with its black nappa leather, reminds me of my father's 735iL in my youth.

I'm one of those minorities who think the black grill make it too big ... I'd rather keep the original but most folks will tell you otherwise ... great ride anyway

Love the fact that my commute is 100% covered by the energy directly from the sun ... my house is completely solar powered.

Solar panel -> car. Literally harnessing our nearest star every day to power my bimmer. Ha!

Performance wise it's great. No complaints. You can drive easy and smooth and have zero carbon footprint, or you can drive aggressively and enjoy the "BMW" feeling on demand and still get great mileage.

Kind of fun to have a terrific luxury car and be kinder to the planet at the same time.

Metallic blue rocks.

Interior: Night blue Dakota leather multi contour seats, and gray poplar wood trim.

Options include:

Drivers Assistance
Drivers Assistance Plus
Premium package 2
Executive package (many 7 series creature comforts)
Other assorted goodies

This is a lovely color, I actually painted my brake callipers in it and see them change color depending on lighting conditions (bluish in sun, grayish in overcast). Looks very good with gloss black trim OR chrome. Has a perfect contrast balance with either, which is rare. Usually you can go with one trim or the other and lose or gain contrast but here its perfect.

I like Bluestone on my 540i, yet it seems too subtle for the M5. Not that I'd kick it out of my garage.

Bluestone suffers greatly from the inability to get close to catching its true colors in photos...i had seen enough decent photos to pull the trigger on bluestone with night blue interior and matte wood trim. I got the car tuesday, black kidneys.... AND I COULDNT BE MORE THRILLED the color is amazing and the interior something was concerned over has not stopped being complimented by any and all that see it... i loved the night blue and the matte wood but no one had them together on floor and wow!!!!!! i think the more black trim added to this car the more powerful the color becomes...love it.
