Are they 17" or 18"? Hard to find 18" wheels with an offset and width to suit the M135i

These two colours are my favourite ones for the F20 so it is a tough choice. I still prefer the Estoril Blue, as it is my favourite BMW colour (along with Alpina Blue and Green!). Personally, I would go hands down for the Estoril Blue as it looks fantastic, especially with M-Pack.

Mete001, can you tell me the widths and offsets of your 19"s please. I would love to get some and have found some 9" wide ET 47 wheels, but I am really not sure if they will fit, with out rubbing.

thanks

Why not check out both at the same time
Dirt is not as visible on white cars, but I still go with Estroil Blue.

It is still a small car
The small model you have in picture does not make M135i appear bigger
