M135i F20 M Performance wheels installed

We have had a few F20 M135i's through and on this one we installed a set of M Performance wheels. I thought you guys may be interested in seeing what they looked like, even though they are only quick snaps i think you get the idea.

BEFORE,


AFTER

Looks good, why does the M135 come with such ugly wheels

photos probably don't do them justice, they aren't that bad a looking wheel, those cars go bloody well though...

They'r ok.... very clean looking (actually prefer the 'before' wheels).

There is an X1 in my street with the same Performance wheels on. I think concave wheels would look better... like the VMR 710's, as the car lacks an aggressive stance and these would help.

Not really a fan of either wheel. I reckon those 19" wheels look ridiculous big on the M135i (personal opinion).

Like the 20s on the 328/335 but not so much on the 135.

We liked the M135i so much we cancelled our Mini GP order today and........ Won't be buying a M135

I like the F20 too. I actually prefer the stock wheels to those 19"s, they remind me of the 19"s on the RS250.

Mate i reckon the M135i looks bloody fantastic. Its a very unique looking hatchback. Put it this way, every other hatchback is trying to look like a Golf, whereas the F20 stands alone and looks stunning in the M135i guise.

Compare apples with apples, sit it next to a STI hatch and then tell me which one looks better!

Looks nice. I think I saw this one driving in Caulfield yesterday? Didn't take notice of the wheels.
