125i M Sport - 17 inch or 18 inch?

I am shopping for my wife's car at the moment, and she's pretty set on the 125i. Has many people got the 18 inch with the M Sport pack as well?

Are there many people out there with the 125i without the Sports Pack? How does it drive without the Sports suspension?

Her spec is 125i AW/Coral Red, Step, Roof, Front PDC, Prof Nav and M pack.

She's not fuss on the 18, but I am worry about resale with only 17s later down the track.

ive got a 125i with the sport pack and would deff have to recommend the 18s. ive seen a few with the 17's and it almost looks as if they're running on spares, they just dont fill out the wheel arch enough.

My 125 without the sport pack but I have 18inch wheels. On one hand I'd read that 18 and sports suspension could be harsh, but on the other I did want the car to handle well. I decided to go 18 on standard suspension as a middle ground.
I am very happy with the ride and the handling, and I reckon the 18s look great. Mine is the Tahiti green if you want to see how it looks.

18 for sure, especially with the M Sports kit.
