Cool 1M VO or AW with black rims?

Hi there

In the next months I'm getting my 1M (used) and i don't know in which color i should buy it.

Can you post here photos of VO and AW 1M with black rims?

Thank you in advance...


Best regards,

I'm planning on powdercoating/painting the stock wheels on my VO 1M black but I have to get my car first (hopefully today or tomorrow!). There haven't been many prior pics of VOs with black wheels, but a quick search led me to these:

Momo Style's 1M (http://www.1addicts.com/forums/showthread.php):






Djfactor's 1M:




hopofthese's 1M:





Let's see some more!

Thank you for the pictures.
It looks so damn good in VO and in AW with black wheels!

MPBK
In switzerland they produced as far as I know 150x 1M. At the moment there are about 15x 1M to buy used, priced around 67'000 - 85'000 CHF.

Thanks a lot

Best regards,

Get a set of M3 GTS wheels: these are exactly the same (359M), except for the black color.

Another VO with M3 GTS wheels (source: http://www.autogespot.com/bmw-1-seri...e-1/2013/09/01).

My personal preference for VO remains gunmetal: sporty look, but not as racy as black.

True that the M359 wheel (M3 GTS + 1M) is a great design, hard to be beaten by aftermarket wheel designers.

Its design seems to be clearly inspired by the cool E46 M3 CSL wheel.

Only regret: BMW should release a gunmetal version of both these wheels - that would be a sure-fire hit. Why did BMW miss out on that opportunity ?

Left: E46 M3 CSL wheel (M127) | Right: 1M wheel (M359):


Actually, there were two wheel codes for the CSL wheel:
- wheel code 127: original CSL wheel (235/35 + 265/30)
- wheel code 163: "CSL style" - "ZCP" - "Competition" (225/40 + 255/35)

VO and black zcp wheels is the best. I am getting mine powdercoated soon but haven't decided on a satin black for a super gloss. What do you guys think?
