congrats accord_masters, nice choice of vehicles

I'm glad your getting the black interiors for the x5, they look so much more classy than beige!

post pics when you get the rides

Wow two top of the line Bimmers! 7 is a great car - all the goodies and size and yet it drives like a sport sedan. Congratulations AM.

How about Alpina wheels seen at BMW ALPINA - BMW 7 Series.

Didn't fancy or like the body kits from Alpina on this 7. They tend to take away the luxury charm of the car.

Great set of wheels man.
Many Congratulations.
But you should have had considered a Panamera Turbo or/and a Cayenne S seriously, considering the Performance advantage and no compromise on comfort attitude of both the Porsche's.

For sure my friend, with a beast like this the numbers dont matter. I could not let a fellow Bhpian down so did some research and yours will be the first in Delhi .

Since you would be slapping on the M kit for the car i would suggest you choose the wheels well. I dont know your wheel preference and the configurator does not allow me to cut paste the car. I can only give you the model nombers, you can ask your dealer to give you the cd to have a look. I feel these wheels would look good with the Alpine white you have chosen.

Here goes in order of preference.

Double spoke 238 comes in 17" upto 21"

Cross spoke 252 ferricgrey comes in 21"

Cross spoke 252 normal comes in 21"

star spoke 311 comes in 21" ( this is also available in chrome)

Radial spoke 252 comes in 19"

Congatulations AM. Awesome cars.

If you ask me the Hamann kit looks fabulous and gives the car a more aggressive stance than the M3. You should defenitely consider that. Also not many hamann kitted beemers around, so should be unique too.

Naahh... The Hamann kit is a little too over done ! Stick to the M, its sport but still maintains the elegance

As Rotorhead said, the M kit is increasingly becoming common.
And Bro, please recheck on the rims again, The Hamann kit deserves more aggressive rims. Please do reconsider.
Anyways congrats on your new additions.
