one somehow doesnt get a sense of the real greats in the Grand Tourer segment with this Beemer when seen in the flesh.

or it may be that it would look better in a rich colour rather than plain boring white.
.I too spotted the Golden GT today which also KA-51 reg. It really does not look all that impressive.IMHO a 5 series sedan catches the eye more than this.

The GT looks sweet. I liked it. If I had the money and wanted a car that served no purpose but yet should stand out of the crowd, I will definitely pick one up

The SLK badly needs better wheels. Is it the 350?

the gt is kind of unappealing to me. it looks like a mix-up of different series! what was bmw thinking when it made this one?
even i thought same till i saw one in flesh. looks good in flesh. May be its due to BMW badge?

Spotted a Cyenne-S other day in Silver near E-city.Looks awesome!

Even though not as appealing as the OE SLK350 rims, this looks good to me considering that the 200K comes OE with just plain aluminum rims. Way better !

Oops, My bad bro. My friend has a SLK350 in Trivandrum and these are the kind of rims on that car. That is why I mistook em for something else. Thanks for the correction bro.

This is the SLK200,not the 350.The 350 has larger,rectangular exhausts compared to the oval ones on the 200 as seen from the pic.Also,the 200 later came with these five spokers.

These rims also came in the 350 brother. I think you can order them in the options list.

The new SLK's come with similar exhausts i think and no these wheels are options and not standard with the 200. I shall post pictures tomorrow of a brand new SLK 200 that has just been PDI'd and of a 350 that has come for service. I shall know the difference myself too .
