« on: May 09, 2014, 11:45:32 AM »
hi guys can anyone with the new f15 m sport 20 " alloys have a look behind the spokes and tell me if they are missing the grey or anthracite colour as mine are still silver behind the spoke not good for such an expensive option cheers

My silver sets are white behind the spokes so it sounds like a common theme?

Think of it as "two - tone"  :))
Current: F15 M50d Msport in Carbon Black
Previous: F15 30d Msport in Space Grey, E70 35d Msport, BMW 530i, Porsche Boxster, BMW 330Ci Sport and before that Vectra GSi, Chevrolet Lumina, Vauxhall Astras

It'll be allright in the end. If it isn't allright it isn't the end

just an update on the alloy wheels the dealer was told by bmw to order a new wheel in and compare with mine  it appears the new wheel is fully painted so a new set of four wheels are being ordered under warranty

cheers

Hi it's not bare alluminium just the grey is missing and a little rough which makes it hard to clean and bit naff looking when it is clean

Just thought I would add the wheels are still on back order no sign of delivery, mentioned today what would happen if I was to curb one in the mean time and the reply was they would have to look again at the warranty claim  >:(
