it actually does...if you've seen the Picture Perfect Motoring (PPM) Navy Blue Benz CLK320 with matching PPM Navy blue center wheels with chrome lip then you'll know how good it looks...
i think Mo Pete did that with his 740i that was on display at Importfest 2003 it actually looked good

I voted Hartge but if I still don't like them.

Go with the 18" M-Parallel's, colour match the spokes, do the suspension, and spend the money you saved on the wheels and get a euro six speed manual tranny!

I started a photochop thread to see what the M-Parallel's look like with colour matched spokes. Dunno if I it will look like crap or not...well Gamite's car looked good!

You should get pics of those rims on the exact same car/angle. Really hard choice.

I have a 740i with M-parallel's and if I painted the spokes body color, it would make the rims look a lot smaller. They're only 18's.

I vote Hartage although Kineisis, Fiske, IForged or HRE would be good alternatives
