Vic,

thanks for posting these. The P44SC's were also one of my wheels of choice for the F10 M5. They are a great looking lightweight monoblock wheel that really compliments the F10 M5 well. In my opinion they are not too gaudy, and actually offer a significant performance increase over the stock wheels, and I don't think that 3 piece wheels suit the F10 M5 well. I was recently informed that the stock 20" wheels for the F10 M5 are in the neighborhood of around 40lbs each with the tires attached. That's ridiculously heavy! Thank you for being the first one, that I know of, to pull the trigger and install the P44SC's on the F10 M5. I was worried about the looks, but they do look great! Congrats once again! Hope to see you at Cars & Coffee Irvine soon.

With the E60, it seemed to me that when you went from a 550i to an M5, while the leather and the sat-nav were the same, underneath, it was a completely different mechanical driving platform. With the M550i and F90 M5, that vast difference isn't really there.
