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.
Thanks. I think they would look great with this finish on your black car.

We actually weighed the stock wheels and tires and then the P44SC's at HRE:

Front stocks with PSS tires--- 51 lbs
Front HRE with PSS tires --- 46.2 lbs
Rear stocks with PSS tires--- 56.6 lbs
Rear HRE with PSS tires--- 51 lbs

These are very noticeable differences in unsprung weight.
