My friend has a 2002 GTI 1.8T with the 5 spoke 17" wheels and I did a photoshop and it looks as if they'd look reaaaaally nice on my stock 525i. I was wondering, since we don't live within a few minutes of each other, if the lug pattern ont he GTI 1.8T is the same as mine by any chance... I'd like to buy them off of him. Thanks

His car/my car...tell me how you think it'd look

no the gti has a 5x100 bolt pattern and your beemer is 5x120 and the offsets are all wrong cuz the gti is FWD and your RWD
later

i'd get some new 540i rims if i were you. beamer rims on a dub is blang blang. dub rims on a beamer is a shame.

Yeah Im saving for M5 18x9" with the insane dish... but I was thinking if I could get those GTI wheels to fit, I could save myself the $1800 and it'd be great...

Im just a bit concerned with the M5 wheels that I'd have to
A) Lower the car because of the 15" -> 18" conversion.
B) Change suspension so that car doesn't rub on 18"
C) Go for 17" M5 replicas

Yeah yeah, D's a baller - what else is new?

As for the Monte Carlos, they're sweet wheels (I have them), but 7" wide wheels on a 5 series is a bit weedy IMO.
