    Bought a brand new BMW M140i Shadow Edition:

    Just some quick pics I took after I got home.

    So far I'm loving it - it really is an awesome car (even though I'm keeping revs under 4000, it still moves like a rocket in sports mode).

    The ONLY thing I'm not certain on - this car originally came with the bicolour mags. On BMW configurator site, the black mags looked different to how they look in real life (and I really liked them in the pic, so told the dealership to change them out for the black ones). Do you guys like the current black mags or should I still try get the old, bicolour mags back (like the below picture)?:

    what a beauty. Most certainly glad I could help. Man that thing is gorgeous and you made the right choice, enjoy her. Canít wait for the review.

    Black wheels are more for sporty wheels imo. I would change them back to the standard colour. But can you do that now that you've driven with these on ?

    I would try to get the bicolour mags, but then again I pretty much don't like black mags on any car.

    As for the "careful in the wet" comments, sure don't do anything stupid, but as long as you keep the nanny aids on you should be fine as long as you don't do anything stupid. You will probably have some "oh ****" moments, but the car should keep you off the kerbs. Again, as long as you don't do something stupid at high speed.

    The Gauteng BMW car club has some skidpan events at Zartkops every now and then. It's a good opportunity to see just how safe or dangerous these cars can be in the wet.
