Very well executed. I would have like to have seen some pics of the conversion. I can't imagine that being an easy bolt up.

I have always though that if BMW did one thing right, it was their wheels, even under Bangle. The 6series coupe has some fantastic wheels, I actually like the looks of that coupe, not enought to choose it over a CL, but it has some great artistic design to it.

I agree that BMW does make some of the BEST factory wheels around. I would be hard pressed to replace them with aftermarket, but knowing they belong on a BMW they look out of place on the Mercedes is all.

True, not to mention they have different lug patterns

CLS is ugly. A banana turned upside down driving down the road, reminds me of the Oscar Meyer Weiner mobile everytime I see one. CLS will look terribly dated fast as it is just a trendy, bullshit car.
