Thanks.

Other than the looks, what are the benefits of the M359? When I took a wheel off to check something, I was amazed at how light my 19s seem compared to huge wheels I've had in the past, which makes me want to stick with them.

The 220s are forged and the 359s are not so they'll be slightly heavier, BUT, forged or not the 220s are hideous and your car will look so much better on 359s!

It'll change from looking like an old mans bmw to a sporty one immediately

That answers it for me then, the 220s it is.

I once had a racebike that had a non-painted fibreglass fairing on it for most of the season (with several crashes under its belt, held together with cable ties in places). People used to refer to it as 'the nail'. It went a shed load better than it looked.
