Another smokey day in CA

I was going stir crazy and had to get out yesterday. The pictures were taken mid-afternoon although the light makes it look much later.

This is MONEY!! The gold 763's look fantastic...classy and understated, no wheel gap, and not to mention much easier to clean than the stock 788 rims.

How is the Remus Race sound w/ the OPFs?
Thank you!

Wouldn't know. My car is US Spec, so no OPF. I like the Remus sound, though.

Cleaned the new wheels since install today. Super easy compared to 788M.

Looks great!

I am thinking about the same wheels for my SO M2C... the frozen gold.

I am on M Performance coils and 10mm Future Classic spacers as well.... so very similar to you.

Would be nice to see more Sunset Orange M2C pics with the 763m Frozen Golds.

I was next to a 2021 HS M2C and a Titanium Silver E36 M3 at Cars and Coffee. The 2021 looks a lot lighter in the photograph.

Last photo is a great comparison of the black vs. silver wheels on HS.

I used to be on the fence with silver vs "black" 788 wheels. In photos, I actually preferred the silver. However, I ended up ordering my 2021 M2C with the black wheels. While the car was already in production, I had second thoughts and seriously regretted my choice.

Fast forward to collection day. I saw the "black" wheels for the first time in person (because local dealerships only had the silver wheels on their M2C) and I knew instantly that I made the right choice. They are absolutely stunning and nowhere near "black". More like gunmetal or shadow chrome. In direct sunlight, the wheels look more silver than gunmetal and remind me of the factory 18" on the e46 M3, which I adored.

Long story short, I prefer the black wheel option, especially on HS. This car already has a blacked-out theme throughout, which is why I think the darker wheels are a better match.

I waffled back and forth between the wheel color options (and also the blue vs orange interior) for quite some time. The most frustrating part as you mentioned is the lack of options in stock at dealerships to take a look in person. I ended up ordering the black wheels since there are no other chrome elements on the car.

I fully agree, and not only are the 788s beautiful, black version is stunning and very fitting on this car. Just a bear to clean, but it really is a beautiful design

After one drive after washing your car, the wheels become matte black. Really surprised at the amount of brake dust that accumulates

Yeah, I love the stock 788 rims. I know that it's not a popular thing to say around here, but I adore these wheels and can't see myself getting rid of them. To me, visually, a rim must match the body lines of the car. BMW designers did an amazing job in that regard. The trade off is that it's a pain to wash due to the number of spokes.

I think the 788 look OK and strangely enough my wife really likes them. But the first time I washed these wheels I knew I was going aftermarket.
