Why can't the 344 M wheels come in 20" ?

I wonder what the difference between normal Imperial Blue and this "Brilliant Effect" version are.

I hadn't previously heard of nor seen these style 344M 19" wheels. I think I like these even better than the M5 345M 19s. If I decide to go with 19s on my M3 next summer, I will definitely consider these.

If its anything like Brilliant White metallic, instead of a regular 3 stage paint it will be a 5 stage paint. It should be pretty stunning however I imagine there will be quite the pretty little markup over the cost of a regular paint job.

I love the San marino blue but I am not sure as to what interior I would choose I am not a fan of black interior though it would be really bland for some exterior colors IMO, I can't wait to see the new m6 in person its so sexy definitely my next ride

They never will. BMW's current pricing policy is jack the price way up to charge those still willing to pay MSRP, and when they dont sell like hotcakes, then they will offer discounts off MSRP for those already produced and sitting on lots.

So basically, if you want to get one with just the right options, you have to pay through the nose.

Its the same paint
In some markets they just dont put the "Brilliant Effect" part of the name in the brochures

"Brilliant Effect" refers to the paint containing Xirallics

This looks good from all angles! I like the paint choices too. If it was my 100k (lol) I would be going for either Black Sapphire, Space Grey, Sakhir Orange or San Marino Blue. Most likely the orange or blue.
