Same. I despise that steering wheel. I'd love to see the XB7 get a little more aggressive with the exterior styling, but I do understand that a lot of people like it as-is.

Have you checked the lease program on this? No one should think about leasing this car right now... 38% residual on 36 mo 12k miles.
Yes, that's because price is little overblown.
I would guess, it's gonna happen same as 8 series, huge discounts.

I love Alpina styling and wheels. They're proper RIMS, you know.

If you're purchasing an Alpina, Maintenance cost shouldn't be an issue..

Wow, usually the smaller wheel options don't look as good but in this case I prefer these over the 23 inch upgraded Alpina wheels. Complements the blue incredibly well, also love the tartufo merino interior.

Absolutely gorgeous. Just picked up my tags today for my M50i and I'm already wanting to make a change after seeing this

It has a cool old school flare to it. It's very nice. Enjoy it!

Sorry but I think that way of thinking stupid. I’ve heard that argument for years ...If you have the money to buy X you should be able to afford Y. No one wants to pay $700+ for one tire and possibly wait weeks to get one.

Probably still better than buying it

I would add to this in I would be very concerned traveling away from home with my family and not be able to get a tire for my luxury SUV. Despite being inconvenienced, my expensive travel plans would also be in jeopardy. The 22” wheels are risky enough and they are common by comparison.

scottg61376 went with the 21x9.5, 285/45 R21 wheels and tires which are not staggered and readily available starting at around $255 a tire for the all-seasons.

The 23" wheels and tires are staggered and cost 3X as much. They are available on Tire Rack.

Regardless of which wheel you select, optioning a spare would be advisable if you're planning on a lot of travel.
