Hey, I never thought of that, but you're right - I should get a custom plate:

Thanks - 545i 6 sp. Picked it up in Germany. Options/aftermarket are:

Jet blk, Beige/Poplar with black mats, sport package, UUC short shifter, CDV delete, clutch stop, Logic 7 sound, cold weather pkg, comfort seats, wood shifter, handbrake, rear panel, fold-down rear seats, handsfree phone, Sirius radio, cargo net, debadged.

The satellite radio and Logic 7 are phenomenal.

Great set of wheels. I just ordered a 2005 545I six-speed for pick up in Germany in early Oct. Olivene Green with SP, NAV, Sat Radio, folding rear seats, HUD and Cold Weather Package.

Awesome!
BTW, do you have PDC? Do you think it's worth it? I'm wondering whether or not to spend $1000 to have my dealer install it on my 545i.
Also, how much total did you spend on those wheels and tires? Do you think it's worth it on a leased car like mine?

Thanks - no PDC on the car - I've heard mixed reviews, especially from people that have hit curbs and small posts with it.

The only way I could justify spending that kind of money on wheels and tires (just under $4,500 for the set) was that they will fit the E60 M5. I'll probably substitute all-season Pirelli Pzero M+S for the OEM runflat tires mounted on the OEM wheels for driving this winter. When I get the M5 (I'm first on the list, but it will be at least another year), I'll trade-in or sell the 545 with the OEM wheels and tires, and put the RS-GT's on the M5. One additional benefit of the wheels and tires is that they weigh a total of 56 lbs LESS than the OEM's, even though the wheels are 1" larger. The car feels quicker, handles better, and rides much better.

I've never gotten so many compliments on a car, and I think the wheels are a big part. Now that I have them, It would have been worth it M5 or not.
