Just a quick run round the block, even though they are winter runflats, theres a big difference in the ride quality!

Those comparison pics really do highlight the 'form over function' debate. The 326's look so much better, but apparently behind the wheel its a different story :driving:

Not only does the car look different, but the houses in the background have gone pale with the shock!

Not only are they lighter, but it’s unsprung weight which makes an even bigger difference :wink:

Don’t worry, you can’t see the wheels when you’re driving it :D

I've done the same swap, but my winter tyres aren't RFT. The ride, noise and handling is *completely* different! Amazing...

And the neighbours cars have driven off for a makeover too. :lol:

Oi you, leave our 290’s alone! :poke:
They’re the car equivalent of wellington boots over a muddy field :P

They're a nice style of wheel IMO, but they do looks a little lost. :(

Still I take staggered 17s off my E46 and put on a square set of 16s each winter, but at least I know it will move if it snows!
