I did not want an all black wheel.. just personal preference, and the Elbrus had the option for the BMW caps and they looked similar to the 403's so I went that route. $1750 out the door and no shipping because Tirerack is here in my back yard so I could pick them up myself. $50 rebate on the Pirellis takes it to $1700. Can't complain at all... and if something bad happens to a wheel during the winter, minimal cost to replace. The car easily recognized the new TPM and I was good to go right away.
I was going to ask you how it went before I ordered - did you just go and reset the TPMS system and let it connect?
I'm still torn re: getting 17 vs 18 rims...I don't want to limit my future Brake purchases because of this.
