We’ll remind you it stretches at 5060 mm lengthy and 1900 mm large, making it 97 mm longer and 32 mm wider than its G31-generation predecessor. Fortunately, you possibly can go as excessive as 21 inches, wherein case BMW will cost you €2,650 for the two-tone alloys (Type 954) we’ve already seen on the i5 Sedan.
