Any opinions on the superleggera (sic) wheels? I want to replace my OE wheels. A friend mentioned that the 17's have been discontinued. Anyone in the Atlanta area that lives in town that can attest to ride quality of 17 vs. 18s? Thanks.

There has been some general confusion about these wheels being discontinued.

They have not been discontinued, but OZ has changed the finish from the dark grey anthracite color to a bright silver color.

This has been an outstanding wheel which has been both light and strong from our experience.

I don't live in atlanta, but I think most would agree here that 18" on the E46 doesn't beat you up as far as ride quality. We've tested several combinations of wheel/tire combinations on our E46 test mules, and I didn't find the 18" ride to be bad at all, just a bit more firm than the 17" setup.
