Agreed, weird how the shape and parts of the spokes they have highlighted in polished aluminium makes the wheel hubs not look in the center.

I’m still going to buy one though!

LOL I had to go back to look at what you mean but once seen it can not be unseen.

This pic highlights it best - hub looks way off center due to the optical illusion of the polished spokes

Don't worry. The tires are actually an optical illusion too. Supra is actually a hovercar.

I can't wait to see this car finally unveiled.

I think this might just be the "more power in my 86/BRZ" that we've all wanted. I'm hoping I am right, but it'll be just a sweet on handling (or better) than our cars... with much more power and hopefully a good quality interior to match.

I personally like the wheels and everything else you can see through the damn fugly camo.

The only thing I'm 'concerned' about is the price. BMW isn't exactly known for being a cheaper or value-for-money brand... so that will be interesting.

We haven't "all" wanted more power.
If I wanted a more powerful two seat car with a nice interior and a bigger price tag I would already be on a Nissan, Audi, BMW or Chevy forum. As much as it would appear that the people that are buying the 86/BRZ would like this "upgrade" I don't think that many will actually do it. Different target market.
