What design of wheel are you looking for in 18?? I have the old e39 original brochures and alloys and accessorie brochure let me know and I'll have a look to see if BMW made them in 18?? Your right about the parallel spokes. They were 18 on the 540i sport.

All E39 Sports ( early or Facelift ) came with 17" wheels as standard.

18" were a factory option/upgrade.

Someone told me once an exception to this was a special edition that came as standard with 18" wheels but I've never seen this so have to assume they are all 17"
