Total cost was $1500, the wheels arrived the next day and I can confirm 17" wheels fit on the 35i.
If only it could snow now...
Totally echo that. I'm running 235/50/R18s non-RFTs for winter. I cant believe how much softer the ride is vs the 19s. Not as fun to take twisties on but it is a more relaxing experience. Hitting bumps in the road is not the annoyance it is with the 19s. Bring on the snow!
