It鈥檚 weird. I don鈥檛 think the wheels on the M5 are that nice. They look like the plastic wheel trims from a diesel. Yet鈥 I like them on that M5. I can鈥檛 explain it.
I like these rims. Today they look obsolete and effectively plastic hubcaps, but at the time they looked both stylish and sporty. The E34 also had them on the 535i (which, strangely enough, made more of an impression on me than the M5). Anyway, I'm glad OttO chose these rims, which are very much in line with the times of this model.

Looks to me like a 鈧5 comedy paperweight.
And even then I wouldn't put my hand in my pocket.
Are Otto so short of subjects?
I think it's mainly aimed at the French market. This film has been making young and old laugh for years, if not decades (and it's not over yet). The DS that flies away in the last frame has become a cult. It's the second degree about the car which, at the 1955 Paris show, was nicknamed a flying saucer.
