Question Estoril with DS2 or Contours - Your Opinion

Hey All,

So I love all wheels and I am deciding between keeping the DS2s or going with Soccer Balls on my Estoril Coupe. 1st world problem I know. I really love the contours on silver, black, red, but I gravitate towards the DS2 on Estoril.

I need a sanity check here. Whats your opinion?

I would keep the DS2s. Contours are a side-grade looks wise in my view, not worth the effort.

The only factory wheels I'd actually swap to in your situation are style 24s or style 5s (in e36 fitment).

Yeah...I agree. Thanks for the sanity check guys! Weird how color of the car affects wheel choice.

I agree. I was never a fan of the DS2. I think I go with the Contours over the DS2 but neither are that great. And I have Contours (which I wanting to swap out).

There's a few versions of finishes, stamped vs not stamped, but ECS Tuning has some on their site.

Hmmm....still gravitating to Ds2 but the Style 24 stamped would be #1 for me if I can find some locally. Could be a while..
