20" chrome spinners...?

So what sort of ride could I expect from something fitted with 20" spinners?

Apart from the spinners, this would be just about my ideal X5: right interior, extras, navigation, just about the right price(!), but... ewww, those chromes. And this guy isn't a bmw specialist, either, so I doubt he's going to want to change them himself.

What's the likely cost to fit the original 19" alloys? And I'm in the UK, so anyone with experience of things over here, it would be great to hear from you.

I can just see homey headed down the street, sub pounding, head bobbing from side to side, and people with good sense standing on the sidewalk laughing their heads off as DUB the idiot drives by. Oh the things we do, thinking we cool, when in reality we are nothing more than fools. I am so happy I am done with that. But if you really want to get attention get these.
