However, the ZCP wheels themselves IMO are the most important part of the equation. They are lighter and stronger than the 19" pre-ZCP wheel. Also, they look so good that you don't need aftermarket wheels.
Additionally, if you look at the preowned E46 private party market and compare 06 ZCP vs. non there is a definite value added.
I personally think that M should have added some colors and made them ZCP specific like Interlagos was with the E46.
Oh boy...the amount of incorrect information on these forums makes me nuts.
The 359M ZCP wheels are gravity cast, and heavier than the Stronger Forged 220M wheels. However the 359M ZCP wheels are .5" wider.
Added value, most people on these forums don't know the difference between ZCP and Non-ZCP, let alone the average buyer.
