They are beautiful when you do some research and find out they are 10,000 ton die forged, weigh only about 16# to 18#, are easy to clean and don't cost $6,000. The TE37s are basically pounded into the final shape. The only cutting is between the spokes, so the grain structure of the metal of wheel is maintained, which makes them some of the strongest wheels made. Rays makes the Formula 1 wheels for the Williams team.

I love my HRE P40, but Voiks are great wheels, too. I loved my 19" TE37s in Mercury Silver on my old E46 M3, too. I DO admit I personally prefer the P40s on the E92 M3. Since I now know my 18" TE37s will work with my Brembos, I might have them refinished to match the gloss charcoal finish of my P40s.
