Congrats on such an exclusive set of wheels! But wow @ the 9 month wait... why did it take so long??

What did the weights come in at btw? These run about $7-8k USD, right?

Wheel locks on. Thanks everyone for the kind words! They look do much better in person even. I'm relieved they worked out so well, otherwise a pricey mistake.

Nice wheels and all that matters is you are happy with them, and I may be the only one, but I don't think these wheels look very good on our cars. They are top shelf of course when it comes to function but I think there are countless more wheels that look better.

They really expose the main weakness of the M3 now ... the BRAKES. Run don't walk to EAS for a BBK if you plan to keep the wheels.

I had a similar reaction in the buyers remorse phase when they were on order, but now having seen them and the physical intricacies and lines of the wheels, I could not be happier with the choice. I had never seen this finish on an M and I didn't like the black finish too much, so luckily the gamble paid off in my opinion. The nice thing is that they are functional with a unique architecture, but do expose my need for a BBK. My dilemma is which color to go with....

They look great...i have not seen a better set on a M3. BBK would be ideal, but i would keep it in theme with your car..Laguna calipers would look pretty fresh with a white brembo overlay...clean not to flashy and only about 9K. hit 'em straight bra.

WOW! Those are beautiful...congrats!! That 9 month wait must have been painful. Guess this is the male-equivalent to waiting 9 months for a baby to arrive
