Pics of 20" BBS LM-Rs DBK on Space Gray?

I'm close to pulling the trigger on these rims with the Ericsson offset. I tried to doing a search, but I can't find one on a Space Gray ///M. I found a set of LMs in Diamond Black on an space gray E90 ///M3, but because of the lack of spokes on the LM-R, it doesn't look the same. There was this pic: http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthr...&highlight=DBK

but this looks like Sparkling Graphite.

Does anybody have pics of 20" BBS LM-Rs DBK on a Space Gray E9x ///M3?

Jason (CSMRX7) just confirmed with me that his E90 is Sparkling Graphite. I guess the ones who have it either aren't on this forum or there aren't any out there.

hmm... oddly enough i can't think of any sg e9x on dbk lm-r, let alone ericsson offsets.
this's a good thing in my book.

here's an e92 w/ dbk ericsson. not sg it's pearl grey (lamborghini color), u get the idea

I have an E92. And I doubt I'll be a first. I seem to be the only with DPE S-20s in black on the forums, but I think I want a change. I'll probably go by during the weekend to check them out in person and hopefully get a better idea of how they'll look on my car.

Again, thanks for helping out.

looks great! DBK is a very close match to space gray (i have an E90 on DBK LM's) so it's as if the wheels came with the car

You can always depend on Infamous to have the pictures you need!!!

You can't go wrong with the LM-R's. In my opinion, they are the nicest wheels you can get for our cars. I might be biased though.

Pull the trigger. You won't regret it!!
