I wasn't going to sell my FIs, willing to sell your LM-Rs straight up?

Great dilemma to have. Depends if you totally want to change the overall look of your car, completely different from eachother as you obviously know.

I personally love the Lm-r's in 20''

I personally love the LM-R's. I have the Amuse setup myself on my e92. I honestly think they are the best looking wheel for the e92. I am not a big fan of the FI's. I understand they are great, light, look good but I just don't like them too much on our cars. I LOVE them on the 1M, but not on our cars. Of course, that's just my opinion. I would stick with the LM-R's.

I like the LMr but the weight of the FIs is great for performance.

LM/LM-R's are a little played out now, IMO. And if you have a BBK, it's a no brainer. The BBK is just sex behind the FI's.

FI will never be played out because of how rare they are.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
