Wheel ?

I May be interested in this m3 for sale that racperformance has for sale

However have a ? about the wheels on the car

is this wheel an original 18 wheel for the year 2009 the gunmetal just painted or powder coated ? it does have the bmw stamp on the wheel according to them.

Could it be an oem m3 wheel painted in black maybe from a different year

If anyone on here thinks there the original 18 gunmetal painted will the paint hold up and if not is it hard to remove the paint and will it not ruin the original gunmetal finish

If in doubt you could take the car for a PPI and have the shop remove the wheels. There should be oem numbers engraved inside the wheel.
