Don't have an e90/e92 but have some BBS to throw on them once i do

I think eventually I'll get an e90/e92 M3 in alpine white, sparkling graphite, or space gray which i can probably throw these rims on...

anyways...

i've been trying to decide on which rims to go w/ forever now...debating b/w BBS LM's, LM-Rs in the silver finish? BBS RS-GT's in a DBK or silver finish? Volks? other?

more recently i found a couple of people selling DBK LMs & LM-Rs at reasonable prices & have been debating b/w those 2...

a big factor in my decision making was trying to find a set of wheels that would be relatively easy to clean which ruled out the LMs & had me leaning towards a set of volks

i then saw a set of Volk LE-37s for sale but the seller ended up selling to a local person...

so, i ended up deciding on the set of DBK LM-Rs (i really missed the finish from my old DBK RS-GTs); btw, the rims came w/ red centercaps which i thought looked a little odd as the red/gold lettering didn't go well w/ the DBK finish (i may put them on in a couple of months or so to see what they look like)

i had to promise my wife no more mods...so i'll have to wait a couple of months before i can get a V-CSL bumper

i think i'm almost done modding the ///M

many thanks to all who've helped me w/ my decision-making, anyways, enough babbling & on to the pics!

Very nice color scheme. The only thing I would do now is lower it.

Nice. You can only get LM-R DBK through Japan.

you have such a great car, why get E92... But it's your choice. Car looks sick, wheels are excellent and they match the car very very well.
