Are the stock 19's cast or forged?

I have 20's, I have the 19's and now Im looking to pick up the csl style 19's. Debating wether I should sell the stock 19's tho since the wheels I wanna get I believe r cast. Wouldnt wanna get rid of a better wheel for a lesser one. Let me know what u guys think I should do.

FAIL!

Stock E92 M3 19s are forged. E46 Comp package & CSL wheels are cast(same design, same back wheel, diff front width 8"-comp vs 8.5"-CSL).

You could read the sticky and search for CSL threads, there are PLENTY

The offsets of the E46 M3 ZCP / CSL rims are way off for the E92 M3. You'd have run some massive front spacers (20+mm) to make it fit. I fitted them to regular E92 with 15mm spacers up front.

He's looking at CSL style wheels from VMR, not the E46 ones.

I was told it can fit as VMR tested them with 9.5 up front I think. But if anyhting they have the 8.5 option and 10 rear.
