If you look inside the OEM 19 on the E46 M3 you will see the Fuchs Logo-(FOX). Its right on the hub area. I have yet to take a peek on the OEM 19 from the E90, but I think its safe to assume that they are as well.

You're so right. I looked at this before but didn't recognize the stylized fox head as Fuchs. See the images below. The rest of the inscriptions read:

35878 is the Fuchs internal factory assigned part# for the 19 x 8.5" front wheel

35879 is the Fuchs internal factory assigned part# for the 19 x 9.5" rear wheel

The factory describes these 220 Double spoke wheels as "bi-coloured, high gloss polished".
