Thanks,

in this photo you are looking at a 9.5" front wheel width, and a 10" rear wheel width. If this is the set up you are looking for, send me a PM so I can get you pricing info

Thats a scary post! Has VMR addressed these paint issues this year, and do people still have these chipping problems? It seems to me like its inadequate paint or application.

No way, no more 18 VB3 gunmetals from eas????

No offset on the wheels, just going straight staggered with 18x8.5 in front, 18x9.5 in the back. definitely more room in the wheel-well compared to the OEM 19's I have, but I figure its fine for winter.

No gunmetals but black is going to look good too. I think you're like the wheels on your M3, I was a bit hesitate at first (originally wanted V710) but happy with these once I've had them on the car.

Looks nice....what size tires are you running there? I wonder if you got 40 or 45 series if that would fill the wheel well better?

I have 18/40/235 in front and 18/40/255 in the back. Definitely have space in the wheel well (especially in the front), maybe 45 would have filled it up more but I'll just see how it works in the snow this winter.

I'm a bit more concerned on the winter performance then the aesthetics for now. Especially since last year my 335i was stuck on the highway (long story).

Ya based on what I heard from a forum vendor, vmr gunmetal CSL are sold out till december - best estimate I could get was mid to late December for more stock.
