Kiddan phaji,


Punjab has m3's?? I thought the nicest car there was a Corolla?? Those look like BBS lm's, but something seems different about them. Perhaps LM reps?

No way, I think those are a special edition LMs for the track. I've seen some GT3s with those wheels.

This is a deal on the QD7's. It's no BBS, but they're a comparable wheel and they look hot on the car.

There are a couple; E46 and E9X. I've even seen some M3 CSL's, but the owners wanted 500K

those aren't LM's those are a custom made one off light weight 3 peice racing wheel from BBS. I think they cost 8 or 10k just for the rims. Ben @ Rogue engineering had them made for a customer.

These are not LM or LM-R's! These wheels are ordered from BBS. More info here:

They are BBS Motorsports wheels - named E88 I think - they are extremely custom and if I'm not mistaken they are magnesium centers with ti hardware, the center section spokes are machined out to be light weight. you have to look under BBS motorsport wheels to find them, the barrel comes in 2 peice's that needs to be bolted together with the face before you can even install. when I called BBS they where very reluctant to make for me for a street application. the car pictured above is on M3Forums seach and you will find I think he ordered 2 sets.

Go for the LM or LM-R. The point about which particular model is in that picture is probably too subtle versus LM/LM-R in general.
