Going back to basics? HRE --> ZCP Wheels?

Hey guys I've been bothered by this dilemma lately, I've been thinking about selling my HRE C20s on my e90 M3 for some ZCP wheels and some spacers for that clean look. Just tired of the high maintenance on the HREs (brushed face,polished lip) and constantly having to worry about scratches and scuffs (I daily drive the M3 now). What do you guys think?

C20s on my M3, I've loved it since day one when I bought it brand new, that's what makes it so hard

I'll trade you my ZCP's for your HRE's

I am in the mood for some "high maintenance" HRE's!

I will trade you my brand new ZCP's (take delivery in 3 weeks) for your wheels + cash.

PM me what you think might be fair.

lol I actually sat by my car and looked at the car for a good 5 minutes, I do love my HREs but I think it's that urge to make changes that's tickling me. Thanks for your inputs guys =)

Hey, an urge to make changes got me from the BBS CH's that I loved to my Volk G2's, which I wasn't sure I'd love at first. Then I got them on, and I couldn't be happier.

But in my case it was an upgrade, for you it would almost seem like a downgrade, no?

Well value wise it'll be a big downgrade, at least imo, but I don't mind that since the ZCP wheels are growing on me. Oh well, time will tell how this plays out

Keep the HREs, I think the ZCP wheels look better on the coupe than sedan.
