We don't have any on a stock suspension M3, but here is a set of gunmetal Advan RS on an AW e92 M3:





V701s on a non-M, but it should give you a good idea:

Pretty big difference in price/quality between the two.

The finish on my VMRs was less than perfect from new and degraded quickly. They also weighed as much as a small pickup truck and were VERY hard to properly balance. The hardest wheel to balance I ever owned. They aren't bad value but definitely not a quality/weight leader by any stretch of the imagination.

quality meaning weight? should be price/performance if you put it that way. not quality cause VMR quality is pretty dam good.

Not in my experience. Finish and balancing, at least on the two sets I have owned, was subpar. Maybe I just got unlucky twice but I think this is a fairly wide spread sentiment. But, like I said, they are not a bad value proposition either way... just don't expect super high end quality IMO. They are a value wheel.

Here are some pics of my M with 18" Gunmetal Advan RS wheels with stock ride height. The ride height and wheel gap is bearable but not ideal. I ended up getting lowering springs after, for better looks but in the end still bought coils..

Guys, just wondering if I should paint 19" Dark Gunmetal Advan RS in Alpine White ... What do you think ? It should match with my 2008 E92 AW. Any though ?

No. Quality is not that great.

not sure what you guys experienced with VMR but i've had 2 sets of vmrs with no problems at all. 19s and 18s. Paint quality is actually very good, I know cause I had a set stripped for full polish. They are heavy yes but thats to be expected with all cast wheels.
