Photos of my E90 M3 with new shoes on! UPDATED PICS 7/11

This is my E90 M3 with OEM M6 wheels on it!

I previously had these wheels on my 535i and they looked great on my ///M so I put on em!

I also got new Roundels!

Matte Black M3 Badge are on the way.

Previous pics were 1st day and dirty.

ADDED Pics of sidemarkers - Look!
Matte Black LED Smoked Sidemarkers.

****ADDED Roof Spoiler last week and added BMW Performance Shadowline Kidney Grills today!! What a difference by changing out the grills! See updated pics below.

I don't "dislike" it, but I just se ethose wheels and think 6 nor M3. That's just me.

I agree. Not original at all. These wheels are so linked to the 6.

Clean look, I too prefer the OEM 19's over the M6 wheels...

But it's all about what YOU like...

It helped that I had $$$ worth of OEM M6 wheels in my garage because I bought them from the dealer for my 08 535i and when I sold the car I kept the wheels.

And I bought my E90 used and it had the 18's on it, so for only needing to buy rear tires $$ to put them on, it worked for me. Plus I like the look.

Looks better than the M6, not better than 220s though.

Nice, but prefer them on 6's.

Or maybe go a gun metal grey or matt satin black would tone the look down and make it more subtle?

personally, I think the M6 wheels look out of place even on a M6. To each his own, as long as you like it, go for it!
