I voted LMs when I was looking for a set of wheels to buy. But As i looked at both of them and compared, the LMRs are actualy WAAAAY NICER!! so i got myself a set of LM-Rs!!!!! Cost more but WORTH IT!

They both have a classic look, just the LM-Rs have a better peacock effect, it just looks ALIVE.

I voted LM

But I love both wheels, you really cant go wrong with either. The LM's are probably one of the most sought after wheels in the world. That's why you see so many replicas.

After owning my first set of LM's, I really cant buy another wheel. They are just too gorgeous in person.

I love them both but ultimately went with the 20" LM-R's on the E90. I don't run them on the car all the time, but when I put them on I just fall in love with the car all over again. LM's are on my E30 and they are perfect on the older car.
