Go with the FI! The M3 is a performance car which needs performance wheels.

GewoW is running black rims, H2 polished, so I MUST stick to the titanium with LSB!
Yeah those titanium in that pic are ridiculous. Will look awesome with LSB I can't wait to see it!!!

I'm a sucker for LM-R's. Looks more of a motorsport oriented wheel.
The FI's look pretty awesome too.

I ordered a set of FIs in TI colour 8 weeks ago and was informed 2 days ago, that it will take 6 more weeks, so you better decide quick if you want to get them this season

FI for the looks, but the LM-Rs are nice too. However, money aside, FIs. But, if you choose to keep the LM-Rs, then put the $$$ you were going to spend on upgrading to the FIs, on a SC or something.
