Sorry for the wrong assumption, it's just that the majority of M6 rims you see happen to be replicas, at least on these boards.

I thought they looked to nice to be replicas, guess I shouldn't have jumped the gun. At least I got the 'M6" part right

If you guys want, I can pick it up for about $400ish, then ship it out to you. Just pay me for my gas and time to the dealer (plus shipping label of course)

I used to have a connect where I could get it for $400 shipped but they've gone MIA :/

Absolutely worth it!

I was skeptical before I got it, but I'm a believer now!

And secondly what dimension are they? Spacers?

Thank you

Very easy to put in. It's got 4 pins that fit into holes in the back of the car. Folds up in a nice little package if you need to remove it. Easy for one person to put in and take out.

The screen itself can flip down if you don't need it. I keep mine in the car all the time. Rarely have a backseat passenger so no need to remove it. I do flip it down if the top is up.

I will warn you that it may get knocked down while driving. I seems like a really strong side breeze can flip it down. Only happened to me once, but it scared the crap out of my wife and I. I thought I was taking gunfire!

I wish my car seats didn't block the use of it.

But, I find that with all 4 windows up, the car is pretty peaceful inside anyway

Haha, the same thing happened to me once and scared the crap out of me as well. It has to be a really strong breeze for it to fall down though.
