Gfs M3 Wheel opinions

My girlfriend has a black 09 E90 M3 and shes thinking about either powder coating the factory 19s or picking up a different set of wheels all together just looking at what you guys think would look best. Im a fan of black ZCP wheels or the hre p40s i believe they are called. The car is stock other than 35% tint.

Thanks
Zac

If I'm reading that correctly, then the p40's are definitely the wrong wheels to get lol...

First, props on the GF with M!

Second, for what it is worth, I bought OEM ZCPs and I powdercoated them textured matte black. I get compliments all the time.

PM if you want to see pics.

used P40s are hard to fine...

They're very sexy

P40's are nice, just not too unique. VMR replicas them I believe, so you'll see the general design just about anywhere.

Now, if you want HRE P40 design at a lower price point, then there you go, VMR....

Yea it is a hell of a price difference but still all within budget for the car. I hate to powdercoat the stock wheels incase we ever want to go back to them. I will look at the replicas I have been trying to find a set but like you said they are hard to come by used.
