*eh-em* 359s would like to have a word.

Your car looks good on those. The gunmetal finish works well with the gray paint!

It's funny, I loved the 220's when the car came out in 08.

As time has gone on, I absolutely love the 18" 219's in the gunmetal, and I actually don't like the 220's at all anymore. Why BMW changed the 219 to silver is beyond me. But they sure do look great on your car! What is your suspension and spacer set up?

I would have to give the edge slightly to the 359's, but I certainly wouldn't get rid of 219's if the M3 had them

I just picked up some 359s to replace my 219s but shots like these make me reconsider. the e9x just looks so good with the proper drop and 18s. nice work!

On Scale Suspension and 15mm spacer in front & 12mm spacer in back. I have to agree with the 359's, I may need to add that to my "other" stocks

Looks great. I have to agree, the 219's paired with spacers provides a very clean look!

Agreed. I curbed my 359's so badly that I picked up a brand new set of 219's and powder coated them in black. I may never go back to my 19's.

what's with the te37 sl look? put some center caps on that bitch.

also the 219's are one of the best oem wheels. i would put the e46 zcp wheels up there as well. 359 are okay imo.

Lol, I like the way 219's look with caps on or off. I think it can pull it off either way, but yes the caps are back on since the photos

Looks fantastic! I love gunmetal 219s on Space Grey M3s. I love the 359s a lot, but this is definitely the best OEM setup ever. Also helps that they are made by BBS.

Can't disagree. Greatest looking stock m wheels. Have a set on the side for easy swap. Hard to beat and looks great on your car!!

I didn't even notice the caps were gone. I think it looks just as good without them, only different and maybe a bit aftermarket. But I see you have since put them back on

It's too bad the 219m wheels were placed by the 260m on the newer E9x M3s. If you have a US model 2011+ with 18" wheels, chances are, you got the 260M which IMHO don't look as good.

The 260M spokes look different, the center is different, the curvature of the spokes is different. The 260M's flatter spokes allows for clearance of larger brakes but the 219M has a deeper concave look. The center is larger on the 260M. The 219M has longer spokes, the spokes have a design to it, spokes widen as it flares out from the center and overall has the appearance of a larger wheel.

I would love to see the 219's in the black powder coat you did! The exhaust is a CNT exhaust
