My little brother just bought brand new E90 M3 ( melbourne Red ) few weeks ago..And I just bought for him a set of 19x9,5 et 32 and 19x11 et 22 ( with Michellin PSS tires ).

Since the wheels is already in my friend bodyshop ( Andrew's powder coating ).The place that helped me do my LM on my Ferrari like a years ago..Now I'm debating on the powdercoating...

What do you think guys...Melbourne red with Bronze finished or Matte black center,glossy black on outerlip with gold/bronze nuts/screws??on the bronze finished..Im a bit confuse about the nuts/screws.should i leave it chrome or ask them to do matte black?

can anyone do help me do photoshop on e90/e92 m3?help is needed..thnx

I think it all depends on the type of wheel and shade of bronze. Check out this MR E92 M3 on the EAS site. I hope it's ok to post the link ...

In the case of the OP, I'm not sure about how bronze BBS LMs will look on the MR.

i really don't think 1, 2 or 3 piece will matter. I would do satin black rivets to tie in the some black on the car. Those bronze LM's i posted would look ridiculous on MR.

I own MR as well...

They're not in Chatsworth but Rotiform is a good place to disassemble wheels, however they are located in Orange County and they are the ones who rebuilt and refinished my buddy's gorgeous Bronze (rootbeer) BBS LM's.
