CSL's vs. Stock 220's

Simple question- which do you prefer?

CSL's or the new Style 220's?????

After looking back at the M3 concept I'd go for CSL's. They look bolder and
fit the shape of the car better. The 220's have spokes that look too small and the whole wheel seems to get lost in the overall look of the car.

But that's just my 2 cents- what's yours?

the NEW csl's will be sweet...

i think the current csl wheel looks a whole let better on an e46 and in my opinion should stay on an e46...

i like the new stocky 18's, maybe finish them gunmetall on a spark graph...

The CSL wheels are nice....

But putting CSL wheels on the new M is kinda like putting E36 Evo wheels on a E46M...

Just wait for the new CSL to come out....I am sure the wheels will be different.

More pics please Steved.
Is that standard finish on them?
Were they able to order those wheels when they spec'd the car?

I am impartial. Are the 220's the 19" upgrade wheels for the new M3 or the standard 18's? I think that I prefer the CSL's over the 19" upgraded wheels.

I'm liking that look too

Might just stick with the standard 18"s on spec, keep them for track days and have a set of OE CSLs for day to day?

I liked how the 220s were sucked in towards the middle. The CSL's definately aren't bad either. I think the CSL's would look great with a black finish. Especially on a AW M3.

Ok, after looking back at that picture a day later the CSL's definately have grown on me.

Looks fantastic.
