They're all basically the same. The one nice thing about the Turner ones is their new indent for easy removal.

I've used MS and Turner, no issues with either. My nod goes to Turner though, they just look "money".

Agreed. All the same in reality. What looks prettier is all you are going for at this point.

What wheels are you running? widths? offsets?
that's the determining factor.

Half the people on this forum are not running either … directly form BBS for the E9x M3 … 19 x 8.5 et20 and 19 x 10 et20 … this is what i run on my BBS CH 19's

Stock is:
19 x 8.5 et29
19 x 9.5 et23

reference the page below for any variations and remember that the offset changes for each wheel width …. therefore an et20 offset on an 9.5 rim does not equal an et20 on a 10.0 rim !!!!!!

If you move from the stock (rear) 19 x 9.5 et23 to the 19 x 10 et20 the result is the following: 3mm LESS clearance on the strut side, and the outside edge of the wheel will EXTEND an extra 9mm

Thanks I'll do more research. I'm running ZCP 359 wheels:

One other thing to consider from TMS page

* note about 10mm spacers: Any 10mm spacer is considered a custom fitment. The stock hubcentric lip on BMWs can stick out by as much as 11mm. This leaves a gap between the spacer and the hub which seriously compromises safety. We recommend using a larger spacer (12mm and larger do not have this issue) or check that the lip sticks out less than 10mm.

Ive had H&Rs and Rogues and had great experiences on both. The rogues feel just so high quality especially with the window cut outs. The MEGALIGHT look awesome, haven't had a chance to try out a set yet. http://www.rogueengineering.com/rogue/WH/RE-MEGA.html

Thanks. I probably will be going with Rogue. As for the Megalight, it's nice but I can't imagine cleaning the dust, dirt off of the spaces in between.
