Avante Garde M359 vs OEM ZCP

Hey, this question is for anyone that has seen AG M359 up against the OEM ZCP wheels. Not asking which is better as I have heard much debate on build quality of AG vs OEM.... My question is more that I am wondering if the AG's are an exact copy of the ZCP wheels? Anyone seen them next to each other?

I love the concave of the OEM ZCP rear wheels that is never properly represented in a photograph... Always much sexier in person... Even the E46 competition wheels looked much "deeper" in person.

Did you even attempt to search to see if the exact same topic was discussed recently? Like only a few days ago....

Well actually, I did do a search on this about a month ago but no, I didn't do a search this time.......... I deserve a good internet thrashing. Thank you, I have learned my lesson. Will 100 push-ups suffice?

But thanks for the link bro!

Apparently he wants to hear from people who have used both, not just people "Spouting off that OEM is better".

I have had both. The finish is not the same on the ag. It is more of a darker silver than the oem. ( I actually like the color of the ag better) It also has more sparkles than the oem. The big difference is the barrel is black and the oem barrel is all silver.
Having had both, I will agree with Slicer... The oem is quite a bit nicer construction, not saying the ag is bad but the oem is better.

yeah, that is actually why I was leaning towards AG. I would like to get the ZCP style powder coated in a gunmetal color. I think that looks better than Jet Black on Black ZCP.

I like the gunmetal too but I chose not to because it seems when the oem are powder coated it kills the value.

I agree, they do... I currently have the Gunmetal 18's and I just really dig the dark car dark wheel look. I just think the ZCP's look so much better than the OEM gunmetal 18" wheels.
