Yes. IMO, Alufelgen looks better.

Gotta agree with this. VMR has a great reputation, and they make very strong wheels as well. I've been running VMR wheels for almost 2 years now, with no issues. I highly suggest them in all respects

If anybody needs pricing, just PM me

Don't get me wrong here. I'm saving up for VMR's.

I'm just SUPER biased because I saw matte black Alufelgen's on an AW E90 M3 and I cried of pleasure.

Both are great quality wheels. Alufelgen wheels are flow formed cast whereas VMR are gravity cast. FFC wheels were produce a stronger, lighter wheel in the end but ALFG wheels' prices reflects that.

The VMR VB3 CSL get's my vote. It's definitely a more classic look and is concave!
