Linea Corse Strasse or Beyern Mesh

Guys, with all of you fanatics' help I finally bought a set of Beyern Mesh in Hyper Silver 18/8.5/9.5" from Discount Tire and have them held it for me as I'm shopping for tires. But in the mean time I saw some Linea Corse Strasse 18/8.5 in Royal Hyper Black and fell in love with them. Just take a look: http://www.wheeldude.com/catalog/pro...roducts_id=270.
Aren't they gorgeous?

The issue is, Strasses aren't staggered and not Hyper Silver. Which one would you guys go with for Titanium Silver 04 330ci convertible?

Here are they side by side:

I personally love the staggered look, so although I LOVE Linea Corse I would have to go with the Beyern this time.

Same here man. I love the staggered look myself. But I think those Strasses look a lot sexier than the Beyerns......more aggressive.

Really, I know those Beyerns look a bit conservative, for the purist may be more German. But thanks for the honest opinion though I respectfully disagree.....
