Don't wanna always sound like a cheapo.

I know i've posted a few threads on replica questions and stuff but I don't want people to start thinkin " Why does this guy want to mod his Bimmer if he's just gonna cut corners". I've actually got some good mods like " p46's w/dde's and 6000k with matching Hid fogs, a Uuc Tse3 on the way, Ecis Cai, and every minor accessory known to man. But when it comes to Bbk's and Rims were talkin' serious cash, which I just can't justify paying in my current situation and with that said. I was wondering if anyone makes replicas of wheels that we all want but can't afford? I don't know if I should mention any names but they do start with DP, HR, and IF. Never seen any replicas of those wheels and would certainly appreciate any replies if you guys know anywhere that manufactures them. Hope this post piss anyone off.

do you not like the replica CSLs? Pricing is more then reasonable with tires...

if you like big lip wheels and youre on a budget you might want to look at Axis supermesh

Contact us about CSL wheels - I have them installed on my own personal car and therefore can answer ANY questions you could ever think of about these wheels. Buy with confidence from a seller who is passionate enough about the wheels to put them on his own personal car.

for the size (after all mine are 19" wheels) they aren't much heavier than oem stock 16s... now that being said, becasue of basic physics, the sheer fact that they have larger diameters and thus larger rotational force requried to move them, you will feel a loss in acceleration.... at the same time though, you would feel that even if you had oem 19" csls
