Poll: Which wheels would look best on my 2003 Titanium 330i sedan

I appreciate the opinions of my fanatic counterparts. Which rims would look best... I'm selecting 18" wheels :


18" staggered CSL's replicas.


The M5 replicas .

CSLs are really played out on this forum, but they are a damn good looking rim for the e46. If you have no qualms with having the same rims as alot of other people go for it. The m5s look good too, as long as they are 19 inch +. Here are some pics of 20s:

CSLs, and they are played out on the forum, not on the road (depending where you live).

Sorry for bad pick above...
These wheels are made by Lenso, is a M5 replica, has no tire lip on outside of the rim, thus making it look even bigger, size is 18x8.5 all round. Not sure which offset.
Lenso model name: E35.
Site: http://www.lensowheel.com/ecatalog/
The inside of the rim you pictured looks a bit squared out, the lenso truly looks M5. Have since picture was taken added BMW centre caps.

Go for the CSL's, but I'm biased I guess - Running BBS CH my self.

driftinsequence: RG-R's are cool as well, couldn't get them in Denmark, so had "to do" with CH instead.

THe M5 pics are incredible. I may opt for the CSL's because here in NYC you see them once in awhile. Well we'll see....thanks for the pics.
