They look very similar.. Instead of spending the money on something that pretty much looks the same to someone who isn't a fanatic, get a nice set of lm reps or vmr's for the same price. Then you will have the option of variety. I think you will be much happier in the end

I think you would be much happier if you bought something your car really needs, and nothing personal, but there has to be a number of things...maybe you have an oil leak or two? Maybe your cooling system is years old...

Just saying. If not and 'you' prefer the wheels...your choice. I like the ones you have on better...and very much!

I dont like these on e46 m3s. Its like they look to "round" or something. They make the car look more like a non M. Keep the stockers.
