I Photoshopped these black CSL Reps onto a picture that isn't my car and I raised the suspension an inch. What are your guys' thoughts on black CSLs on this color car without a drop?

I was told they were OEM by 2 BMW dealers and 2 Auto mechanics. One of the dealers even showed me them in their catalog, tho they couldnt find me any available. What shocked me was that they couldnt tell me what car they came from, and the model numbers on the wheels are faded. UGH!

One of them is starting to show signs of a crack and I love these rims so much that I want to just replace it instead of getting a new aftermarket set.

I have had LOTS of offers to buy these rims off me...

I wish i could just find them!!!

That photograph was photoshopped by me. Based on that picture though I just bought those wheels on black friday. Hopefully real life looks like the picture! Thanks for the feedback though.

Phoopsta, try this link to find your wheels. Its a list of all BMW wheels, might take a while, but its worth a shot. http://felgenkatalog.auto-treff.com/

Nevermind I just went through the whole list out of boredom.

My Ride: 2004 325XiT

My 2004 Xi has staggered 18" style 264 from an e87 135i convertible Sport package. It is otherwise stock. Zero fitment issues with these wheels, BTW. 5mm spacers on the rear would make the outer lip of the rear wheels even with the front wheels, but it's barely noticeable, so I won't bother.
The photo links to my Flickr account, which has more photos.

Those look awesome. I love five spoke. Nice choice. Did you order these OEM, or pick them up from someone else?

Thanks. I found my first set here on e46 fanatics, but got hosed on that deal and I never used them. I found this like-new set with good tires nearby me for less money than the first set. Buyer beware.

How did you get to "B35".
Any massaging done to fit the rears?

Just put a set of the 68's on my 325 as well. I really like the look of these wheels and get a screaming deal on them!
