They will be refurbished as soon as I replace the rear tyres or put my winters on.
As a dealer,I would highly recommend BM Autosport.However,I would be wary of the longevity of some of the finishes...
In fairness,oem wheels have their own issues with them cracking-I found my rear MV3's both had hairline cracks,so get what you like.Buying reps has no stigma attached and might mean that you can get some decent rubber in the deal.
+1. I visited BM Auto's with the intention of buying a set of csl reps, but was disappointed with the quality. I eventually bought a set from Chris over on m3cutters forum.

Now the great thing with Chris being a member of m3cutters is that he will always mention the quality of the various different alloys he receives from his suppliers and this is also reflected in the price, so you know exactly what you are getting.

I can't recommend Chris enough, and believe me I'm hard to please.
