I just installed LM reps today and love them... Although I'll admit I was debating wether to put BBS or BMW caps. I ended up putting BMW caps so all you jerks can calm the heck down...

All I gotta say is if you have the money to buy OEM parts, more power to you right? And if you're like me and some of the people on the thread that buys replica wheels, body parts and etc to save a few bucks, whats wrong with that? It's my money so shut the $@#% up! Seriously... Some of us can't grow money as fast as others...

just like everything in life, from food to clothes, to other hobbies like guns or whatever you also enjoy doing. You get what you pay for.

i agree with the fact that whatever looks good and fits your budget, you should rock it. simply put.

hell, i rock 20"x8.5" all around with spacers and i get hated on any time i put my pics up, but it's not about people on the INTERNET that should 'approve' your car... it's YOURS, do what you want.

Great point - do what you want on your car. No need to feel obligated to do what everyone on here does.

That being said, please post pictures of your wheels. I want 20's too because I won't be dumping my car. I like my Msport ride height.

you get what you pay for as many memebers have said the same, not everyone has stacks to drop on on there cars. but if you have the money legit wheels are the way to go. or at least make sure its quality rep

I have had 19" VMR RS4 reps on my A4 for 4 years and only had a bent wheel once. I use it as my spare now. For 19" and some of the crappy spots around Orlando I got what I paid ($250 ea) and WAY MORE. The finish is delicate and can chip after 2-3 years from rocks. But they sell touch up paint and you don't see them unless you are sitting there looking for them. Money well spent if you avoid potholes and take care of the finish with weekly washes.

Trying to decide between reps and real wheels on my 335i now.

Clear costs on reps are horrible. Don't buy bbs reps because you will regret it. The polished lip will have their coats peeling within months.

Done it once and never again. You get what you pay for and I support not putting bbs or other wheel company caps on reps because you are in definition a poser
