since you're at the states, i have found the ag359 is much cheaper over your side, or set of Alufelgen ?

You're right. I missed seeing the ones like yours with the 18x9 rears on the Website. Can't make out the manufacturer on the centercap in the pics on BM Autosport's site, tho. They do look great on your car.

I have the Alufelgen CS7s in 19" on my car now and love the wheel but they don't make a good offset for the E9x in 18"...needs spacers to look right. I am looking at the AGs but I have a set of tires on my stock BMW 197s that are almost new and was hoping to use them. They'd be stretched on the AGs but perfect on the WSP version (18x8 and 18x8.5), which I have now read up on and seem like quality rims. But...it would cost be almost $350 US to import them, bringing the total up to the cost of the AGs.

So...still thinkin'. Thanks for the input!

Thanks , I do like the clio trophy, one of my colleague used to have one in blue, looks really good, hardly see a red one on the road, they must be fairly rare.

just a quick update, OZ has now gone, and replacing with some VMR 18s.





the current front tyres look a bit stretch for my liking, should getting some 235 35 18 soon for the front.

More to come this month, stay tuned

Wheels were refurb by a guy in my local area, cannot fault with their service / finishing, if anyone need the wheels done in east midland, drop me a PM and I will forward you the details

Looks great fella!

A slight drop will definately help it... BMW seem to make the 3er too high at the front in all formats - not noticed this issue with any of the other series though
