If they are authentic LM's then . It used to be that to be different, you'd have to get LM's because it was expensive and no one really had it. But now with all those reps running around, you have to get CH's to be different from everyone else.

can't go wrong with either although if i had to choose and money was not a concern, Forged > Cast anyday (except for advan RGII's which are my first love)

In this game, ya gotta pay to play - LMs suits the coupe more than the sedan. CHs look better on the sedan.

I debated LM, CH, and RS-GT's. I eventually decided upon the RS-GTs and am happy. If you are oriented towards the lightest wheel then RS-GTs or RGRs may be what you want.

One advatage to the CH is that it is a cast wheel and would be easier to repair if you rash them. I dread curb rash on my wheels - so far so good with the RS-GTs.

I wish. I've been looking into repairing mine and one place came back with a price of $295 a rim. For tiny nicks, not even major curb rashes!! They claimed they would have to make a whole new program for them for the machine, then run them through one at a time, and that the BBS Diamond Silver color is extremely hard to match, blah blah blah. Another mobile repair guy quoted me $95/rim but when I emailed him again asking about the paint matching I never heard back.

Maybe it's because there isn't really any shop in the area that really cares about aftermarket parts like in SoCal or SoFlorida?

The CHs are too old for me..and too popular...I had them on my 2001 Audi S4....and then put them on another Audi I owned. I would go for the LMs...but as you know.they are more expensive.

Is CH forged? I thought they are casted. Forged always better than casted on BBS. However, I am not sure about MAT cast and forge.
