current(197):


197 powdercoated gunmetal:


197 TA style:


v710:


V710 matte(came out navy):


Alufelgen CSL:


V13:


Other:


**note** some of these pics are unrealistic due to the pictures I had available at the time of the chop.

V713 hands down. Easily the best looking wheel in MY opinion on that list, with the V710 in a close second :

V713 by far!

V710

CSL and others look too close to your 197 IMO..

BUT... I'd vote for V715s, since I think E92s look the best with some type of lip.

I think the VMR 713 is one totally sexy wheel. A great wheel if you are going for a sexy aftermarket look. If you want a more OEM look but still hot, the Alufelgen CSL is the way to go. The concavity of that wheel is impressive. If it were me, I'd lean toward the Alufelgen CSL, but I'm an old man (44), so don't listen to me!

Alufelgen CSL's hands down. I dropped them off at a local rim repair/powdercoating shop. This guy is a huge wheel fanatic. First thing he tells me "Wow, those are beautiful looking ZCP wheels. I thought they only fit E46 M3's. How will they fill on your e92?"

I told him "These are reps made by a new company." He didn't believe me so I had to pull out my PDA, log onto e90post.com and show him the Alufelgen CSL threads. This dude was shocked by the quality and finish of the wheel.

No buyers remorse here!
