They appear to be very good quality wheels, low pressure cast with reasonable weights ~21-23 pounds for 19" I believe. They are only available in 19" right now for E9x fitment

Yeah, I guess you're right, I would need a 10mm spacer in the fronts. Thanks!

Hello,

Alufelgen makes top notch quality low pressure cast wheels for the 3 series. They use Low pressure casting which is the same manufacturing method BMW uses for their OEM wheels.

Alufelgen developed the wheels to fit the e9X like a glove with perfect offsets so that the wheels fall perfectly flush under the fenders.

The CS7's are the best CSL replica wheels out there. They are more geometrically precise to the original CSL's than any other.

The SF-71's, Alufelgen's own original design wheel, were designed to optimize concavity, with maximum weight reduction in mind. These wheels are the lightest in their class weighing in at ~23.8lbs for the fronts. The Special Edition Diamond Cut SF-71's are the cream of the crop, with a machine faced finish and powdercoated windows, these are even lighter weighing in at ~22.0lbs for the fronts.

All Alufelgen wheels are powdercoated to ensure the best, durable finish. This minimizes chipping and flaking to a virtual 'ZERO'.

IF you are going to get cast wheels, look no further.

Here's a thread with some pics

If you have any questions, I'm at your service.

Cheers,

Setian
