Question Borbet Type XL 18x8

Anyone have these wheels on their E92? Looking for pics and haven't had any luck in my search.

These are the Machined w/Black accent...

Those are the wheels I like for my jet black e92. You can see a virtual picture of them on a black e92 at the Tire Rack website.

Yeah I saw the virtual picture, I think it looks pretty good. Surprised I can't find any real pictures of them though.

I'm planning to use these as my winters... a little late to the show this year. I have a winter beater but it hurts not being able to drive my E92.

I would not consider the Borbet line a downgrade. This is a very good quality wheel, made in Germany.

I don't do PMs, sorry. Email would be the best form of electronic contact.
