Good old Ebay

Been looking for a set of these for months now, found a set on ebay yesterday morning, after a couple of phone calls and a trip to Walsall last night, I managed to do a deal with the seller.

Your correct they would look better on your car, because yours are damaged

I cant decide which I like better - the 230's or 225M's.

Both cars look great.

At least the 230's will be easier cleaned!!

True, but choosing a wheel because of how easy it is to clean is IMHO a cop out.

Due to the job i prefer the 230's as correct they are easier to clean and keep in trim.I would have the 225's also but im afraid my car spends most of its time in a airport car park and this is becoming more and more regular.

Wouldnt say its a cop out its more...sensible thinking on the owners part lol.

230's are the best in my opinion. Some angles they look like bleedin 20's other angles they look just right. In the dark they look like axes!!

Love it!

Creepy, Budgie, both look excellent. Any insurance implications? I've been mulling over a set of the 320Si alloys for mine but no way paying BMW prices

Bumps - believe me you don't want my alloys.

They are bitch to clean - so they always stay dirty.

I think they would look good if they were anthracite or gloss black.

I quite like the 230's
