When would these come and how close are they to the sparkling graphite body colour?

About 4-6 weeks and they are a bit darker than the sparkling graphite but match the OEM E92 M3 18" gunmetal color.

It seems as though those of us that are most likely to buy and actually voiced our opinions all wanted the 18".

These will be offered in a 19" version at first, we are strongly considering the 18s as well.

I just saw these on a sparkling graphite M3 at the track-4 sessions and from 10 feet you couldn't tell the wheels were dirty. It is a sweet looking wheel and I had just been wondering if I can get these.

I would buy a set of 18" now, would not buy 19".

Thanks for the input guys. So far these are very popular in 19's, 18s could be on their way soon though.

Only a difference of 4 votes and the 18's are the vocal minority. I'd say do both. By the time you get around to 18's I'll have moved on.

For al those who want 18's why don't you buy them off the M3 guys who are selling theirs for something else on their cars??

I can't wait to see these in 19", love this wheel.

Well they are pretty much the same offset as the AC Schnitzer wheels, they are 8.5" ET33 front and 9.5" ET21.5 Rear, the style 220M are 8.5" ET29 front and 9.5" ET23 rear.

So with 225/40 and 255/35 tyres they will fit no problem according to someone who has now sold a couple of sets to E90 owners. Maybe they won't fit the E92 if there is less clearance on the coupe?

I will give it a try over the next couple of days and report back with some photos.
