Photo request: 18" CSL rep not dropped on an E92

I need to see some pics of the 18" CSL rep that is not dropped on an e92.
I am trying to see if it will look better than the 19" (also not dropped) because I might not going to drop my car.

don't do it. trust me on this one. you will regret getting 18s unless you plan on using them for the track.

+1 They will look too small for the car

19" on stock sport will look 10x better

Many regret going with 18s instead of 19s but you rarely hear about the opposite.

wheels regardless is going to look weird if they are aftermarket on stock suspension (sport or not). However if you have an e90 then you can get away with it more compared to e92, but 19s are the way to go in my opinion. i strongly suggest you opt for the 19s over 18s. That way if you plan on getting some coilovers/springs in the future, 19s would fit perfectly. 18s ftl. 19s ftw

19's look much better. I am also planning CSL's for my 335. Not sure which vendor to buy. Any suggestions / deals?

What type of reps are these 18"? They aren't VMR reps?

Hey BMW!,

if you don't want to lower the car it isn't wise to go for the 19" cls.
The combination with 18" wil be a better choice.

But my question to you is why you don't want to lower your car?
That in cmbination with 19" cls must look very sick.

Greetings from the netherlands.
