+100 i really don't see how you guys are saying gold for his car.. he's got mad carbon fiber.. so his car is pretty much black and white and if you throw gold on there i think it'd look weird..

Too many black and white E92's dude.... almost every e92 here looks 90% identical to one another. Go with something way different if you are going to give up the HRE's.

LM-R is very racey look so it looks better on the M3s.
In my opinion, LM on 335i has the ultimate classy look.
Since you have a white E92, I would say Gold LM is the ultimatest (!) ultimate wheels for your AW E92.

If gold isn't your thing bro....then 20" DBK LM's it is. Don't give me crap about the roads in NJ cause you and I both know you barely drive your cars lol. At least with the LM's the entire wheel is forged including the barrels so they should handle a bit of punishment. The face size between the 19 and 20" LM's is a huge difference.

i think you should save up for the HRE CF43's.. talk about being a rare wheel.. that's my dream wheel and it'd go with the theme of your car much better..

LMs are better looking. LM-Rs are just more expensive.

I could go for those but honestly not sure how I feel about the dark lip (cf) as well as the fact the lip sizes are the same front & rear!
