I'll make sure that has been done to the 60k mile car. The more i think about it, the more i'm leaning toward the higher mileage jetblack one. It's the color i want, the mileage i can live with, and i'll have a warranty for three years as opposed to a year and 7 months. Again i appreciate all the help you guys have chimed in with, and hopefully i will be bringing an e92 to the next meet.

So I think I've narrowed down my wheel choices for the spring. What do you guys think of the BMW Performance 313 vs the Performance 269? I'm having a tough time deciding between the two.

Also,I saw alot of E92 MSports in Ireland over Christmas with the 225Ms and they also look very good. I think I prefer the gray / polished combination of the Performance wheels to regular silver though - thoughts?

269 as Nick would put it FTMFW! Don't waste your time with the spindly 313s Gary!

Haha, I knew what you would vote for! The 313s are a little spindly, but I do like the basic 5 double spoke design and the fact that they are more concave at the rear than the 269s. They'd also be easier to clean. The 269s could be a little classier looking It's a tough choice without being able to see them in person. Too bad there aren't any around.

I dig the 269s, the 225's look like they belong on a e90 228, and the 313s look like they're meant for 135's.

Didn't mean for it to be a bad thing, just to check if it was aftermarket.

Try to make it out to IND while you are in IL to get a ride in their SC M3 and report back

313

225 meh

269

too bad you can get a nice set of aftermarket wheels for the same price. I'd pick up a set of RAC Monolites for that kind of coin

269's are fly but not sure on an E92 since I saw them on Anvar's 135 first. 313's I totally love. They show off the brakes (which I know aren't flashy but they fill a 19" wheel pretty well). Like the 269's, I like how the spokes extend to the rim on the 313's. I'd have to see pics of the 269's on an E92. Anyone see a 335is in the sheet metal yet??

Anvar is shoping for blowers and shifter knobs fo sho!

Haha I know, At least it's not as bad/loud as it was with the former exhaust on that dyno day. That was amusingly loud and obnoxious. I couldn't be happier with the AMS system on it now

I wish I could have had more free time down here, but I'm on my way back already. Man I would've loved a ride or even view in the supercharged M3. The videos for them are very impressive

I'm not really a fan of aftermarket wheels, except for some BBS styles. I really liked the RX IIs and asked Kevin at Imola if they were available, but they have been discontinued.

I saw a couple of 335is' at Motorwerks months ago when I was picking up my car. On the street I have seen only one, in LeMans blue. I actually saw it going up and down Lyndale near where I live 3 times in one day last August. Haven't seen it once since then!

When I see pics like this I really want the 313s. These are the 313Ms as fitted to a 335is, so the color and finish is different to the BMW Performance wheels, but the basic shape is the same. I think they look f'in awesome, especially from the rear quarter view
