Pics needed! (TiAg with black wheels/polished lip)

Hi,


I've been searching for new summer wheels and I'm almost ready to pull the trigger on some BBS reps. The only thing is that the whole silver ones look a bit boring on a TiAg car. I really like the look of black or gunmetal center with a polished lip but I'm afraid it'll look too "ricey". I want a nice, clean and subtle look and not too much a stare-creater. So everyone who has pictures of E9x with this combo please post them! Also every opinion is welcome Thanks in advance!

Here is pics of the wheels I mean



Here's an TiAg E92 with the silver ones, looks a bit boring to me unfortunately

I say do gunmetal! I think black takes away from lms, reps or not..

To be honest, I'm also leaning towards the gunmetals. Please share your opinions guys, need them with this!

why buy replicas when you can buy the real deal?

paint finish quality & build quality on replicas are mediocre & don't belong on a BMW

these BBS LM wheels are for sale if the price is right =)

Its chrome but with a little distance, gives you an idea. Im getting ready to paint the entire barrel TIAG myself. Get away from the same ole appeal. btw car looks clean bro! love the gunmetal face, looks clean with TIAG!

Thanks a lot for chiming in everyone! Great pics and a lot of good looking cars in one thread Can't wait to get my wheels on after seeing these pictures

And for why not buying real ones? Of course the price is an issue and even if I had that kind of money, sure as hell wouldn't spend it on wheels Also maybe I'm a bit weird, but I'm not very fond of that "doublelip" design of the original LM's. I think this sort of design looks cleaner http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroo...%20%289%29.JPG but I know, beauty is in the eye of the beholder btw those are the gunmetal ones which I'm going to be ordering in a couple of days
