Wheels - what a mission!

Been looking at getting a set of 19" wheels for my e90. Originally I was thinking about CSL reps but to be honest, as good as they look they are getting quite common. Been looking at loads of wheels since and pretty much had my heart set on a set of Cades Tyrus rims with polished lip/black centres. There's so many to choose from its been a nightmare deciding on what to go for...

BUT after seeing Thievz car I've decided on a set of LMR reps with gunmetal centres. I love the dish on them and the centres are lovely. I've not seen them in the flesh but can only imagine they are stunning.

Fingers crossed I'll be taking a trip down to BMAutosport this time next month to collect and fit can't wait. My car will be lowered next Saturday with a bit of luck. The Eibach ProLines are here ready to go on.

Next mods will be a subtle boot lip spoiler in black (not a big fan of carbon bolt ons) and then some dark rear lights and maybe some replacement front headlights (LCI or Depo, still undecided).

Roll on end of April

Sounds good, but I don't understand why its a mission when you haven't done anything.. yet!

Finding the right wheels can be a chore, it could be easier if you went and looked at them in person rather than loosing sleep over it

Haha I meant a mission sorting out what sort to get. I live quite a way from BMA so that's out of the question. I'm sorted now, just looking forward to getting them on!

I cant find the linea corse le mans reps anywhere in the uk! Had email from one supplier claiming to be the sole importer telling me they wont sell them anymore due to how bad the polished lip goes on them! :-( my plan out the window!

I've spoke to mark at BMA about them. The rims shouldn't be a problem if any laquer chips are covered quick enough and a very mild cleaner used on them (and sealed). That was my worry about polished rims but I'm just gonna do it, you only live once eh

Remap is deffo on the cards too for sure

Creepy I can't justify a trip to look then a separate trip to buy. Im almost certain the lmr's are gonna be perfect. If not I'll choose something else on the day

Nice choice, but for me the LMR are a bit much.

The older LM are more classy IMO, really suit the E90/E91.

Re CSLs, you could hardly say they are 'common'.

Can't say I've seen any on the road in 12 months (except on a CSL)

There's a few on here, but how many e9x are there in total in the UK?
