Oh, and it's about $100 to have them shipped.

I think they are low on stock, so get to it.
LOL!!! thanx! One more question: what offset are you running...
there's 22, 30 and 45 for the rear offset. I want it to look flush with the car....

The et30 is what they recommend for e90/92. et22 is M3 offset and is too aggressive and will rub, and et45 is conservative and you will need spacers. Here's couple of pics with et30.

This is the lowest you get, I know the JLevi sells them too for the same price, EAS (I think that's the name) all sell for $899 for 19s, but if you want 18s **********s sells them for $749 I think (special going on). I haven't seen lower than $899 for 19s anywhere and I looked everywhere before buying.

WOW! My arm scales really work! Well alright then...that equates to almost 5lb of unsprung weight per wheel. With nitrogen I might even save more! ha!

Does anyone know if they are lighter than the $2000+ "real ones"?

I have the same answer...no where cheaper. Some places the same.

30 offset is perfect. Slight rubbing inside the wheel well somewhere (will investigate and post) but the outside is perfect.

Yes and no.. The OEM M3 Competition wheels are the same weight, but the original CSL wheels from Germany are 21-22lbs. And the OEM m3 comp are 8.0 et47 front and 9.5 rear et27, the original CSL are 8.5 et44 fronts and 9.5 et22 rears.

The rear really look like 10" though the way they fit. The ride is still nice. A little more rigid than before. I think I had a rub on a big bump today but will have to confirm as I live with them.

They are painted black on the inside so they just have this cavernous look. They are also going to not show the brake dust which will be nice. I do wish the tires protected the rims a little further (Kuhmo's).

The images don't do them justice. They are stunning in person and flicker in the sun. Now if I could just afford brakes...
Thanks for your order!!

Couple sets left in stock in hyperblack.

lived with them for a few weeks now. still loving them.

there is a rub on the inside of the rear wheel wells. seems to be wearing down now so not as frequent. as I noted, the rears seem almost like 10"+ with all that rubber. Fit, spacing, and look is perfect.

they do in fact hide the brake dust very well, becoming even darker and a subtle matte finish with time. Then clean up beautifully with a soft wheel brush and mild soap.

The added rubber makes the rear stick longer before breaking loose, helping with infrequent but fun 'hard launches'. I do use more caution letting the rear step out as it is a little more sudden. (and I like my car in one piece)

I mentioned before the inside of the rims appear to be painted black. They do APPEAR to be painted black, but it is simply the dark chrome on a rough surface, which is therefore not 'mirror' reflective, but gives a deep dark appearance. I really like it. I would like it even more if these looked even a little darker overall as the 'smoked' appearance looks aggressive.

Everyone mentions the need for a drop. I am considering it but question the alteration to performance for typical street driving. It's also a leased vehicle so I don't want to get too far gone. I'll buy and mod the next gen. Or damn it all and pony up for a M3.

Will post more pics when I am not sneaking a post in at the office.

Bombing out to Vegas tonight. See what the heat and the speed do to the tires. Radar detector is on and volume up...let the journey begin.
