I feel ya on that one, I had LMs on my other car so I'm dying for wheels and my car isn't even here yet, but I know it'll be a while so I might go the same route and pick up some Reps until I can get $ saved up to buy something like the LMs again.

Don't go to Miles Auto Wash in cool springs otherwise you will get the urge.

They sell HRE Rims and BBS Rims or have them there

Yeah, Miles is right near where I live, and I have been there before with my old car, but I never take my BMW there. Those damn brushes just scare me...

I'm not big on HRE's because I don't like the whole reverse lip on a wheel, which is part of why the LMs are such an appeal to me. If I can't get a stepped lip I won't consider them. Luckily a lot of the expensive wheel companies just offer reverse lips so it makes my selection process a lot easier. I am considering go back to something more lightweight like when I had my TE37's vs my LMs. I like the RE30's a lot.
