OEM CSL wheels

Hi all,

I've come across these m3 csl alloys on ebay which are meant be the genuine, they actually work out a bit cheaper than some good reps from VMR or AluFelgens which cant be right can it?

also i have a pre lci 2007 e92 whats the widest rear wheels i can run without ANY extra work, im on stock m sport suspension.

link for csl alloys :http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/19-INCH-BM...#ht_500wt_1287

I don't think they are genuine as the real ones should have BMW embossed between the M badge and the center badge.

Nope. AluFelgen get made somewhere in china or korea and get stamped at the face of alloy with such numbers.

Genuine M3 CSL wheels have a front offset of ET44 not ET38 as per the Ebay ad.

ET27 (as per the Ebay ad) is too aggressive an offset for the E92 and will cause the stock size/larger tyres to rub,you could of course get the arches rolled.

Yes they are;
ITALIAN MADE LOW PRESSURE CASTING >>

ALUFELGEN uses only low-pressure casting for their manufacturing and are all italian-made.

Thats is what they say.
I cannot name a guy, but he is well know up on many forums and he deals with all sort of wheel.
According to him, all of these are chinese or koreans.
I am not sure who to trust TBH.
