H&R Premium Performance. I think the ride is great, not harsh at all. Very similar to the OEM sport suspension. No clunking or squeaking. I love the adjustability they offer.

I don't know the person I bought them from had the caps, badges, and bmw valve stem caps already on.

"reps"? What's that mean? Replicas? Replacements?

And, if I were to want to buy the BMW logo stickers for the center of the wheel, where would I purchase them so as to get the correct size?

They are replicas. The BMW roundels are not stickers they are caps. I'm not sure where you would pruchase them. If they are the same size as OEM I'm sure a dealer would have them. I'm sure the place you purchase the wheels from would know where to get some or at least know what size you would need.

One more question: I think I see in your first photo that there is a small ///M insignia on one of the spokes. Is that correct? Its hard to tell, even with zoom. If so, wanna make sure I can find those. Pretty sick.

Nothing better than an ex girlfriend to try to make you feel like crap. Did she also tell you that the last guy she was with was 4" bigger than you? Don't believe the hype.

Yeah it's pretty rediculous that I listened to her opinion at all.

UPDATE: So I'm talking to her again this morning and she says, "oh I take back what I said about your wheels, they're actually really nice. I thought they were chrome for some reason before" and I was like, "no shit, do you really think the designers would put a ghetto looking wheel on their cars?"

ANyways....I feel really stupid that this thread got to be 7 pages long. but thanks to everyone who helped me to not doubt these wheels for a second anymore!

Don't worry. I have the same exact wheel on a TiAg e92 and when I first got it it was way too shiny and didn't match the TiAg color well. But eventually it got duller and now it's perfect!!

If the car is not an M3, or M5 than I don't believe they look good. You've asked for an opinion and you've recieved it.

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I didn't ask for your opinion on M parts on non M cars. I asked if they were too shiny or "ghetto"

Yeah I think it's partially because they are so new and I was looking at them right after they were washed. They look a lot more dull as soon as they get some brake dust on them.

I know it's rediculous how many responces this got...

I have a lot of respect for 135's and 1M's obviously....but I honestly would have bought an a4 or something else before a base, automatic 128. Would have much rather had a 328 too I don't get it.

i LOLd at this thread. Exs say anything to try to get in your head. You did the right thing after the break, made the car she loved super shiny/detailed/nice. Suits her right.

Also, I have no idea how the CSL wheels can be classified as "ghetto", maybe she meant to say ghetto fabulous.

The fact that your trim is still chrome makes the mags look even better. I have the same set & I love how the rims stand out in that color. If you spray them black you will only be able to see the rim up close.
