Thanks! I think this looks so much more classy than black plus you lose some of the lines!

Also, I have no idea how the CSL wheels can be classified as "ghetto", maybe she meant to say ghetto fabulous.
Haha I almost forgot I made this thread! She has since admitted to me that she does not think the wheels are ghetto and she actually really likes them. She also trys to get back together with me constantly haha

Thank you!! I agree that I would lose some detail if I made them black!

That's super clean. I like it! Glad you didn't go with black wheels. =) I think you should vinyl your window trim black or something.

Biased opinion, but I like em better in the matte finish.

But on your car, silver looks good.

Your ex has poor taste, I think your m359's look sick! I have the same wheels and in black (also have a red car) and now I'm digging the silver, very sharp, don''t let that ho get you down!

I personally don't think there is anything ghetto about CSL style wheels. The only ghetto part about them might be that the silver is so shiny it kind of looks like a dull chrome? I did notice that theyre really shiny but they also have less than 1,000 miles on them,

FYI My ex is the biggest BXXCH I have met and I have a feeling she is trying to make me feel bad about the car. Keep in mind she used to drive my car and LOVED it...I also know she really liked CSL style wheels because we were looking at them before we broke up.

She also said I should raise the car back up. Kind of hypocritical of her considering her audi and her gti were both slammed on H&R coilovers.

I know I shouldn't let her opinion bother me but I'm second guessing everything now because I also know she'll be honest with me and won't care if she hurts my feelings. Maybe my friends all tell me they're not ghetto because they don't want to offend me.

I think she just got a little jealous though because I washed, polished, and waxed my car this weekend and I think it looks great. Her new bf just bought a navy blue automatic 128 and I don't think it looks nearly as good as mine and she's prob a little upset that the car she used to drive is looking so fresh.

Sorry for the rant...anyways, do you guys think I shoud get the wheels powdercoated black or gunmetal instead? I just think the wheels have nice lines that kind of get lost when they're black. Should I raise my car? I was at a meet this weekend and my car looked like a monster truck still compared to most of the cars there.

I personally think it looks fine with the Red paintwork...I have Matt Titanium coloured 19'' Breyton GTS's on my White E90 330i and these look great against the White...your silver/red combo looks good!

I'm new to this site so not sure if to late to reply. The wheels look great on the car. I have an ex and I've learned never to ask her opinion that's why their an ex. She is just jealous cause your wheels probably look better then her. My ex only has an opinion when my 1,500 a month alimony is a day late. My current wife said the wheels look hot no ghetto showing at all. Enjoy the wheels, car, and freedom my friend.

Look at it this way the car can't give u an opinion

Car looks good. Setup is on point. Certainly don't see anything ghetto about it, in fact it's the same as most people's cars on the forum.
