Sumil - I do love those alloys you have bro - they look blaady great.. but part of me says they look that good because of the contrast one gets from putting them on darker coloured cars and that's just my opinion to anyone taking offence lol..

I've set my heart on Concave / Deep Dish - but if I struggle to find my perfect alloys LOL.. I'll keep your offer on the table :-) as always, much appreciated!

Ok.. can someone pretty please Photoshop these alloys on my Silver E92 so I can get a much better idea!?

A Photoshop version with it being silver all round;
A Photoshop version with darker centres;
A Photoshop version with it being Anthracite colour?


I know itís asking for alot from someone but this could be a winner if it looks right... Thanks a tonne in advance

they havent been done yet on an E92 and you can get Dips to colour the centres any colour you want! make em a little more unique!
they have both the dish and a concave! best of both worlds and they are at a good price too!

get them wrapped in Falken 452's and you car would be lookin sweetttt!!!

yea stay away from CSL's etc just too common at the moment...
agree, these are different.
the cades apollos are on plenty of cars.

Ooops. That last pic didn't re-size as I'd have expected.

You could go for the new 3SDm 0.05. Also concave, but with a retro "F40" look to them...





They would certainly be a different look on a E92...

Yep. I do like them. Like I said, they are more of a retro look rather than a modern look, but with the concave, I think they look good.

Obviously not for everyone, you as an example, but I think they are cool.

Not liking the wheels posted in the link mate.

I think these would suit your car a treat, pity they have been out of stock such a long time now or I'd have a set on mine right now...

May be its just me but don't the 3SDMs, as nice as they are, look too similar to csls?

check this forum member's ride!
http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ghlight=silver

Each to their own I suppose.

Cades Apollo (as someone earlier suggested) look nice and would certainly be a nice alternative to the OEM 230s I've currently got, perhaps too similiar?! I don't know. They're DEF up there somewhere... These gunmetal ones are ok too http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroo...h=51_23_122_32

- Not black and a good contrast to silver (plus complimenting the other black accents I'm going for).... but I fear I may not like darker colour alloys as I've never rly had a liking for them personally... always prefer the clean / fresh / silver rims... maybe I should look beyond that.... argh!!

I have however just seen Cades Castilo on Mark's site and all I can say is WOW! What a set of wheels!! Shame they're not in 19's!!

http://www.bmautosport.co.uk/showroo...h=51_23_122_32

The probalem with these are that they won't then match with the silver / black theme... or will they?

I say silver / black theme.... but I've only really changed the bonnet / boot BMW badge so far! Plan is / was to get gloss black grills, gloss black 335d lettering and re-do the window trims + tints... Arghhh LOLLLL.

Well it's personal taste isn't it.. some say it's great, others dislike. C'est la vie. I think they look good but for a silver car, may not give me the look I'm going for...

You could say that it's just a matter of taste but that goes for anything. Some of those wheels are a matter of taste in the same way that transvestite midget porn is a matter of taste.
