Alufelgen SF-71 or Avant Garde M359?

Debating myself which I like more? I have an E90, Msport, Space Grey on stock sport suspension. Regardless of the wheel I select, it will be in hyper silver/regular silver.

Any comments concerning quality of both wheels?

Feel free to let me know which you think would look better in my car.

Thanks!!!

I went with SF-71 because of the various color choices. But, I think M359 looks more aggressive.

Well in terms of quality, both wheels are low-pressure cast which is good. The Avant Garde M359 does have a deeper concavity to it than the Alufelgens SF-71 from what I can see.

I have hyper black SF71 and love them every day. It would be nice to have the 359 avant-garde in regular silver too. You can't go wrong with either but I am perfectly happy with my wheels.

I think it all depends how much concavity you want. I decided to go with SF 71s because they are different than the standard csl rep styles.
