Alufelgen SF 71

Hi,

I'm about to order a set of wheels. I think I'm settling with the Alufelgen SF 71. I'm just having a hard time deciding on what color. I was thinking of getting the hyper black, titianium gunmetal, or sports gunmetal. It would help if there are pics of these on a E90 SGM. Just not sure which color flows with the SGM. I don't have any other mods besides the blacklines and black grills.

I have the Titanium Gunmetal on my AW, and the contrast is exactly what I was looking for. Not too dark like black or sports gunmetal would have been, but doesn't blend like hyper silver does.

I think it'd look good on SGM, but would tend to blend, as the colors are close. I'd expect it to look similar to black wheels on a black car, hyper silver on Titanium Silver, or white painted on AW. If you're looking for contrast so they stand out, it's probably not the right choice.

You can see what it looks like here:

thanks for the pictures. I'm thinking of picking up the Diamond Cut Titanium. They're not too dark and from the looks of the pictures has the right amount of contrast. Just haven't seen it on SGM yet.

I checked the thread. Sadly no pics of the one I want. I'm just going to go with the diamond cut titanium.

Wherever you buy them from, don't pay more than about $950-$1000 shipped to your door. That's what they're worth.

Currently, we are out of this finish. So far we dont have ETA when the next batch will be here.

Let us know if there is any other finish you are looking for.

Zero, the Alufelgen SF-71 wheels have been solid for me since their release.

Love my silver set! They look even better in person than on pictures. I've only had them on for a little over 24 hours and have had a handful of people come up to me asking what wheels they were and how much they like them

Seems like most of the vendors do not have them in stock. I'm stuck waiting. I want to order mine this week and get them on already!
