Best look-alike E9X M3 GTS wheels for 335i?

Are there any wheels that look like the E9X M3 GTS wheels, but are a little cheaper?

I have 2009 E92 space gray 335i, and I'm looking to switch out my OEM 18" star spoke style 189 wheels with something with black "v" spokes.

Turner Motorsport actually sells the E9X M3 GTS wheels, and they're $2,339.80 for the set of 4:

Would they even work on my 335i?

The closest thing I've found so far is the Enkei Tuning Raijin, for $1070 at Tire Rack. Much cheaper, looks pretty close (7 spokes instead of 8), and comes in 19" -- thought I'd go up to 19", since I like the look.

I'm using these for daily driving mostly, with some autocross and maybe 1 track day/year. Switching wheels mostly for looks, but I don't want anything crappy that would actually hurt performance for some reason.

Any advice? I'm a total newbie at this, so please point out if I'm missing something totally obvious that would make this a really bad idea.

Thanks!

Just some friendly advice:
19x9 35 et
19x10 38 et

Contact A L A N at m o d b a r ga i n s for the best deal.

I got this set back in November and could not be happier with the look of the car.

Good luck,

I would go as far as saying that they are identical. If and when you buy them all you have to do is get the OEM center caps, M logo sticker, tires (obvious) and valve stems.

Slap them on and enjoy!

Yes, the M359 wheels are pretty much spot on to those. If you need some help or a quote on wheels and/or tires shoot me a PM and can help you out
