Check out the Alufelgen CS7 wheels if you are heading the replica route.

http://www.google.com/images?q=alufe...w=1280&bih=683

Many people think they look more like OEM than the VMRs. They're powder coated vs. painted (VMRs). Powder coated finishes are more durable than painted finishes from what I've read. I've also read that the production method Alufelgen uses is stronger than VMRs.

I've been looking at the Alufelgen's for some time now. They're new to the game so not a lot of people have them. I should add that I do not have personal experience with either wheel, I've just done research on both.

Both VMR and Alufelgen have more aggressive offsets than ZCPs, potentially eliminating the need for spacers depending on your taste.

Good luck. As soon as I get a bonus I'm pulling the trigger. Let me know what you end up with.

I love my SF-71's !! in terms of looks, I find them the best looking among all CSL reps, including OEM CSLs ! of course it's just my opinion.

The SF-71 isn't technically a CSL Rep. They have 7 sets of spokes compared to CSL's 8. They do look similar though.
