Default okay, is no one alive in this forum?

C'mon where is everybody?

I picked up a 06 M roadster in July of this year (only had 3.3k on the odo), ans am looking to to some light mods, mainly cosmetics (front yellow reflectors have to go), probably going to black out the grille and probably black out the M emblems or delete a few of them.

New wheels? CSL's gunmetal vs matte black (my car is silver gray metallic), the stock 18's have alot of rubber on them so I won't be doing the swap soon.

Did everyone w/ am M roady/coupe just up and die?

If so I am the last.........................THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE




sorry I am kinda drunk

The norml Brilltain Silver color of Competition Package wheels looks great with Silver Gray - leave them stock (okay, I loathe black wheels on street cars - they make sense for winter wheels or track wheels only, imo).

My own M has none of the ///M badges - think it looks cleaner.

well I will probably leave the rear badge, but the side one's have to go,

is it worth the extra money to buy oem ZCP wheels? I know they are light (and forged), and look badass on the Z4, they should have put those on the stock Z4 M's instead of the 18's

they are NOT forged. they are spun cast.

You can pick up a set new for $1800, used for hundreds less; no other wheel that looks as good on the car is as cheap.

the vmr vb3 (csl reps) can be had for much less, weigh less (for same sizes or slightly bigger) and also allow you to run a bigger size in the front and rear (8.5 or 9.0 front and 9.5 or 10.0 in the rear)

I'd argue with that point. Forgestars are pretty cheap, look good and are light. CSL reps in 19s weight a good amount and which is keeping me from purchasing a set.

They weight less than OEM E46 ZHP wheels? Really? Wowza.

they are close. oem zcps are 23+ front and 24 lbs or so rear. the csl reps are like 24 front for an 8.5 which is wider, and the rear 9.5 is 25+ lbs. so really they is not a significant amount. yea you gain a little bit, but also the wider front enables wider tires. the 10" rear csl rep is 26 lbs...

I guess it depends, but the VMR reps weight 25 for 8.5s and 26 9.5s so probably about 27 for 10s.

Pretty damn heavy compared to what else is out there imo. Not to say they don't look great, but if I am personally going to buy wheels I hope they'd be lighter or on par with stock.

It's all relative. There are many wheels available for low 20 lbs and I think we all know rotational mass is the biggest enemy of all mass.
