I just bought a set of reps for my wife's e36 sedan in white. I'll post up some pics when we get them mounted up. its a xmas gift suprise so you'll have to wait like she is.

These are a few pics I found while researching for a good example.

These are the same ones I have ordered and seem to be the best replica wheel out there.

1st set look good. The set on that green e36 look like hell. M6 reps HAVE to be concave to look good

You dont think the replica's on the green are concave? I was also thinking about the hyperblack CSL replicas. But I see a lot of other E36's with those. I havent seen anyone with the M6 replicas here in New York City.

dunno, the reps on the green e36 look kinda weird
I hate the looks of Alpina reps, you can always recognize them as replicas.
Awkward

the ones on the black e36 i believe are true M6 wheels, and as you can see they required some creative modifications to make work.

Ya i know i haven't been here in a while, got out of the bmw scene when i got my bike last summer, now that i can afford them again... here i am. my new wife and i just bought a `90 325i in brilliantrot (mine) and a `92 325i in alpineweiss II (hers).

Like i said, i'll post up some pictures when hers are moutned up here next week

Devin,

Congrats on getting married. Where are you guys living now?

Sorry for the hijack.

I have seen the M6 wheels on a 540 also and they look pretty slick.

i'm gonna do the m3 front bumper and mirrors shortly and she really likes the ltw flag in black. the angel eyes are also a stocking stuffer. Tint will probably be done in the coming weeks.

it has now...
Bilstein Sports
H&R Blues
6000k HID Headlights

i now know why people have so many issues with the e36. my problem list is 3x's as long as my mod list....
right now i'm busy runnin through the whole car wiring trying to find a few shorts. I already repaired the infamous trunk wiring, and it only solved the fuse #7 blowing.

So this is why all e36 owners want an e30. my e30 is damn near perfect and i have barely touched it...
