    Hi there

    I am after a set of 18" csl replica alloys, I found a member on here who posted a thread with photos of his wheels and they are exactly what i am after, the problem is though the guy hasnt logged on for a month or so im not sure if he will reply to my message.

    Here is the original thread:

    http://www.bimmerforums.co.uk/forum/...-sport-t31701/

    If anyone can help this would be great

    thanks in advance

    ben

    Thanks very much for the replies, Magik - your wheels look stunning just what i am after. I need to drop my car aswell, i have a 318 convertible, do you have any ideas which springs i should buy? I may buy spacers aswell.

    I have contacted extreme wheels so hopefully i can get a set of these badboys!

    looks bloody smart after lowering!!! my car is lower at back than fron tcurrently and i want that nose down stance, so may only need to lower the front as back is pretty low....I already have a set of 18" michelen tyres that i bought about a month ago so hopefully can just swap these over to my new csl wheels!

    I live in east sussex so could possibly go pick up the wheels!

    Thanks for the link to the springs! Did you fit them yourself?

    Thanks

    nah i have a mate who is a mechanic he charged me £100 for fitting with a clean as well lol he's a real nice guy

    and yeah you probably can just switch them but check with mark on the tyres! and after driving my car for a while no rubbing or anything! and my car looked lower at the back than the front to start with but now looks low all round and the nose is slightly dropped too and they are 100% great quality springs

    and if you get staggered you'd have to stretch your rear tyres but thats not a bad thing!

    but post pics when you get them, mine came next day :O lol

    nice one! Ill try find a local garage to do for a decent price! did you say your springs were only £157 ! thats a very good price!...would they be different springs for me as mines a convertible?

    Definately will post a pic when lowered and bought the wheels, rears will have a slight stretch as my tyres are same size all round and i want the staggered ones!

    Cant wait!

    Hopefully mark has some wheels in stock!

    hahaha yeah £157 with next day delivery which was £15 lol but i had to get them on!

    and i don't think there too different in price might cost more to get them fitted but i doubt it! and yeah get a grange to fit them and don't leave your centre caps on when you get the wheels fitted too, they don't line the badges up with the m badges and so on lol

    plus i got some new bolts too to finish it off heres a pic all lined up and with the new bolts:

    and yeah the stretch will reduce the chance of rubbing as well and might look even nicer

    even I'm looking forward to seeing your wheels on mate
