    325i is enough..



    nice ride, though.. but even if the rims do look spot on, it's kinda weird to see them on a VW. wouldn't you be better off with the BBS LM?

    I guess it comes down to being individual,i wanted my car to be like no other mk4,i'm a big fan of the oem+ look and these wheels fitted the theme perfectly.Although BBS splits are very nice wheels in their own right,you do see quite a lot of VW's running them.The CSL's are by far the nicest wheels BMW have ever fitted to a car,the curve of the wheel suits the mk4 shape.

    Would i love to own an M3 CSL? Damm right i would,they are amazing machines

    No banishing

    Some people questioned why i used BMW centres,but i prefer the look of the wheel with the blue/white flash,got some pics of them with VW centres and they just didn't look as good.

    Just think, if you bought a BMW your whole car would look good, not just your wheels

    Just because my car is faster,and has better wheels than yours doesn't mean you should break out your big wooden spoon


    Here's a pic to show the badge really does make a huge difference to the overall look.I'm the first to admit the BMW badge has improved the look of the car

    Yes,18" reps,not a chance would genuine CSL's fit due to the low offset of that back wheel,they'd poke out a mile.
    Got them off ebay for around £500,not a bad looking wheel for the money.By the time the adaptors were made and tyres fitted etc....it's well over £1100.
