We like this wheel a lot. We've had several chances to review the wheel and are very pleased with it. We are about to purchase a large amount of wheels. Here's why:

TUV Approved.
Germany Manchinery makes them.
Full SAE Certified
Light - 24lbs for 19s
Indentation for the "///M" insignia

So the question is:
Polished or painted?

Staggered or Equal Sizes

19x8 and/or 19x9

Pricing expected for non-staggered:
~$1200 shipped
Pricing expected for staggered:
~$1300 shipped

We may do a group buy if we can get 20+ buyers at a significant discount.

Staggered is aways nice, so i would definitely make a staggered set optional. My question would be are they hub centric (i assume they are) and are they going to have the correct offsets so that spacers are not needed. They look good, however the offset seems to look off for the fronts.....just looks like the fronts are out too much and it would rub if you went over a speed bump but maybe its just the angle. other than that they lok sweet!! :thumbup:

so far, offsets are correct within 1-2mm

Looks good for starters. Nice to see a pic of them on an e39.

Is the big pic polished or painted? Is it simple to get the M badges for the indents? I suppose, prb just like getting the center caps, just need a part # (?).

Who is the manufacturer?

Any idea of a link to a pic of an e39 sporting 18" style 124's? (That's the OE 545 sport wheel.)

Thanks,

Gary

Those are awsome...I don't think they will fit my car though.
