Not an e39, but its on a BMW M3. Its on my buddies M3, being test fitted for SEMA this year. Hope this helps.
Looks pretty dang good. I am waiting on a set for my 528iT when they get in this December. I think they are going for $300 a wheel.... This will look sick man.
Here are some pics I took. They are 19x8.5 and 19x9.5




Here is where I want to put them on.

Really, didn't notice that. Looks like they both have 10 spoke split. I had to do a double take/count.

Huh? While the ones on the E46 may be replicas, it has the same number of spokes as LM's.

Hey Raff,
Who makes these reps? I was looking at getting the EXM3's from Exclusive.
But I'd be interested in checking out these before I take the plunge.
thx

Here are a few that I dug up before my purchase.











I would have killed for that White E39 M5 when I was looking for a new car last Feb. Beautiful !

I ended up selling out for the E60. Fortunately, LM's tend to look good on everything.

There are a ton of companies that make reps of those wheels. Depending on size they are pretty reasonable on price as well.

Hi,

Amazing EIGHT year thread bump!

Genuine BBS LM's are a lovely wheel. Fake/Counterfeits are everywhere and nowhere near as good...

Cheers, Dennis!

Alzor makes the reps and you can get them at ECS for around 600-900 for a full set of four depending on the size and offset.
