E93 17" wheel upgrade question

My '08 E93 wheels are getting ratty looking. I purchased it CPO last year and the wheels were not well taken care of by the original owner.
The wheel number is 157 and a local wheel restorer charges $137 per wheel (not powder coated). As an alternative, I like the style 338 17" wheels on the '13 E93 models. If I could buy them as take-offs for $150 each, it would improve the looks and I will enjoy new wheels.
If someone buys a new E93 and then changes their mind after it is delivered and requests a wheel upgrade, does the BMW dealer sell the original wheels as new parts or do they sell them to wheel wholesalers? I found a few 338 wheels on Ebay but they are not new take-offs. Are there any other sources of new take-off wheels?

Check out originalwheels.com

From my research they receive wheels from dealers who are doing swap outs. Until I purchased the donut spare I was fully planning on buying an additional full 157 rim from them.
