Hi guys

Ever since buying my car, ive been toying up whether to change the wheels

Call it the mod bug, as every car ive had ive always mod'd is straight away

I have yet to come across a wheel i believe really suits the M3, and as such keep going back to the CSL wheels

Is there anywhere in Aus where i could source a cheap set of CSL or the M3 CS (USA ZCP) wheels - same design just different manufacturing process i believe

I dont mind how bad condition they are in (as long as they're still round), as i want to change the colour anyway

any help appreciated

thanks
sam

I would buy them from o/s, you will save so much money.

turner motorsport or tischer bmw would be your best bet for genuine ZCP

I had  CSL that I bought new and sold about 12 months ago. I bought a second set of wheels that I had finished in "black chrome". As I recall the wheels were under $4k from the dealer which is pretty reasonable. I doubt that you could do better importing from OS yourself with recent currency movements.

There is also an aftermarket CSL "copy" available which IMHO just doesn't look quite right. Cheaper again; but I would always wish that I bought the real thing.

in a way it nice knowing the cost of my car increased by $40k....but oh well.
