the rims that come on the 1M are style 359 so those matte rims should fit. $9000 seems extremely high for the rims. Where are you purchasing them from?

yep that's the same i keep saying to my dealer, but they are a little bit dumb because they dont even know their products, i'll send someone else to buy the wheels , saying i he owns a M3 hehe cause they keep saying those are not for my car. Mexico by the way, hate prices here!!

I vote for just painting them.

Or...Do you have a friend in the states that can order them and them ship them down?

Or take a roadtrip to the states and grab a set.

Very nice

Have ordered white also with performance seats, carbon rear & front spoiler.

Black wheels look great..... What did it cost from dealer?

if you have to buy the wheels (instead of painting), check with Turner motorsport or Tischer bmw. Price is around $2200 for the set. If they ship overseas, even with high shipping costs, it wont be $9k.

Talk to a body shop or powdercoater about painting the wheels. It should run under $150 per wheel to have them painted or powdercoated your choice of fashion colors. Don't believe the hype that either process damages the integrity of the wheel. Do be careful and check the torque on newly painted wheels as they break in and the lug bolts seat on the metal.

Ive only see high gloss powder coat. Is matte possible? Any weight increase?

AlpineM3E92 your car looks b-e-a-u-tiful!!!

any trouble with the paint?, i think i'll do it ...
'cause i'll also buy the performance spoiler and the mirror caps.
you make me realize it's kind of stupid to spend that much in new wheels that look the same only in black

thanks hehe

as Paptethova pointed out... a WIDE array of fashion colors is available in glossy, matte, textured (like anodized) or metallic.... I have had wheels painted silver, also a cool metallic chrome, and had things like valve covers and sway bars or sub frames painted as well at a local powdercoater..

painting is safer for wheels; powdercoating can compromise integrity.
