Best option for BBS LM's reps?

So, i know real BBS LM's won't fit our car, so my only option are BBS LM reps sadly...I've been looking around and I see M*dBarg*ns has the MM6, Bavarian with the EuroTeks and ESM rims.

I currently have Volk's on my car right now, but i want to go with something more aggressive yet original. I've been eyeing the BBS LM style, yet, the only thing holding me back is being replica's as the only option. Now my question is, is there really a difference out of the 3? Looks, weight, structural material? Your input is greatly appreciated.

Many board members are running authentic bbs lm/rs in aggressive offset. It is an option.

Real BBS will fit. Just have to find the right offset. Most that fit come from the JDM market and are JDM BBS. For instance mine came from Japan, but needed to be redrilled to fit the 5x120.

Another option is to find a used set of rs/lm that need refinishing and send them off to rotiform. For $1700 they will re drill, build to any spec and paint any color. It's a great deal as you can easily find rs's for $700 used. $2500 with shipping for a fresh custom set.
