    The one's on ebay may be ok depending on where ther made, If made in italy they will more than likely be good quality, if made in china dont bother.
    Thats what i've been told by a bloke who sells real good bbs reps, i'm gonna be getting some LM's from him in a few weeks.

    He sells all replica wheels, went over to there showroom last week and they sell good stuff, check them out............

    I know what you saying Nathan but massive difference on price, I do get tempted by reps but deep down I guess I'm just a badge snob so I guess I will just have to be patient

    I know a guy who has had CSL reps on his E46 M3 for a couple of years and reckons they are spot on.

    I would certainly consider reps if they are they are sufficiently cheaper than originals.

    In fact are CH/CKs reps available? anyopne have experience with them?

    cheers

    Italian reps are the best. But buy genuines made from Germany, they're even better

    No dont buy the reps off ebay, the quailty is sh*t. Friend bought some for his golf they were 750. Within a few days the red lip faded, centre cap fell off and wont fit the hub correctly. And there quite weak.
    I told him to get genuine VZ off Phill. As there the same price and genuine! I'm not sure on other BBS reps but the ones on ebay stay clear of them mate.

    Ditto Italian reps, had some of these in RS4 format in the past with zero issues, I guess you just need to shop around and buy off a reputable company who will take them back if you have any issues. There is a big price difference though so it is tempting, I love BBS but for 19" with premium tyres we are talking 2,000 and LM's forget it more like 3.5.

    Reps approx 1,050 all in , food for thought...

    Just speak to the sellers, unfortunately these replicas, be they chinese or italian both say "Made in Germany" on them

    To be honest its better to call these wheels "fake" rather than replica because no other replicas copy the originals exactly. The BBS fakes have BBS, the sizing and all the logos cast into them. To the untrained eye they look more than genuine!

    An example or reps being sold as the real deal.
    .
    A quick check of the sellers feedback suggest he caught one already.

    I expected Phil to suggest that with another child on the way I will need genuine BBS to offset the weight gain in the car

    If you are in the market for a set of genuine BBS - PW Motorsport is the number one choice IMO, top service which is key when spending your hard earned.

    I've been quoted just over 1k for LM reps, 18x8.5 with 225/35/18 falkon tyres, Went and saw the bloke last week and the wheels are beautiful and he seems ok too, I'll be asking for some sort of garentee as thats quite alot of money for me to pay out in one hit

    Genuine BBS's would be mega money and as there the one's i want, thats my only option

    It is quite expensive when you can get Falken 452 from camskill for approx 60 per corner, your wheels are in effect costing you 760 that is a lot for a rep, 100 per corner is more like it for the LM's.

    Agree with Nate. If you dont have the money for CK or CH get VZ from Phil there at a real good price....I really want a set but need the cambelt changed first!. And at least you know if you have any problems he will sort it out. Few people on the forum bought stuff of Phill at PW Motorsport and had nothing but good things to say.

    I'd stay away from ebay wannabes. I'll try get some photos of my friends alloys 3 months later to show you the state there in. There might be good some reps/fakes/wannabe BBS alloys out there, but the ones on ebay are really poor quailty and a waste of money. Friend tried sending them back but the customer service was sh*t and seemed like they didnt care.

    wow thats expensive,i got a set of lm reps exactly the same size for 490 w/o tyres,i fitted them to my girlfriends 4 motion she had,they looked great for a few months,then the laquer starts lifting and they start to look crap.

    I would not buy reps again,i only did it because it was her run about.

    For sale ....dolphin grey tdi 2006 front and back bumpers with grill,fogs etc,mirrors,sportback standard rear lights and mudflaps.
