    go for the LM's and sell the black ones to me...

    Both suit the car well so You can't go wrong.
    I like the black ones more
    I had the LM's before and they nice,but they come with that dodgy polished lip , which is hard to maintain.

    I love my 3sdm's and certainly wouldn't change to BBS's. I know there are a lot of 3sdm's out there, but the BBS design is getting a little bit old now. Sorry for upsetting anyone with BBS's.

    Definitely stick with what you have already. LMs are gorgeous but your car looks awesome as it is man.

    Emmm... i'm biased coz i own "genuine Lm's"... yes @ £4000 before rubber, how can you compare to 3SDM's and nevermind the so called LM's which I agree look poop coz they copies....

    Yes I agree that the LM's do look nice, but they've been done over and over again. And having had both sets of wheels there is no difference in quality. So why do BBS charge extortionate prices. And I like the beautiful concavity of the 3sdm range. They just look fresher. But I suppose it's whatever suits your tastes really.

    Funnily enough I have had the very same decision to make. I have BBS CH audi option wheels on mine. I was trying to decide between the LM and the 3SDM.

    I'm going to go for the 3SDM. What size are your 3SDMs?

    Thanks gas-man. Do you get any rubbing on the arches with those wheels. I would want to go for wider rears too.

    Tried to buy a set today but out of stock everywhere. Left a deposit with one place so they'll contact me when the wheels come in. Don't want silver, got to be matt black.

    Wish I'd waited before ordering tyres and Eibachs - lol.
