    I'm guessing they are genuine, genuine BBS CH's are usually 8.5" wide with offset of ET30, I think reps are 8" or 9" wide only, though I could be wrong.

    im not sure how true this is but im pretty sure they r fake as the real ones have holes inbetween each wheel bolt, only from what i saw when on wheels whores a while back

    I don't think the above is true... i think some fitments do have little holes between the bolt holes to enable them to be balanced
    on a wheel balancer... but not all genuine BBS fitments need them.

    Your probably wright, I only had a quick look when I had my mk4 golf, and thinking about it m3 csl's don't have the holes and they have them standard don't they?
