Well, I think the new ones look nice and will look nice on your car.

CSL stile wheels are hard to pull off on Z4 without lowering it and Msport package.

Nice wheels, I think they will suit the car, maybe someone could do a photoshop for you before you decide.

I agree (with VailM3), I do not even like the CSL style wheels on the E9x M3. Especially with your color and body-style I would go with something more elegant / modern / expensive looking. Such as a replica of the 6-series multi-spoke wheels in the right size (if available).

Both are nice. The turbine wheels will be very difficult to keep clean. I have 293 wheels and keep the spoke and inside hubs clean is a monumental task. I find myself clean them after every drive to keep up with the dust.

I do not like wheels with lips on almost any "luxury brand" cars, but I cant explain why... I would choose "m-style" concave over "aplina-style" concave over straight over wheels with lips for a Z4...

But I also think that the normal antenna looks better than any stubby antennas I have seen, so I know my opinion does not always represent the greater majority.

OE 296s still look best to me. Esp on Orion Silver.

Agree with you.
I have the VMR710 18" and the gap between the tire and the fender look too big.
I like to lower the suspension to reduce the gap, but I don't think I will spend the $$$ to do that.

It is only $270 for the H&R Springs, =] not too bad for the appearance enhancement

If you want to go all out. Look at HRE custom forged.

There is a new design for the 296 that appears to be thicker and stronger.

See here. http://e89.zpost.com/forums/showpost...49&postcount=6

I just went through this and opted for the updated 296s.
