Hi all i am about to buy an e36 m3 and am a little confused about a few things!!!
what are the "proper" m3 alloys? many i have seen for sale have the motorsport "5" spokes on them but some seem to have a similar style with about 10 spokes? are these m3 wheels? why the differenc? also any tips on buying an e36 m3 would be much appreciated!! evo or not to evo etc!!!
thanks a lot....
