Such a Shame on so Many Levels – aka Why Perception is NOT Reality

26 Jun

At least the genuine BBS center cap survived. Note, the wheel is NOT a genuine BBS product

      the original thread is on one of the E46 BMW forums and it is a replica

      you can also tell easily from how it cracked – one a 1 piece wheel would appear in that fashion.

    Funny how your assumption made you think you know it’s a replica, but other than that you’re really clueless. I’m sure that I can show you a pic of an authentic BBS with a similar damage and you will call it a replica because “it broke”.

    BTW, one way to tell is the valve stem location. Now you know so you wouldn’t look so dumb.

      If you read the original thread on the BMW forums you would see that by the owners admission it’s not a genuine BBS wheel

    I don’t know to whom Macky’s comment is directed to. I just asked because I’ve seen my share amount of LM’s before, and never seen a replica.
    Either way, karma is a bitch, and I am not surprised this happened. Now the owner has to fork out more money to buy something a little stronger (read, legit).
    Thanks for the info Z1.
