but what you are saying is true SamS. I do remember that M3 OEM factory rims do have the M sticker slot and this one totally doesn't..

can someone else please help verify this with me before i go and try to install these?
I don't think anyone is going to be able to tell you 100%, especially because replica wheels may not correspond to the OEM offsets. You can look on the inside of the wheel, near the hub and I guarantee you they won't have BMW stamped there.

Just take the wheels up to the shop tomorrow to see if they'll clear front/back. Personally, I wouldn't put replicas on my car. Nothing like a cracked wheel to ruin you day (and your car).

And be sure to punch your friend in the stomach for selling you replicas
