Order placed for F10 M5 reps!

Just placed my order yesterday for my F10 M5 reps. I went for the full package w/ tires and TPMS -- 19's (staggered) in the Gunmetal Machine Faced

I've been working with Alan @ **********s for over a month, going back and forth picking his brain about wheels, ideas etc and he has been nothing but helpful, professional, and GREAT about answering questions. I went with his recommendations on these wheels and cannot wait to put them on!

I really recommend Alan if anyone has ANY questions about wheels/tires/accessories.

Alan will be sending me pics of the wheels as they arrive, and mounted to tires and I will share them here!

These will be going on my F30 335i Msport when it gets here in about 4 weeks--- stay tuned in the forums for updates/pics of both car, and wheels as they get to me!

I asked them for a quote for a set of custom forged wheels. They said they should check and see. No word for a week, I sent another e-mail and then they asked what I was looking for because he forgot and didn't have it saved.

I wouldn't trust them for a second with my money. But lot of other people seem to get better results. Good for them I guess.

I mean it is no big deal, but if they can't even track what a customer wants when he specifies the exact offset etc. on a set of $6k wheels - it makes you reluctant to wire over that amount of money to a business on the other side of the world.

Sorry for the bad experience---If you are intersted in something, definetly hit up Alan (PM me for details, or I can get him in touch with you), I assure you he will be on TOP of things..he was great to work with. He was replying emails to me as late as midnight or later (hes also on top of things when hes at home)

Was a few years ago, but my experience wasn't great either. Suspect they aren't interested much in OS customers. How much discount are they giving you for writing this post?

It was Alan I was talking too. As I said in my previous post. It wasn't THAT big of a deal, but when it comes to sending $6-7k over the atlantic ocean you want it to feel perfect.

I went with another big company instead that replied within minutes and got me a killer deal on some HRE's.

I asked **********s because when you read on most forums a lot of people seem to be satisfied with them (him?). I got a bad experience, but no company in the world has 100% satisfied clients. As long as most are, no need to worry.
