Correct me if I'm wrong, genuine only come in 19" but you can get 18" and 19" replicas?

Not necessarily, if you are patient you can find genuine CSL's at the right money, mine needed a refurb which I was happy to do my self, for under £700 and I know of a forum member who got a set of minters too for a little more.

OEM's do only come in 19" too and they are lighter, but in all honesty I can't tell the difference with everyday driving, my thing was that I didn't want any made from monkey metal so as a result the extra was worth it for me. :driving:

what offsets should we be looking out for? and do the genuine e46 csl's fit without any need for spacers etc and without any rubbing issues? is it just a case of bolt them on, job done?

They fit straight on, ET27 for the rears and ET44 for the fronts although I have a 12mm spacer on the fronts :thumbsup:
