No, neither the RS or RM are made by BBS today, haven't been for many years now. Both also have almost increased in value due to high demand.

Yes, they did make RS' in 5x120. Search on E-Bay, both American and European listings.

Those are BBS RM. Go on vwvortex.com they have that once in a while.

Yes, they do have BBS RS in 5x120. :) I believe they were stopped in production about 10-15 yrs. ago.
ps: I got the brand new one last year :P. hehe ...

Those lights must be one of the ugliest things you could do to a BMW.

u really think so? I don't think they look that great, they don't follow the straight lines of an E36. They look awesome on E30 though.

I think its because I am a sucker for deep dishes. I think if that Ronal Teddy Bear rim came on a 3 inch lip I would look at it and smile haha :D

the one on the golf is RM and the one on the E36 is RS.

I know they were still produced circa 1995 or so, I still have old Tirerack ads with the RS' listed. :)
