spotted: *wanna-be* BMW M6 - (pics)

Chillin' at Yorkville last night and noticed some tool parked his Aston V8 Vantage. Nice ride, but if he wanted an M6 so badly, why didn't he just buy one? Who the hell puts M6 replica-style wheels on a $160k car?? I wonder if Aston actually copied BMW's style and are offering these as an option.

Those are the stock wheels, and they look nothing like M6 Wheels.


So OP, is the owner still a tool?

Their not identical, I guess I'm rocking CSL reps then. M6 Wheels have a distinct look. In the pics of those Miro Replica wheels you posted, they look kind of simlar. But in person OEM M6 wheels look like no other. But yea I guess Im an Idiot because of your ignorance.

True, that doeset change the point. The rims look similar, same style but they aren't identical. Maybe its because I'm a designer and pay more attention to details but I can probability find 15 differences in between the two wheels.

Its still you.

You don't give a shit about the wheels, you're just on my nuts. Quoting me and disagreeing with something I say in every thread. That's what makes you ignorant.


I just think the OP shouldn't be so quick to call some random person a tool.

Them are the new factory AM wheels. Yes, they look like M6 rims.

AM is still way more beautiful than BMW though. Just too bad that I don't fit that well in them

YEAH! my brotha! lol

To get really technical (and gay/immature/i know it all)...the difference is in the size of the split in the spoke, and the way it splits the spoke, and the curvature of each spoke. Considering the finish of OEM vs OEM is kind of similar, and they also have 5 spokes each...apart from the emblem to me they look pretty close.
