As I was looking at a new GLI I noticed that there BBS rims are dull not polished like the ones on a 337. Anyone else seen this? Or any GLI guys out there hae polished BBS wheels? It is someting nice to know for future in case you dent a rim like a post i saw earlier...

duh
the new GLI rims are painted, and also the rims on the 337 are not polished, they have a shot pinned finish. They did this to avoid having the same problems and complaints they were having with the shot pinned finished rims (i.e the 337 rc's)

You know, i dont sit there and stare at rims, maybe you do
. BTW most of the time im deployed during the year, so reading material that comes and goes I dont get to see. Yesterday was the first time I actually looked at the rims up close, only because I thought they were the same. Thanks for the info, you are the one that is
wannabe...next time get a 337 instead of getting the knock off.

I not so sure they did it to avoid the "pitting " problem (which seems to have skipped my car) but more to save money as the GLI RCs (drivers gear) cost less than the 337 RCs.
