The issue I have is with the people who are like "OMG, I wish someone would make new *insert wheel of choice*!" and then in the same breathe disparage the idea of replicas when they see it in practice.
I'm inclined to believe those individuals are just following the crowd around them, and further feed into some of these astronomical values we see for parts for these cars; not just wheels, but ANYTHING with a tuner's name on it.
You could probably sell the manufacturing/quality control labels from said items to people on here. I honestly would not be surprised if someone bought it.
Again, these are nice wheels, and look great on a multitude of cars (especially the W201). I personally just don't see the reason for the constant hype and ridiculous prices.
