I saw the pictures you posted in your other thread and I'm 90% sure its original not a replica, the guy that told you it's a replica is wrong. Take a picture of all the marking on the back. Either way glws.

I have a pair of replica front wheels WITH the small rectangular indent for the "M" emblem. Thought I was purchasing OEM wheels, but was disappointed when I unboxed them :Thumbdown:

Was seeking one front wheel to complete a staggered OEM set. A pair of fronts appeared on e-bay. Seller was reputable, and provided several pictures requested by me. I was fooled, and the seller felt bad as well.

I provided the seller pictures of the OEM front and rear wheels I already possessed and the wheels he sold me, showing the differences. He was kind enough to remit a partial refund, allowing a fair price for reps, not OEMs.

Yes replicas do have the indentation for them m emblem. I usually can tell by the paint which is hard to replicate IMO and the marking on the back. The "font" or missing info jumps up at me.
