Don’t you mean BMW fps wheels?
I think Cromodora and Fratelli Pedrini Sarezzo are actually competitors.

The wheels Alvaro shows are my favorite E9 wheels. Even though they are the base E9 wheels I don't think they have been improved on (from a "look" standpoint) no matter how hard owners have tried.

@alprada70

How did you get the alternator looking so fresh? I've just disassembled mine, and I struggle to see how to get the alu parts to look nice again.
Ideally I'd like to bead blast and /or tumble them with stainless steel pellets.

However the aluminium backside housing part with the electronics has the wires connected to the starter, which I think does not react well to being blasted. Did you just polish it with steel or bronze wool?

@eriknetherlands thank you,
II think I did a better job on the E9 alternator ... I disassembled and sent the aluminum to "vapor blasting", I don't know the process ... I painted the stator, and electroplated the other parts (pulley, bolts, nuts, etc.). ..
