BBS MR Rims vs BBS SE rims

What's the difference? They seem to be the same. Are they both forged?

The diamond black finish is nice, they shine up well, are reasonably light weight, look good. The MR rims look like they are caked in brake dust...all the f-ing time, yucky, yucky, yucky

The BBS's are definitely lighter than the enkies and I would imagine that both the se and regular MR wheels weigh the same.

The SE style reflects more light therefore it cuts through the electromagnetic spectrum faster then the dull MR wheels. They will be able to accelerate faster for sure.
