Here are a couple of iPhone shots with this Sochi on my IS. My friend has the cv3s on his c300.

I get a lot of compliments and i've had them on since the week they released them.

Man they look almost identical. I say the Vossens though. Cleaner with out those little holes where the lugs go.

I think that is right. My TSW Nurburgring 18x8 is under 19 pounds http://www.tsw.com/alloy_wheels_nurburgring.php vs the stock wheel 28 pounds. However, it doesn't have much concavity. Anyways, the lightweight is one major factor I choose the TSW one over something like MRR GF07 (25 pounds or so) which looks better but heavier.

I think that depends on the offset you choose. However, TSW have a broad range of size and offset and made to fit the vehicles well. I know I don't need spacer with the Nurburgring one as it fits both my car. I think TSW Sochi one has set that will clear the brakes without spacer as well. Just talk to the vender who sell them.

I called TSW and they looked at the specs. They WILL clear the brakes on the IS350 wheels.
