Angel Eyes and Rims for E30

I have a basically stock E30. I was thinking about getting Halo Angel Eye headlights, and i was wondering if it would look good. The car is white, so the lights might make it look funny. I also wanted some new rims to go with it, but I don't know what kind would look good on my car. I saw a picture of an E30 with pretty cool rims, and I wanted to know if anybody could identify the brand and model of the rims.

Also I was looking at the OZ Superleggera's shown below. Any Suggestions?

Make sure that you get a bolt pattern that will line up with your car. If I am not mistaken most E30s have 4 lugs, while the picture of the wheel you posted has 5.

the rims in that pic look like the BMW Style 32's, from 540's i think. They SHOULD fit with hubcentric rings ( i was looking to get of staggered 17x8 and 17x9 for my E30M) but don't quote me since i never actually got them. hope that helps?

those rims look like the ones on my e36 328is, except I think they may be a bit larger than the ones on my car. But the design is the same, and my rims are stock

rims and angel eyes

My opinion the Angel eyes belong on the newer Bimmers, but thats my opinion.
As far as the wheels goto this website:http://www.e30m3therealm3.com/ they have any idea you can dream of.

BBS RGR's look sweet on the E30 M's. IMO, BBS's are the only way to go. Great quality and function, looks, and very durable for their light weight. The CH's/LMs look great as well.

I agree about the whole leave it stock thing but to truely make it your own I believe some mods are OK. Either way you should do what you feel you would like. As far as those rims?? They look just like the BMW wheels on your car. Why pay for something that looks the exact same but with out the BMW logo. Good luck and please post a pic with the ones you decide.

I agree... if you really feel like changing the wheels, please keep the originals. There aren't enough E30 M3's out there, let alone beautiful looking, stock ones, such as yours.
