No, it's not just you. Those rims absolutely don't suit the E36, and they barely suit the M6. I don't like em at all.

PJ, thanks for the info. Just ordered

I'm actually not sure if it will look good on my car or not, but I'll find out when I get it here....lol. If not NBD, I'll just sell it.

Why? Do what YOU want to, It's your car. If you like it, do it. The people you should be asking is girls.....do you really want to impress a bunch of dudes? (If you ride that bike, there is nothing wrong with that, I'm not here to judge)

DEPO Euro tails or Depo Crystal tails or if you really insist, you could get DEPO LED's, but they really don't work on E36's, IMO.

I don't like the M6 wheels even on the M6, but that's just me. Please stay 17" or under, it fits the car better. That means probably you'll have to go with replicas. I love CSL replica's, and BMW Y-spoke (forgot what style #).

I LOVE the lip spoiler. Have you found one for the E36?
+1, though I'd go for the M wing instead.

most of us are advising you against the lights not only because its not very "euro" or its "ugly" or any aesthetic problems, but more because they are lower quality. Platinum's right, you should do what you think looks good, but i would suggest do a decent amount of research before you buy major parts for your car. With BMW parts, or parts made for BMW's you get what you pay for. I'd hate to see you drop 150 bucks on angel eyes that will die out in a month. If you have the extra cash to get good quality parts-i would do it. But stay true to yourself and how you want your car to look....If all our cars looked the same based on the status quo, we would be giving into auto-socialism instead of this beautiful autonomous commune we enjoy today.
....my God...im becoming more serious post by post....i need help.

I'm advising against because those lights are ass-ugly.

Any further questions?

BTW, Josh, seek help, what the hell is wrong with you?

I understand all the people who are of the opinion that he should do what he wants, since it's his car, but also consider the fact that he asked for opinions. That changes the story.

Asking for opinions means he wants to hear what we think, not "I have no opinion" or "it's your car, do what you want." If that truly is your opinion, that's fine, but really he's asking for input on what he's looking at.

So sure, do what you want to do, but isn't that what he's going to do in the end anyway? Sure, opinions influence that some, but if he didn't want that influence, he wouldn't be asking.
