Cool Recommend me some rims

Hey guys I am new here and was thinking about buying a 540i and was wondering what a good pair of rims are. The reason I am asking is because I do not really like the rims on the base model 540i. Also is there anywhere that sells the Sport Package rims because I love the look of those.

Of course, most people will tell you the rims they have on their car are most likely the best and the set you need. That said, you might want to take a look at this thread and see what fits your taste the most.

Also would you guys say a 540i is too much power for a 17 year old. I have a 98 e320 do you guys think i will notice a difference in power?

2001-2003 if you can afford one in that range. Otherwise, the best maintained one you can find.

No. Just take some driving classes to learn how to control the power and drive with it safely.

Yes, the E320 is more closely compared to the 530i.
