2-Part Post: Need pshop help, recommendations on wheel

The BMW Style 42 composite cross spike wheel is my all-time favorite wheel. I've been obsessing over these since before I got the car.

1) Can someone please Photoshop these wheel onto my car. You can find several pictures of the car in this folder: http://users.murtari.com/ejack/Twilight/

2) What other wheels are there like this that might save me some money over BMW's inflated prices? 17" is a must, and the bolted pattern is important, as it is what sets this wheel apart from others. Keeping the staggered setup on my car is optional.

The wheel:

BBS RS-GT's are very similar, but I think they are even more $$$

BBS RXII wheels are pretty close, but they're virtually the same price as the Style 42. These appear to be 18" wheels on a stock 325iT (and it's the only good picture I've ever seen of the RXII on an E46).
