Agreed, they definitely look better than reps. Personally I'm thinking 2 piece with a painted center

That picture is photoshopped. The car belongs to Obioban on E46Fanatics and M3f. In the original picture he had 19" BBS RG-Rs with a diamond plate finish.

That would be even better looking, I love the diamond black finish. Not too crazy but just enough color where you can still see detail

Hahaha, I even made sure to say it's not my car. I have the stock style 135 double spokes (for now). Thinking of getting some OZ Ultraleggera's as track wheels:

18x8 = 18.6lbs
18x9 = 19.2lbs

versus my stock wheels:

18x8 = 24.7lbs
18x8.5 = 26.2lbs

His car looks perfect. I definitely need to keep the diamond black finish in my list of possible choices when I decide to change my wheels out

i think his car looks pretty nice. sometimes i wish i had an m3. not because of the performance or anything because its not like i'd drive fast even if i had a fast car. i prefer to cruise around.

But the reason i'd love to have an m3 is because of how big their fenders are I always see 12" wheels on them. I know i could fit 11's in my regular 3 series fenders.... porsche hollow spoke twists 18x11 et45 with a 16mm adapter, so final specs would be 18x11 et29 and it would clear the trailing arms, inner wheel wells, and what not. with those specs it would sit just like my 9.5's do

so i think someone should go for a 13" wheel on an m3. that'd be nuts

Lights/Speakers/Rims

Nice WHIPS on this page. Have a couple of questions about getting some sounds in my whip, head unit, speakers, and amp. Not looking to blow my roof of but something that will sound better than the factory system. Also looking for a spot where I can get some halo/projector lights aswell, seen some on ebay but don't really know about those. Last thinking about dropping some 18" blk rims. Any suggestions are welcome and thanks in advance......

Just picked up my 2005 330i with the ZHP package. This thing rides like a dream compared to the pickup truck I'm used to. Can't wait to start modding!
