I'd say stick the factory look. I have the 19" 230 style on my coupe. I also like the 220. Here's a link if interested.

I went from 17's to 19's. Style 339's to 199's. 19's don't seem that bad to me. My last BMW had 18's w/ sport susp. perfect setup plus 18" tires are a good deal cheaper to replace when the time comes. I have the eibach/koni yellow setup now and it feels and looks right to me. 17's w/standard BMW susp just felt too squishy. I read somewhere "19's for bling...18's for sting" My sig pic is the 19's w/ non-sport susp. If you look at the "My garage" photos I've posted you can see the 17" 339's.

I thought all coupes had sport suspension, regardless of package. Is that not true for verts?

Anyhoo, I replaced my 17s with 19s and the ride isn't so bad. Feels firmer and more planted to me. Certainly looks the business.

The E92 came standard with the sport suspension. The E93 did not.

Mine was a fleet vehicle according to carfax. Not sure about the e93's (I mean who would order squishy, but fast except for corporate bigwigs who want to impress clients with the power but also want to provide an easy ride for said clients.) but yeah I'm pretty sure coupes were sport pkg standard. I was a tad iffy about buying this one as I really got used to the sport pkg on the '08. My '03 525i was also a straight premium setup BMW, minus the 3.0 turbo of course. This is the first car I've ever really modified to my tastes. Expensive.. but it's my bad a** machine now. This ones a keeper at 20,200 mi.

I paid. Paid again to be rid of it! At least, have the chairs and speed rated wheels/tires.

The Capt'n paid to be rid of a critical part too....those with sense and ready cash, just do....

Uh, we also paid to be rid of the Bridgestone RFT's BMW was so proud of. Strange M3 came with PS2, after all that BS 'bout how ultra RFT's were. They made me watch a video when I bought the car, conditioning to accept. Some just don't take well to being told what we will do and won't do....
