Need help with new wheels for X3

Hi everyone, I recently bought a x3 and would like to get some new rims for the summer time.

I looked around online but didn't see a whole lot of x3 rims that interest me. but I found 2 that I would like to see. Can anyone Photoshop these rims on the vehicle and maybe re-size the car pic a little bigger? Thanks in advance..

As long as the topic is X3 wheels, can anyone confirm that 17" OEM X3 wheels will fit my '07 X3 that includes the M Sport package?

Does the M Sport package include larger rotors and different hubs that come fitted to the E83 that does not have the M Sport package, and what is included in the E83 M Sport package. Does it include stiffer springs and/or dampers?

Thank you all for your help!

BTW, I can get by without what people "think" will and won't fit. As I intend to purchase 17-inch wheels and tires, and only need confirmations whether these wheels will fit, or will not fit, thanks.

In my opinion wheels bigger than 19" or 20" look strange on X3 and also it is not comfortable to drive when there is such a thin rubber on them (as we know - suspension on X3 is not soft). I actually like the way 5/7 series wheels look on X3: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...d.php?t=202278
Wheel offsett is wrong, but it only makes it look better than originals - wheels step more out. I will try to find a set for my car - this should not be difficult and also price is not very high.
