im new to BMWs and im interested in buying one... i really like those rims (simple but clean) and i was wondering what they're called, what model they come with... because all i see is the "common" ones that come with most of the 02/03 330s but i really love those rims and if i bought a BMW is there a place i could get them?

Those rims are 17 x 8.0 Five Spoke (Styling 119) cast alloy wheels, 225/45R-17. They come with the 325i/Ci Sport Package for MY 2004+ (I believe, are the correct years).

This may be the biggest thread hijacking in history but here's a link to a video of an F-14 fly-by creating similar condensation cones.

No, no dude... there's been MUCH bigger then that...

Love the car... favorite 3 series CVT of all time. Tint look great.

Now would someone please explain how that vapor cone thing happens... anyone have a good explanation? It's very cool. I wish the vid had sound.

This thread should explain it. They are sonic booms.

The vapor cone you see is not caused by sonic booms. It is created by the shape and orientation of the aircraft's surfaces passing through the air, creating extreme low pressure areas that cool the air and condense the water vapor in the air. It's possible to create the cloud without sonic booms and possible to create sonic booms without the cloud.

You can also sometimes see the same condensation form on the top of an airliner's wing during low-speed maneuvers (it's pretty cool to watch from a window seat):
