Yes, they will fit, but they will look silly on your E36.
but their so cheap ¬¬ £20-00
^^ Isn't that like $9,432 american monies?
no its $31.50

^close... add like 20 dollars and your left arm

Edit.. you beat me
I need some new wheels, the standard ones are so damaged cos i cant parallel park.
:rofl: at least you're honest :).... the wheels won't look too bad.. for 20 pounds or w/e currency you folks use, I'd def get them
WHICH style of E90 wheels? They have a whole bunch of them that are considered E90 wheels. You can't just say "they'll look silly" without knowing what wheels he's talking about.
these ones come to mind



but youre right
I guess it's all matter of opinion. While some E90 wheels will look better than others when fitted to an E36, it's still my view that all of them will look silly. Can't mix & match design languages, IMO.

But its ok to run e39 style 5's on e36's? :angel:

:p

Except that Style 5s and E36s are of a similar vintage/time period, and thus have a design language that is cohesive. The Style 5 is a pretty universal BBS mesh wheel (albeit nice looking), and one could also easily make the argument that BMW has been putting BBS mesh wheels on their cars for decades.
Haha yeahh. I just think you can make lots of wheels look good on e36's.

just depends on how you execute it.. the e90 wheels flow pretty well on this e36, I think

Was waiting for you to chime in los :)
Did you ever sell those, Carlos? I know you have them on CL down here for a while.
Yeah Chad Jr. actually has possesion now. He had some plans for them but I don't know where he's at with them. He let me know recently that one was bent :(.


Are they still listed down there? I've been out of FL since May of last year :rofl:. I don't know if posts expire.
Nah, the post expired a long time ago.

The bend couldn't be too bad. You drove the crap out of it with those wheels 'n tires.
