It's going to take a lot of modification to get those to fit. Even then, I don't think it's possible without somehow extending the fenders. Adding spacers will only make it worse. Spacers lower the...

It depends on the person though. Some like their ride very sporty so it's in no way harsh while to others that same ride is too rough. Generally speaking sport springs are fine if you're just looking...

Well usually XI cars sit higher because it helps out with the clearance. If you lower it an inch or so it should be fine but if you slam it then it's going to greatly affect the clearance. If you get...

It depends on where you live. IMO lowering it about an inch or so is fine. Anything lower than that and it's going to affect the snow clearance (obviously) which could be needed in some situations.

Adding spacers will not work. Spacers basically push the wheels out more thus lowering the overall offset. Thus, if you have a 45 offset and need it to be 25 in order for it to fit, then you could...

As mentioned, 19's with the correct offsets and tires generally work just fine. However, if the offset is too aggressive (or too conservative) and/or the tires are too wide they will not fit.

You can't go wrong with either one but with the M6, you will have to mod your car a certain way to bring out the aggressive look. If you want a more conservative/OEM look then go with the CSL.

Hmmm...I think it would look better if you just do away with the polish lip. So basically just do matte black wheels with red rings.

Usually the sizes are 19's, 20's, and then 22's but some manufacturers do have 21's (HRE for example). But honestly, I would just stick to 20's. Anything above that and it will look too big on the...

I think 18's will look just fine on an E46- no need for a drop. Now if you go to 19's then a drop will make the car look better.

You could install LED angel eyes in the P46's but it's a very tedious job. You will also have to be careful as to not break/damage the headlights.
