Your wheels aren't bad.

Looks like a nice vert. Can't see wheel rash or gaps in the leather. Not my favorite color but a 325i e36 is a fun car.

I have never been sure about "inverted polish" wheels, wheels that don't have the rim polished but the spokes and the rim is black.

I found that the original subwoofer works well with the rest of the speakers being BSW. My e46 sounded great that way.

Turbo engine. The e46 is not only naturally aspirated but has individual throttle bodies. The response wouldn't be remotely close. At least the e90 doesn't have direct injection...

Nice work. That's a great car.

You have any details? That isn't Dakar yellow, is it? Wheels?

I think the only thing maybe not quite perfect is the wheel bolts.

I wouldn't do it. There is a serious risk that it just looks like you never cleaned brake dust.

And it ruins resell value of the BBS wheels.
