I actually really love the look of style 73s, and prefer em to the M3 look. Now that I have pretty much figured out that the wheels on the car are aftermarket (I prefer OEM, unless they are really good aftermarket), I am gonna be on the hunt for a good deal on a set.

Was thinking I would get 16"s for winter, but discovered that's not viable, so I will probably put snows on the current wheels this winter and eventually get some style 17s.

Still trying to decide on winter tires, but leaning towards Michelin X-Ice Xi2, but I need to do something soon. Its already snowed on the pass that I have to travel over to get to Seattle (450" of snow a year!).

Found a clone of my car for sale. Near as I can tell its identical, except for the wheels (and it has more than double the mileage of mine ):

Picking the car up tomorrow. Very stoked.
