None taken. I have no idea what you are envisioning here? A picture perhaps might help?
The beauty of it is that I like them.

Only thing I would recommend on your car is maybe a little drop for them to fit better.Or going with front m3 wheels in the rear as well so the offset is fine.

If I want to drop the xi I probably will have to get coilovers, those are pricey... , might be a nice X-mas project... in snowy Alberta...

FWIW I had M3 rims on my car for about 3 weeks and dumped them because the ZHP is a lot lower than a stock 3 series and the wheels would rub like a MOFO! The M3's have an odd offset compared to the rest of the E46 bodies because of their flared fenders which is why this problem exists. I would get another set of fronts or sell them.

File upload did not seem to be working, so here is a link to my car in the "welcome" forum. You can see one of the wheels. Interestingly, I haven't seen another car with those wheels yet, although I could have missed it. Wondering why, as they seem to be "standard" BMW wheels (I bought the car CPO).
