What would i have to do to my 320i to fit those bad boys on the rear ?
Multiple appearances in SEMA? Don't get me wrong, that's a nicely done up M but it's not THAT crazy.

And if you're not pushing 25 inch rims or bigger, you're a ***

Right now I am stock sport staggered with 17's.

Personally, I love those rims on that car, and wouldn't change them. That's just me.

Under 10? Or under 10k? Either way, not "brand new." I'll be curious to hear what price you seatle on.

I'd go with 25s, and some Lambo doors, myself. Chicks'll dig it, and that's what matters.

Funny enough, i just picked up a set of those exact rims for my car. Gonna leave snows mounted on the 16's, and run these 17's in the summer. Perfect size and look for our cars IMO. Could go 18's, but after 9 years on a +2 setup, i'm definatly liking the more comfortable setup.

Also, my cars the exact same color. Nice to see what my car will look like in the summer. Looks like i made a good choice

Well, I think I'm gonna keep my stock rims for awhile. I have a client that owns a powder coating shop and he offered to clean up the rash (very minor) and powder coat them. I'm not sure what color, but will probably have him do it pretty close to what they are now. Lot's of feedback to go black, but I just can't see it.
