Hint, 19inch wheels are heavy and will make your car slower. Instead you should look into buying lighter weight racing wheels. What color is your interior? If grey then hyper white is the way to go. Black might look good as well. But anything else needs the more warm halogens. What do you mean by 1 piece headlights?

Welcome!

Welcome!
But 19" wheels look sexy One piece headlights, probably the ebay ones?

Welcome OP! I'm in Nor Cal also but i'm still like 2 hours away from you. CA is huge

PS. I just saw that those are mods you want to do. If they are Ebay headlights I suggest that you wait and save up for better two piece headlights that the sponsors sell on this forum. Or even better yet you can mod your stock lights to have projectors which looks pretty easy to do and looks sexy in the end.

I'm aware of the weight factor on the larger wheels, hints why I'm buying performance wheels not just knock off look alikes. But yea, 19' are a must.. Anything smaller with spoked or mesh looks too small..
As for the headlights, I was referring o the eBay ones only bcuz I like the color separation on the corner lights where it looks clear but black haze that separates the corners from the headlight.. Il probobly just find corners like that and just DIY black out the headlights and yellow the high beams and fog light reflectors.
( I like the yellow look when the lights are off) don't care so much for the angel eyes, they've been over done by every bimmer enthusiast out there.
Thanks for your opinion and advice though. I do appreciate all the feedback.. Il post pics as I go, ( a video iis in the making as well...)

I think the 18 look nicer on non M3 cars. 19's with low profile tires always on lookout for potholes, manholes, cracks and bumps.

Oh I feel you ... 18s are easier, and ive had experience with both 18s and 19s..and due to my location probobly the smarter choice, but I'm inking of going 18 front and 19 rears? I've never done that before.. Wondering how it would perform..? I think il start a thread on that topic to get some input

I wasn't the one saying not to get 19's haha. I'd get 19's if I wasn't trying to be as low as possible with some poke Can't wait to see the progress

Hahaa, that's my dilemma.. Where I live I can't go too low bcuz the terrain.. But I want the wheels tucked and flush with a bit of ground clearance( to run over dead animals and debris) even the street I live on is a dirt road with gravel... So yea not an ideal location for a modded bimmer.. But yea follow my threads and il be posting all my progress ...
