If anyone has a pic saved of an 04 325ci sport suspension with CSL rims... I'd love to see a picture.
look for my car in the thread...it's a 323Ci with Sport suspension and the very first set of 18" staggered in the USA

Thanks,
However I don't think I'm going to pick them up off a member on here. Seems kinda weird/shady, but maybe he's going to basic training. Says he's leaving this weekend and won't be back until december so he can't run them to a shop 20-30 minutes down the road to have someone else ship them out. Oh well. My search continues.

BUMP!

Just wondering for an 04 325ci what would be my best fitment for me in an 18''? Probably looking to pick somethign up come spring time. I like the concave look, but don't know how much I can get away with. I don't want to do fender rolling, and I'm on sport suspension for now, but will probably switch to a coilover setup when I purchase the wheels. Input please! Thanks.

The fitment your going to run on your car for proper fitment and no fender rolling or rubbing would be something like what the VMR VB3 comes in. The 18x8.5 et.40 and 18x9.5 et.45. This will be a nice clean fitment!

Sorry for the dirty car and iphone pics.
