For the wheels with tires or just the wheels? You could probably get a used set of BBS's from another member on here for less than that. If not VMR has some nice looking wheels, Alzor, Miro, Breyton, OZ's, ASA's, APEX, and the list goes on and on. Check out tirerack.com, they have a wheel configuration thats pretty cool and you can see what the wheels look like on your car.

Because most people aren't as fortunate as you are and have their parents buy them wheels for their BMW that their parents also bought them.

LMAO Noob though I'm sure you didn't intend to be "braggadocios", but the other fellas are just trying to save you from unnecessary ridicule. As said by Indigo most of us here arent fortunate as you may be. there are some vicious folks here at times, they'll rip you a new one cracking on you.

Now back to the wheels: have you thought or know about concaved rims? VMR has some.... Where do you live? Why i ask is because: If its in a busy metropolis with poorly maintained streets like my good ole NYC then i would go past 18". You've got a coupe so staggered is a bit more recommended in my opinion. Are you looking to color coordinate or have a particular color? What color is your ride. i have Tit silver... so in spring when i do my wheel shopping i'm scheming on silver finish or brushed aluminum. I originally wanted to go black to keep up with a black and silver theme.

Hey it's Christmas. Give the kid around of applause for his first Bimmer!
At age 16 he can't possibly have worked to buy his car, there are rules on child labour remember?

M6 replica rims, 18 inch!
