Rims

Hey all, names Daniel. I have a BMW 323i 99' That I've been working on. So far I've gotten tint, sound system, projector halo lights, rear lights.

Now I want to look into some rims but not sure what. Chrome with black seems Ok,

Here's my car currently (BEFORE TINT)

Opinions on what would look nice,

those headlights dont look stock to me, and the turn signals look like they came out of a 2000-something 5 Series, its a nice color though

what sort of rims are you looking for, 5 spoke, 6 spoke?

Yah those headlights aren't my cup of tea. But VMR is a brand and VB3 is the style, they are CSL replicas but have a little more aggressive stance, I have them on my car, go look at some pics, I picked up a set of 19s with tires brand new for about $2000.00

Vb3s look good. So do lm reps. I'm a fan of m6 reps, though those aren't everyone's cup of tea.

To me M6 rims on a E46 M look a little too big let alone a non M with less fender flare.

Gross, Take those E-Bay headlights and markers and throw them in the trash. Unless they are BMW rims, Chrome wheels looks stupid on an E46
