New VMR wheels put on today

So at the end of it all I've decided im keeping the car because the market for M3s has dropped quite a bit in the last 6 months and I can't justify selling it now so figured may as well keep it and enjoy the crap out of it so I started by putting on my new wheels. So here they are

Probably could use a spacer in the rear to push it out a little but overall I think they work well.

Looks great. Specs? I didn't know VMR wheels were so cheap. I like that design. Good stuff. Glad to hear you're keeping it too. After doing the sub-frame, I'm sure you can drive it with a little less worry

Yeah they are really reasonably priced for the quality of wheel you get! The fronts are 19x8.5 et35 and rears are 19x10 et25 and I'm running 245/35/19 fronts and 275/30/19 rears but no rubbing and fits really well all around just want the rears to poke out a little more, probably could have got to 10.5 wide wheel but all good still happy with them

I like the colour contrast - don't risk your insurance policy with spacers

Car looks amazing man! The VMR VB3 Wheels in that set up are perfect for the E46 M3. I have seen some guys run some crazy aggressive fitments, but the 19x8.5/19x10 fitment you got is spot on!

So your thinking is that it will somehow increase in value if you wait longer.....
Wheels look great though! What else do you have planned?

Not at all but I don't see it depreciating much more either so why sell it now and take a loss when I can keep it for longer and take roughly the same loss in the future. May as well enjoy it.

Mostly cosmetic stuff planned, tint and a good detail coming up along with a service and changing out the water pump and fluid change. Not going to do anything performance wise now as I rather keep it relatively stock (obviously minus wheels and tint)

The next couple of years will be an expensive time to have an M3.
