Stance help

Hey guy so I want to buy some rims and coilovers for my 330i,
But I'm not sure where to start. I want an aggressive look, is that possible with my car? Something like these pics.(this is not my car I found it on google)
I don't track this car is a daily driver. Also coilovers, is there a certain brand for this look? I'm new to all of this so friendly help is needed. Thanks guys!

First off, don't use the word stance unless you want to be ridiculed. That's about all the friendly advice I'm gonna give you.

1. Buy Raceland coilovers for next to nothing
2. By BBS LM rep wheels for cheapest price possible. Make sure to get the polished lip and black spokes and 10" width and a random offset (because who has time to learn about offsets, so complicated bro)
3. get the cheapest camber plates you can find
4. get your tire guy to somehow fit 215mm wide tires on your 10" wheels.
5. put it all on your car.
6. enjoy your now horrible ride and handling plus ripping the bottom of your car out over miniscule sized bumps in the road.

You basically want to tear the BMW heart and soul out of your E46 and replace it with garbage. Those stance cars look broken.

If you buy tires/wheels that fit you won't have to ruin your car with camber.

If you maintain an E46 like a Honda, you're gonna have a bad time.

The tires look too narrow for the rims.
The offset too deep front and back.
The negative camber is much too negative. No reason to ruin tires

This is BMW.......not Hot Wheels


This is more like it

I know you can fit a 18x10 and run a 205x40 tire for a nice stretch to avoid rubbing if you are on coilovers if not I don't see why you would rub
