Also I could care less about the performance. I am cruising the strip, not street racing for slips. As long as it draws attention to me and demonstrates my lack of financial responsibility and artistry, they should suit me just fine.

But it's not an expensive car. Yeah it's a bmw and the name is good. But it's not the equivalent of putting these on a new 7 series. If I saw you cruising with these on a new 7 series I would wonder who you were. I still wouldn't like it but I'd wonder.
If I saw them on a e46 I'd think you bought one at a time and kept them in your apartment until you could afford to mount them.
No insults. Just being honest.
