F30 OEM Wheels on E46's

Sup squad -

So awhile ago I was curious how a set of f30 luxury line wheels (style 416) would look on my e46, and I couldn't find any photos of others who have done it. So I picked up a pair of wheels (A literal pair of two) for $150 just to test fit and see how they might look on my E46 so I figured I'd be the first!

Tyre Spec's are 245/45/18 ET35 18x8.5

Surprisingly very little rubbing considering I'm lowered. Granted I only drove around the block!

My question - Is anyone else running F30/F32 OEM wheels? I'm feeling like the M3/M4 style wheels (as beautiful as they are) are getting dull.

Show me your E46 on F30/F32/F10 wheels!

They kinda look like Alpina wheels, so maybe it's ok? Your car, your choice.

Not that I support DT, but that hood sticker will get you keyed. That would be a shame on that nice paint job.

Haha noted. Thankfully I'm not from the States so I think we're safe

I was only able to import a front clip. E46 Alpina's are just now becoming legal in Canada. Wasn't really going for the Alpina style (though a genuine set would be bomb!) just was curious how F30 OEM fitment would look on the E46 (:

Surprising they don't! It's an incredibly tight fit though.
