Talking Need your opinions!

Hello there fellow gentlemans and ladyfriends where ever you all may be!

I need some help here, I recenetly bought myself my first bmw and am looking for suggestions for a suspension setup (preferably one piece coilover set with camber adjustments) that wont break the bank. With that being said I am not trying to be cheap either, just do not want to spend 3K on a set of coilovers. My other question is wheel set up, not going to lie, I am not familiar with BMW wheels nor their specs and shenanigans. Ive had a few ideas for what type like Enkei, BBS or even Rotas. Ended up seeing some nice M3's sitting on some lovely Rota wheels, but none the less I would love some opinions. I do not want any crazy deep dish wheels with stretched tires, I just want something that lines up with the fenders for a nice fitment or at least comes close. Im being vague here just because I would like to learn some new things from you guys to see different styles and opinions on what is or isnt well made or built.

I will post some pictures of my lovely car I own as soon as i can in this thread so we know what were working with! (PS my car is a Silver 2002 325CI with the lovely Grey interior)

My Ride: so turbo wow
I would recommend the Eibach Spring + FSD set. Great handling, great comfort, great price.
