What wheel is this?

17x8 marked BMW on back. I cannot match it up to any of the pictures on the BMWWheels website.

Thanks, you're right. I must have looked at the list five times and kept missing it. I even had my wife look.

NP. Good looking wheel. Never seen them in E46 offset stateside. Always on facelift E39s.

Got them off Craigslist. Seller said they were Euro but I didn't care. Paid $300 with some 60% Sport Pilots attached.
I like the look as well.

The offset is 47.
Kind of a retro MiniLite look to my eyes.
To be honest I thought $300 for the PSS wasn't a bad deal and I've come to like the wheels as well.

I like that a lot! Very classy. You don't see Style 50s in 17" either; all the E39 ones are 16". And you're right; if the spokes weren't paired up like that, it would have a Minilite look.

If you've never run Pilot Super Sports before they are crazy quiet, not harsh in my setup, and more grip than I care to explore. I'm on a Rob43 cake suspension so you know it works. I was happy to get a square setup back on my car as I got it with staggered type 68s and my snow tire rims are type 98s 17x7.5.

Spanner, the seller said they were only Euro sourced on 3 series. Don't know how he came across them.
