This E46 looks brand new, I honestly am very impressed with how simplistic it is!

The paint has great depth and the small hints of silver here and there really pop with the wheels.

I would be proud to own this car.

At a quick glance I thought it was a e90. It looks like a newer car.

Beautiful wheels and car! I'd get the corners with the black surrounds but that's just nit picking.

Nope, factory quarter panels, no rolling needed. See the full specs of wheels and tires and install info here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=1025751

No additional camber.
No spacers.
Didn't roll fenders.
Factory sport suspension.

I do not experience any rubbing at all.

Looks real nice! Glad to someone else who didn't go blacking everything out

You should think about lowering it a bit, even sports springs would do.

These are factory sports springs and I don't want it any lower which would roughen the ride. I was thinking about it but really I'm happy with the ride quality as it is and wouldn't want to degrade any. Also I'm happy that as it is I don't scrape my bumper when going up shallow inclines. And I don't have to take inclines or speed bumps at a diagonal.

I just put 18" Style 67 M3 wheels on my 03 325i with sport suspension and i had to roll fenders with 245 40 18 tires and still rub.
Im guessing your suspension is freshened up? I cannot put a finger through my tire and fender. I did order new shocks because my car has 119,00 miles.
Can you do me a favor and measure from the center of the wheel to the bottom of the fender?
Im wondering if my springs are just tired.
