Hello: New to the forum. Just picked up a 2004 CPO 330Ci with only 777 miles on it. Looking to upgrade to 18" wheels. Suggestions?

An 18" wheel is a good size to upgrade to the first time. You can always go to a 19" if you want that look, as some do.

I don't like to recommend a certain style of wheel as your taste could be drastically different.
You know if you want a mesh or spoke type wheel. Do you like a nice lip on them or an OEM look?

There are great replica wheels available from our great forum sponsors. Like the CSL rep. for example. If you want a strong yet lightweight wheel you may want a forged custom wheel,.. DPE, Iforged, HRE, BBS. Getting into that arena of equipment is much more costly $$.

Look around the forum showroom and find the wheels you like best. look at the wheels that members have for sale also. Some really good deals.
GL with your search!!!

Thanks everyone. I really miss the ring lights. I have them on my 5 series and my X3.

How tricky is the Angel Eye install? Anyone know of an installer in central NJ that would do a nice job?
