As far as I know none of the standard E46 came with anything bigger than 16".
You can't even fit most 16" on a 330i due to large brake rotors...mine came with 18" style 72...

I believe the 125's are available at Turner for $200 ea...

My Ride: MKV GTI 4 Door
Where do you race that changing the wheels takes you out of the stock class. The 17s might actually serve you better because they are lighter. Find four rear m68s 8.5 inches wide and run 255 tires all around.

Seems like it might be a little different here in Europe, as even my lowly 320 came with style 135 in 18" as standard. All part of the M-package...

My Ride: 99 328i
99 328i with style 72s. I'm sure they were added later (although the original window sticker does say it had the premium and sport package, but only 17" rims). They really make it look great. The first question I always get is "are those stock rims?"

The only problem is they are starting to pit.. that will happen to any rim in MN that is chrome.
