My Ride: BMW E46 328i
Hey VMR, I noticed that most of the cars posted here have been dropped. Im picking up a set of v710's for my 99 328i and I was wondering which set up would look best since my sedan has completely stock suspension.

You will be most happy with VB3 as they are an aggressive stock look due to your standard suspension. I had v710's on my car on stock sport height and I took them off right away because of the 4x4 look they gave my car. Next week I was on suspension and it looked perfect. The v710's are really aggressive looking and need an aggressive drop to look completely right. CSL Reps aka VB3 will work on stock height but run with 18" if you don't plan to lower. Having 19" would be too aggressive of a wheel/fender gap ratio. When you decide to lower the suspension, 18" can look very much at home if you do it right. There are some angles where 19" looks too big for our non ///M 3 series but a perfectly dropped E46 on 18's can look sweet at ALL angles.

Couldn't have said it better! Also look into the V718 wheel, it is similar in style to the VB3, but is a bit different as far as concavity and spoke design:

I'm running stock sport package suspension with V710's and love the look.

I think you guys should offer the V710s in 18x10. I'd be the first to buy a set after I sold these.

fuuu, scraped my wheel yesterday, so after the summer i have to let them repair and repaint my vb3's should i consider powdercoating, or just a respray? and it's difficult to pick a color... Hyper silver looks awesome on TiAg but powdercoating isn't available in hyper silver, but matte black or gunmetal could be cool to,... or white...
