02 e46 sedan on 19's

I'm fairly new to this site and love how helpful the members are. Lots of great threads. Well here's my 02 325i lowered on eibach springs. I did a double din install much better than stock navi, few small other things around the car. Pretty well done with the car I'm happy with it. I have some progress pics. I just snapped a few photos. I'm at work bored so I took a couple shots to post.

Chrome wheels are pretty hated around here but you seem to have done a better job than most. Your's isn't as flashy but more subtle and it flows with the car much better. Now you should try some clear corners with a black housing + clears all the way around to get rid of that amber. A sport or M3 steering wheels would make the interior look better. Other than that I think this car is pretty good. Keep it up!

I'm planning on smoking out the lights I wanna get the LED tails but that's pretty much it. Had ideas of a bigger motor and manual trans but not in the near future. You guys can hate on Chrome but I like staggered fitment and shiny tried to get dark chrome but the other kinds of rims were too intricate, I like simple and clean

Why don't people like chrome? Don't get it, this photo I saved I liked. Nice theme all dark , but no lip on the rear wheels. Just difference preference I guess.

Those are nice wheels..Yours look pretty good too, chrome can sometimes look ghetto. It would look even better lowered.

I think it looks pretty good...simple and clean.. you'll notice once you do some minor things to the car it will change the whole look of the car. My wheels(the black e46 posted) are my taste... aggressive concave and have a machined face so the shine isn't too chrome like but does have a little pop to it.

Keep up the progress man
