If not the arc-8 ... what wheels?
Best deal would be one of the e90/92 18" wheels

If I had to choose between those two the 189 looks like it would fit more. the 162 needs a drop to look passable on the e46. The wheel design is too "fluidic" for the "rougher" edges of the chassis.

All these feels require a subtle drop though

It can be. Sometimes takes me less than 2 minutes to go from home to work, sometimes 10 minutes.
On the way back, 10-15 minutes. Ugh.
