You'd notice. One set would look really square and the other would look really stretched.

Give K&N a call and see if they can supply with a new carb sticker?

Personally, I am not a big fan of angel eyes on the e46. They don't look right to me.

Either way they would need a aggressive drop to look good on Ed's car. The type 2's even more so because they are an open 5 spoke. The CSL's would also definitely need a drop because they're 19's. Both of you are acting special here...

The front definitely needs a drop and probably alignment at this point which is why it looks higher than normal, I wouldn't be surprised if the camber is completely out of whack on the front end.
nah it wouldn't. the csl's anyways. it would definitely look better with a drop. but it looks fine stock too. it's like 1 finger gap all the way around on stock. doesn't look like what he has right now lol

Heya who knows if CSUN or CSULB have decent accounting programs? Talked to my counselor yesterday and since my school options have changed I've relooked at schools again. She mentioned those two having solid programs but not much else. I was hoping for some better feedback.
i don't think any of the schools really excel in accounting. but i know a lot of people that went to CSULB for accounting. i guess it must be somewhat good.
