I personally have Enkei EKM3s on my 330ci, they're gunmetal so the black of the car and the gunmetal colors contrast perfectly in my opinion. Most VMRs look really good and give a very sporty/M look. Just a couple to throw out there...

The top picture is from when I had my V703s on a couple months ago, and the bottom is now with my EKM3s on... Just a couple inch drop from some H&R sport springs and I'll be good to go. Good luck!

that's the thing with cheap chrome, it flakes and costs more to re-chrome than some new wheels. although its hard to see but i really didn't think yours were chromed.
either way 20s are way too big for the car, look like wagon wheels. i'm sure they're heavy too, makes for a slow car. i suggest 18s (or 19s at the largest). there are a lot of aftermarket companies for our E46s, I too like VMR for their great style and well priced wheel.
if you have deep pockets I would search for some BBS wheels.

The pic in my sig is of my 330 on 18" VMRs VB3 in hyper-silver. Awesome wheels that aren't too heavy and were $525 used from a fellow forum member. You can click on the picture to see it in full size or see some of my other pics.
