My significant other has decided that the 3 series is too small for a family of 4
and a golden retreiver.

Okay, not a problem!!!!!
Got a teenage daughter going to college next year, the perfect
well maintained, safe and classy car to roll into campus with!!!!!

I have since learned that she is not interested in owning a free BMW!
"Too small and the drink holders are not big enough"

" I want a cool car like a Mazda or a toaster"

That does it, anyone need a nitwit teenage daughter???????
Ungrateful daughter

Naw sorry buddy but those wheels are far worse than stock. But it's all good seeing as you got it that way. My advice is to sell em on cl and get something else.

Those wheels Should definitely come off. Glad to see someone else in AZ though. I'll be coming back from deployment soon and get out of the Marines in November and hopefully going to ASU for Health Science. Mine's a 2003 M3

Compared to your wheels, the stock ones are beautiful.
