Looking for WHEEL ideas for my BMW

I own a Silver 2005 330ci with black convertible top. I'm looking for 18" European style mesh that make the stagger pop with deeper dish in the rear.

I was looking at Beyern Mesh but wanted more ideas. Not many places where live sell decent wheels.

Thanks,

Joseph

Buy Nerdy's ghetto gold 32's, so he'll put on the proper silver OEM's. (Jus kiddin Nerdy.)

if you want something nice and a good bang for the buck with a nice offset, contact navith (whatsBFC) about a set of varrstoen. you can get a band new set for approx 900-1000

Actually the more I look at them the more I like the CLS reps. Reminds me of the ones I saw on Gti's and BMW when stationed in Germany back in the early 90's. I had some just like this on my Gti.

I see a sponsor on the CLS thread selling them, but for a couple hundred more than I see elsewhere. What's up with that? I always thought sponsors gave better deals. Ouch!

So I'm talking to a guy at üm•nitza trying to make sure I get the right offset etc. and he recommends non-staggered. I don't think I can go from staggered to non-staggered.

these are probably gonna be your best bet for csl reps. they looks closest to the real thing, and they are fairly light.

Me-thinks OP should go with CSL's.

Now, to thread-jack.

Gimme your honest thoughts on my Sports Package 17"'s style 171's that I never see another E46 have? I've seen no other E46 w/them...so perhaps they're rare? I'm from Canada, if that makes a difference, perhaps they never came on US Sports models? (I do have a set of 4 M3 wheels...all-fronts charcoal powder coated , 'cept the outer lip aluminum trim, that I've been not only too lazy to put on, but I'm getting to re-like my 171's...easy to clean, etc.....are they butt? Bare in mind, I tend to be a bit of a stock-freak. CSL's would be a big leap for me, but maybe they'd look good on my cabrio? Anyway, back to my Q...do you or do you not like my 171's?)

I would never do business with üm•nitza.

As I posted above the guy was trying to talk me into 18x8" all the way around. I say no way, then he comes back that they are out of 9" wide, but he can get me some for a higher price. I see why the sponsor is here now and that's who I'll be going with.

I was the one responding to you last night about your wheel choices.
18X9" are currently out of stock indefinitely, so we have to swap our some 8" wheels with another vendor, which raises the shipping price.
Please don't be so judgmental about our services. We do our best to accommodate every customer's needs and wants as much as we can.
if we can't suit you with that style, then we are sorry, but if we can or if another style matches your needs, we offer the best possible prices on wheels and back it up with our immediate responses. You could pay more for the same wheels elsewhere and under no circumstances will we ever "talk you into something" you don't want to do.
Konstantin.

When someone asks for staggered wheels they are not asking for non-staggered wheels. It's smacks of going into a car dealership to buy a new BMW M3 and the salesman starts showing you used 325's. I have years of experience in sales and own my own business. Call it judgmental if you like, I call it being real.
