Hello, I just posted this same thing in the member section, but thought I'd post here in case people don't check there as often. I just bought (yesterday) a '92 318i, and am wondering what sort of wheels came on it. They look nice, but I haven't taken them off yet to see what brand label and such might be behind them. The attached pic isn't great, and I will get more of her in the next day or so (just a quick composite of 4 small images taken at the dealership right before I bought her). Thanks for all replies.

They are supposed to be stock, of course, but I know manufacturers sometimes buy from more than one supplier (hence wondering more about what they are if anyone knew). Also, I haven't seen these exact wheels on any other BMWs before, though I know I haven't seen quite enough to know for sure whether these are more common than I think. I rather like these wheels, and the car in general, so I'm just trying to learn what I can about the pieces...hehe

Maybe the dude though someone had seen the wheels before or had them on their car and would know what kind they were. Don't be so quick to be mean and insult eachother. DAMN!

Also (though I may regret asking...lol), what do you guys think of what you can see of her, so far? I've seen many of the cars pictured in these forums, so I know I'm not top-end or anything, but I always like to know what people think or what advice someone can offer (the good kind). Color is staying the same, btw, but I'm open to suggestions on about anything else involved here.

spook, you made a great decision with a BMW. That's really all I have to say. If you're gonna mod her, go for it. There are plenty of posts with suggestions for people that are going to mod.

good luck with the car and congratulations.

Thanks Iantosca, I may do a few small mods, but not likely anything too major. I tend to keep my cars close to stock (with the exception of brighter headlights, different pads sometimes, etc.). My Porsche (and likely my wife) would probably get mad at me if I paid too much attention or gave too many mods to the BMW, anyway...lol As for the comment about the headlights, Skawful (or someone who knows what he may mean) are you suggesting just getting new ones, as I know the current ones are probably needing replacement (suggestions on just getting new Xenon factory lights?), or some different lenses or something?

I'd buy them from bavauto.com ... either way, you are gonna wanna get them. That is actually going to be my first mod ...1 year after getting my car. Clears and new headlights; oh and to remove the dent in my car from when the guy who tried to carjack me kicked the door. :lol:
