Stumbled onto this forum while trying to research a 02 330xi I'm thinking about buying. I'm torn on it, and it's driving me crazy. I love the looks of the car, except the wheels, which I hate. I also don't like the wood trim that it has, but that's minor. I have found some wheel sites, and they just list that there wheels fit i/ci models, and none of them state xi. I know that the xi has some differences due to the AWD, wheelbase/ride height. I'm really wanting to know if I will be having any clearance issues with different wheels/tires as compared to an i model. I would really like to drop it some also, which probably isn't helping. I need to know if there are different offsets for the xi model and any factors that could limit my wheel selections. As a side note, what would I have to do to drop the car and inch or two? I'm sorry I'm not real knowledgeable with cars, but I'm trying to learn here. Am I thinking correctly that BMW's have coilovers that could easily adjust ride height? Sorry so many questions, but I couldn't find any answers to these questions with search. Thanks all.
