Alright two questions here basically...

First of all. I would really really love to put the current generation M3 style wheels on my car but I worry that doing this would make me seem "poser" to the rest of the BMW community, and I dont want to come off that way. Another possibility is the "M" Design 17" Wheels that are 5 Spoke I think?

Anyway I see these on ebay all the time and I would love to put them on my 330I,however if theres a 17" version id be just as pleased:


These are the other ones im considering (can someone give me the name?):


OK Now that picture above brings me to my final question. Did my 330i Have an identity crisis when she came out of the factory??? My 330i SHOULD look like the one above (its the same red and edmunds claims thats a 2001 also), but instead it has the appearance package identical to this 330Xi below,right down to those nasty wheels!! I am almost 100 percent certain I dont have an Xi because first off I dont have the Xi badge. Also,if I turn off DSC and Brake Control, I can freely spin the rear wheels on a wet surface,something that would be impossible in AWD?? It sits up high like this one below also and id prefer a lower profile...

What my car looks like but in red:


WHAT GIVES?

Thanks!

Man, I saw a couple of those M5 version on ebay too! I think Id have to change my preference!

One things for sure, a full wheel and tire package for the 3 series is VERY reasonable! I love this car more and more every day.

VERY REASONABLE!!

When I pickup my car in March, Im selling the rims on ebay, Ive seen The 17' Sport wheels that come with my new 2004 325ci go for as high as 1700$$$ on EBAY!

The M5 wheels TOTAL package is like 1500, So i can change up my rims to the ones i want, and MAKE a hundred bucks!!

Or maybe ill just keep them... I dunno
