I am on a decision of which one to get for my car. If you don't know what my car looks like here. http://www.bmw-forums.com/forum/inde...howtopic=35039 at the very bottom. I need to figure out which one i will get first maybe i will get my rims from aaa and the lights from umnitza. I just need to know which one to get first i will get them both eventually just right now i need to know. Anyone with comments would be appreciated too. Thanks.

Kevin

well, right now, hmmm, lights are good, but rims are what will make people look at your car more, if you want that, then get rims, if you dont really care TOO much about what people think of our car, go with lights, but if you want people to notice your car, and you go lights, not that many people will notice, unless they are like 'omg lights burning my eyes".

Go with rims....BMW lights are good enough stock and changing the rims will add way more style to your ride than the lights.

Also, you will get no performance enhancement fromt the lights, but your handling will be greatly improved with some light weight rims and sticky tires. You will notice a large decrease in tire sidewall flex with some low profile tires.

Well, we offer angel eyes for $90 (you need euro projectors first, though)... so why not do both?
If not, we offer Rims from $599 a set... we even have a shipment of CSL wheels coming in this week

ZKW's tends to be less expensive, but rims will be noticed more than ZKW's, I am buying my ZKW's first and going to save up again for rims

for this guy....get rims 1st....at least on ebay he can get a nice pair of 16s or 17s OEM Alloys used/like new to brand new for bet. $300 to $600 for the set. Most already have performance tires mounted on them....But then It also depends on the style you want.

If you got a budget then go with Depos and get rims later.
