hi all, bmw noob here

Hello all, nice to finally join the site, im new here obviously, and also new to the bmw World, i have always like the 91-98 body styles 3 series so i just finally gave up and got 1, went to Richmond VA to pick up a 94 325is for 2k with 200k miles i like the wheels that came with it when i got it but just dont like the offset cuz it rubs the fender.. i hope to learn alot from here, and thank you in advance.

Welcome to Bimmerwekz. You seem to have picked up a really clean E36. AlpineWhite is an excellent color.

Welcome to the Werkz

Enjoy your new ride, it looks pretty tidy for its age, and a good color as well.


Riding in style

What are the rims on it? Feel free to post more pics. Is that a BC license plate?

Looks good. Those look like the ASA AR1 wheels. I have a set of 18"s on my car

BMW does have a similar style but it doesn't have the lip. On my ASA wheels the center logo pops out and can be replaced with BMW logo center caps that lip is Definitley indicative of aftermarket.

The spokes to me look the same, but its hard to tell. You are right about the lack of the bolts (even though their fake anyway), so yours most likley are a replica set. Next time you have to take one off take a look and see what it says on the inside.
