    Welcome to bimmerforums nathan.

    I'm looking for some decent wheels that will fit, i'll have to go hunting the gallery or owners cars etc... As a kid I used to love the M3 Evo wheels... but looking at them now they just dont have the same feel to them... what else is there floating about?!

    Whats wrong with my wheels

    Lol.

    A popular choice is the BBS LM Reps. They are lovely looking wheels which suit german cars down to the ground. They come in 18 or 19 inch. You would have to lower your car to make it look acceptable though.

    You can get BMW replica alloys for your car, but they look.......well.......erm ......not quite right.

    Personal choice though.

    there are loads of wheels out there

    as previously said bbs lms in 18s or 19s are a good option or if you can afford them some bmw style 5s
    there are alot of oem spec wheels that look fantastic on the compact and can be had for reasonable cash monies
