    Hey guys! My name is Cal i'm 21 and a Vauxhall/Saab technician! I've bought my first BMW it's a 2002 320D SE Compact in Titan Silver. I don't pick it up until Thursday but i just can't wait to get my hands on it. Just wanted peoples opinions on the replica MV2 Alloys that are knocking around on ebay? Would 18"s fit well on an E46 Compact?
    Oh, one more thing, does the compact have angel eyes?
    Thanks Cal

    Cal, Welcome to the forum

    20's fit well on the E46 so you'll have no problems with 18's

    Welcome, they will be fine, I've got 18" MV3's on my motor....just make sure that your bushes are in good shape and have the alignment checked.

    Angel eyes came with the 5 series, not the 3 series as standard.

    sounds like you are looking forward to your new car, hope it goes well for you.

    I would just say, avoid the MV2 replica wheels and ensure they are genuine BMW units (better weight distribution and manufactured better).

    Is that the standard front end of a e46 compact or has it been modded in some way? Someone has got one near me and it doesnt look like that
