325i Space Grey 19" or 20" Wheel Choice

I have a stock 2006 325i and want to dish out some cash for a nice set of rims. Although I can spend any amount, I would like to keep it in a reasonable price range. Also, would you only recommend me putting 19"s on? or would 20"s fit and look better? I have a 25% tint on the front windows and a 5% tint on the back. I also have a grey carbon fiber like bmw logo. Those are the only upgrades.
A lot of people are coming out of the black rim phase, so this thread is really just to get opinions about rim color choice, and size and style. Pictures appriciated http://www.e90post.com/forums/images...s/coolpics.gif

Regards,
Michael

it really depends on what type of look you're after. OEM+, aggressive, etc. look around the board and see what inspires you. but i can tell you right now that 20's on our cars, especailly sedans's, look retarded and not proportional.

Get 19's, and buy what you like. I voted for silver though.
