VMR has a wide catalogue of wheels and I am sure one will be of interest to you. The nice thing about VMRs is that you can get aggressive offsets out of the box. The V701 and the V708 will both look great in an aggressive 19" setup. They're also pretty cheap.

and cast.

if your're in the mood or have the money to get OE wheels, get forged wheels. VMR makes a good wheel, but i'd be wary of MN roads with them. I found that out from years of experience with my S2000s 4 sets of rims before going forged. once it really bit me because they discontinued the wheel i had before i cracked one

They do have an S63 if someone was looking for a big body Benzo. While sitting here they just sold a 128i drop top. Interesting time to buy a cabrio but I suppose the price was probably right.

Yeah, 335i coupes around here have been pretty sparse, trust me, i've looked. Some lucky dude is going to get your car, unfortunately for me it's a little out of my price range.

Congrats! I was going to send you this but I forgot. Found this 335i locally from a private seller on craigslist

http://minneapolis.craigslist.org/ws...096618906.html

40k miles for 27.5k Seems like a pretty decent deal.

Black Saphire metallic is such a nice color! Definitely would be my first choice if I were to do it over again.

I love having a BSM color, but it's a bi&$@ to clean. If I had more patience, I'd take an Alpine White.

Having owned both, Sapphire > jet black any day of the week. Jet is great when it's brand new & clean but we live in Minnesota. it takes a beating. shows too much crap.

sorry man. but unless you're hyper anal about waxing and detailing the thing. i just don't think jet black is a good choice. I'd hate for you to be disappointed after your initial high comes down. I'm not trying to sway your decision, just adding input for a fellow enthusiast.
