I tried to let this thread die a natural death.

I debadged the car and purchased the M badge. I stuck it on with a bit of blue tac just to see the difference in looks and I decided to stay de-badged. I still beleive it's a personal thing and each to their own. I changed the exhaust tips to duals and next mod is wheels.

i have 19's on the e46, and they are fine on stock suspension (coilovers are going in after a few months on thursday, finally!)

so as you can get 19's standard on an e90, wouldn't that be fine on stock suspension? after all teh biggest wheel you are meant to have according to bmw on an e46 is an 18... ? when e90 is 19?

E90 i think mine are the largest wheel - 18's. The 335 can come 19's i think..but not the 320-330's series. Just what the dealer mentioned as I wanted 19's put on, but stuck with the 18's .Im ahppy with my 18's though fell the bumps with the RFT as it is...imagine 19's!

my dealer told me that, they just read it off the sticker on my door sill... but i have exactly the same rolling diameter as i did when i had the 17's, as to now... the dealers don't seem to make sense
