Abix wants to steer clear of the BBS style wheels found on most modded bmws... i think he wants something like a 5 spoke deep dish wheel.

Deep dish wheels would look killer on the beemer. If the car is going to be black, then matt black wheels would suit it best. For a blue beemer, white or golden wheels (a la subaru WRX) would look super.

Blue IMO has always brought the best in this particular model of BMW.
Id vouch for the blue, it'll look awesome.
Only downside is it will attract a lot of attention and make your car easy to spot by the damn cops.

Oh, quick thought, the blue can be a dark metallic one.
It will look awesome and wont be too flashy either - like the light blue in your picture.

Thats car is on OE 15" wheels, i think the owner wants to keep it that way because he doesnt want to increase the wheel dia. The projectors are available in black as well.

Nooo, how can u do that to my baby!! lol! now it looks like a before and after case! As far as paintjob goes, i agree blue would look hot, but its not what im picturing my E36 to be as it would be too loud and am sorta growing out of it. Down to two choices, black or charcoal grey! ... hope im not breaking any hearts!
