Nice big style 32 BMW wheels (radials). They suit it really well and have a nice dish on the rears.

I too have a soft spot for the 32 Radials. Had them in 16" on two previous E36's (Compact & Touring). 17"'s especially 18"'s would look good. Of the choices listed I would go with the M5's (though I don't particularly like black wheels).

Mick,

If you're going genuine I'd say style 37's (M-Parallels). I know they are a popular wheel but I personally think they look the mutts and very easy to clean as well! I am rather biased as well though!

Eh no.

I'd be afraid to drive those anywhere and what a pain to clean as well
