I agree 100%. For some reason in pictures the 18 TE37 looks better on the M3, but in person I think the 19s look better. They are the perfect size for the big m3. Unless you run ridiculously beefy rubber the 18s just look a little small. Not bad--just small. This is just personal opinion. I am sure there are others that would say just the opposite. I have 19x9.5 +30 and 19x10.5 +25 and I could not be happier. They look great, are more agressive, and are still lighter than the factory wheels.
Also this is unrelated, but I have found that cars that are lowered look better in photos, but stock ride height looks better in person. Weird I know, but just my observation. I am really happy wth how my car looks at stock ride height in person, but when I look at pictures of my car it looks a bit monster truckish....
