It's actually just OEM ZCP Suspension. I too was surprised looking at the picture, since it almost looks lowered.

I like the graphite 18's, but I think that the e46m pulls them off a little better than the e9x.

Re, 219s, I think it has something to do with the smaller frame of the E46, fills in nicely.

I do think the 220s look like great on the E46 stock and cheesy on the E92 for some reason.

Must be an optical illusion. Looks great though!

You know how many times I have said that to myself?! 219m style in 19" would be gorgeous! I wish they made them. And yes, exactly. E46's look great with 219m because the smaller frame. The only negative to having a beefier body/fenders is that bigger and more aggressive the body is, the bigger and more aggressive the rims have to be.

Here is mine.

I feel like 80% of the cars in this thread with 18s are E90s. Coincidence?

I found some replicas, they are not exactly the same, but close. The difference is down the near the edge of the rim where spokes don't have the same shape (not exactly).

I just don't know offset wise whether these would work or not. They could be awesome winters or even summers. I'd repaint them Gunmetal though.

I love the stock 18's when the car is dumped and spacers are used.
