Hi guys been after these rims for a long time. Finally managed to get my hands on a pair.

I bought Genuine CSL rims only a few months ago. I'll keep the CSLs for winter I guess as it rains a lot in the UK.

My only reservations are the thickness of the tyres need them lower profiling...

Opinions welcome...


Before:




After:












Hope you like :)

Thanks for the comments guys, good to hear you like them. I am currently running 225/40/19 and 265/35/19 which I do hate. Comfort wise excellent but I'd much prefer 235/35/19 and 275/30/19 exactly as I had it on the CSLs.

I hate to be the debbie downer here, but I think your car looks better with the CSL's, the new rims look a little tacky on such a beautiful car (love that color, and it looks well taken care of)...but at the end of the day, its your car and if you like them that is all that matters.

Annnnd, that is a sick blue! It's like... God came down and mixed his own blue just so we could put it on E46 M's. If I didn't like my Titanium Silver so much I'd rock that blue.

They will only fit on the e46 m3 fenders/arches but you can get your arches rolled if you want see on your 330ci.

Thanks for the comments guys still have the CSLs just in case I change my mind...but I'm enjoying the ACS and can't believe how light they are, even lighter than the CSLs! Colour is a BMW individual colour: Atlantis blue. ;)

E46 pinoy just the rears rolled will be fine. Even you get CSL (genuine) you I'll need to do the same ;)

Yournalternative would be to use four front rims then you wouldn't need to roll the fenders.
