First Of All I Just Bought A 2000 -323I- For $11,000 with 71,000 miles on it. You think i got ripped off or it was a good deal?

Another Is My car is premium package not premium & Sport so my car came with 15' rims on it. So what size aftermarket rims should i get, also what color & What brand ? My Car Is Black !

Also Does Hamann Sell Roundels in place of your BMW Roundels?
If So Where Can I Get My Hands on them ?

The Hamann roundels you can get at the car shops at Pacific Mall or KennedyHiFi the car audio store in Scarborough.

Oh, you are from the US.... Check Ebay for the roundels.

Wheels, you can +1 to 16" wheels or you can go up to 20"
Most E46's stay in the 18-19" range. The larger wheels have more rotational mass though so performance is lowered.

15" wheels? I thought they came standard with 16" because the calipers are to big? Or am I thinking of the Cabrio 323?

I belive you are thinking of the 323Ci as they came standard with 16" wheels and the regular 323i's just came standard with 15" wheels.

As for what brand of rims you should get, it would really all depend on what you personally like and how much you wanted to spend. You could spend a fortune going with a brand like HRE, and a lot less going with other companies.

As a resource you may want to use http://www.wheelsboutique.com, you can put in the year of your car, the style (e46) and the size of the rims you want, and it will bring up quite a few different brands that will fit your car. Their pricing isn't all that bad either (bought some hre's from them earlier this year :) )
