Great looking car. heres my 2 cents

Your wheels look a little too big, what are they 19's? I would say to improve the look your either going to have to go down to an 18" wheel, or run a much smaller profile tire like maybe a 35. Other then that a little tuck never hurt no one

The rest of the car looks great!

^ I agree. Smaller wheels and smaller tires.

I've always thought 17's look best on E36's.

Car looks great, but as already stated, wheels are a little too big. 17's or 18's, lower pro's, and a nice drop are in order.

once again thanks alot guys for taking your time to look, i think im just going to have to go with a drop and lower pro tires because the rim is actually an 18" and the tires are 235/45/18 all round. I was told by the shop who i bought them from that if i went with a smaller tire it was a high risk to go over pot holes since i could bend the rim, not to sure of how high the risk is ? also really debating weather to go with amber corners or stay with the clears ?

Those tires are way too big, that is what is making your car look funny. You probably rub alot up front with the wheels turned.

Go with either 225/40/18 or 245/35/18

Looks like your missing the mesh grill in the front bumper.
Next you might consider interior or engine upgrades?

Since your running an 18" Id recommend 215/35/18. Yes it will be a slightly stiffer ride, but you'll be fine as long as you avoid the big poth holes! I wouldnt recommend taking much advice from your average local shop. As woodbridge alignment told me my car was dangerous to drive because my suspension is too stiff.....

To help tuck your wheels in (rears) id recommend getting adjustible rear control arms. The prices vary by brand. start at about 180 for spc's to about 450 for UUC's.

For starters your side signals are missing!!!! Then you are missing a decent engine...... lol

Just kidding.
I would defo go for different wheels and possibly lower it slightly more at least at the front.
I would also add a spoiler possibly a highmounted one at the rear and a lip spoiler on the trunk. Other than that thats a decent looking car you got there!


Just look at Spoony for inspiration on his signature!!

And stay with the clears. I never liked amber on black cars! But that is just me!
And btw on a 318 235 tyres are an overkill....particularly at the front. Your car must feel dead slow.

I don't know, I really like the rims. I would drop as far as is goes with those rims and it should look retard.

Edit: I believe the term is sick, not retarded.
