I have 162s with the original runflats on my E46 sedan. It is lowered on Eibach ProKit, not overly low, but I can put 4 people on the car and no rubbing. Not sure how the sedan compares to the coupe but I hope that helps you in some way.

Good luck... 162's look great on E46s and I get a lot of compliments.

I cant seem to find a set either.

So far I have only found 18'' which is fine but do they make 19'' style 162's ?

I got them on my e46 coupe. Look better. I am looking to drop it too but needs the right springs. Mine are staggered 225 and 255.
