chrome rims are more bling bling for suv, MB, or higher end luxury cars...i consider bmw more sport/racing oriented espically with the 3 series and doesnt look good in chrome rims...they look amazing with deep lip rims in the back and smaller lip'd rims up front

I guess you've never seen brian_m3's Titanium Silver E46 M3 on Chrome Hartge Classics.
Looks hot.

Why do you worry about what other people think?

If you like them, get them! Simple as that.

I had chrome Cragar SS on my '75 Chevy Nova but that was a '75 Nova. I will not put chromes on my E46 though.

Ah, to each his own...
