#2 would look pretty foolish on an E30. I've never been a fan of the Alpina style either, but if I had to choose out of those, then definitely #1.

Check these out... I think they look great on an almost-stock E30.

#1 would look great! E30s are too boxy to pull off a five spoke wheel.

I'll admit that they are attractive, but they just don't "do it" for me. Plus, they are pretty much the bandwagon choice in the E30 community.

Really? I don't think so... But even if this was true, I wouldn't prevent myself from getting them because a few guys I'll probably never meet have them...

Meh, call me a sucker for the classic BBS cross-spoke pattern. I don't think anything looks better on an E30. If I were buying rims, I'd pick up a set of Ronal LS', the 15x7.5 with the nice lip. Like stock, but sexier.
