Opinions: E36 - which wheels for my car ????

I photoshopped these up quick to get an idea of what my car would look like with OEM BMW replicas on it....I think I am leaning towards the TYPE 71. I may add more but this is a start....any other ideas??

Then what would you suggest?

I am also considering the old standard M-Parallel....was looking at Beyern 5's.

Just a comment, there's no way you can get the right size when you photoshop them... I mean the pic you get of the rims you don't know from how far is taken so you can't match it to how far away you took the pic of your car...

type 71's are one of my favourite rims for BMW. period. dont even bother with the M6 reps, they are nasty on an E36. for my E36, i'd kill to have 71's. a set of 4 was up on eBay a while back. local sale, with tires. went for $900 for the set. what a steal! too bad i didn't have cash at the time.

anyways, do you know a place that sells style 71 replicas? i haven't seen replicas of those before. only ben able to find replicas of M3, M5, and CSL.

OEM Style 68s. Staggered...look great on E36 and have the fat tires in the back makes it look more aggressive
