I just bought an E46 328 through a dealer trade. However, the dealer claims that the vehicle that I am trading for has the Sport wheels from the 323 as an "upgrade." I have not seen these wheels and am skeptical about their appearance. I saw the picture a few posts back, but I'm having a tough time envisioning the way they will on the car. Anyone have any opinions on these 323 sport wheels vs. the standard 328 wheels?

I've seen the pictures in previous post, and the general consensus is that the wheels are "hideous" (I believe that's how a couple of people described them). Do us all a favor and let us know as soon as you see them.....I think one guy said the wheels look much better in person.<br></i>

Go to www.bmw.ca/navbar/index1-2-2.html and click on customize. It might help you get an idea how it will look.

<i>: Sorry about that, here is the direct link to the page in question.<p>: http://www.bmw.ca/3sedan/customize/index.html<p></i><p>It looks like the Canadian 323 sport wheels are<br>the 5-spoke, which I like A LOT better than the<br>10-spoke that we've been hearing that the<br>US market's getting -- although another poster<br>indicated that there might be a switch from the<br>10 spoke to a smaller version of the 328 sport<br>in cars produced starting late this year or <br>early next year. Here's the link to my E46<br>page with the 10 spoke (bottom left, B&W picture):<br>http://www.theFixx.org/bmw/E46

<br>Ok, I just called my dealer (again) and mentioned<br>the Sept 22nd bullitin with the 323i sport wheel<br>picture. He looked it up. He says that they do<br>have 10 wide flat spokes, and that it's style<br>"S54".<p>He says that he hasn't heard anything about a <br>change in wheel style, but that they do such<br>things often so it wouldn't surprise him at all.<p>-- jeff
