M Contours look good. Stick with 17" or your overall diameter will get too big, not to mention the extra weight. I just recently switched to '98 M3 Double-spoke II's and noticed a definite loss of acceleration due to the added weight - these wheels are about 24 lbs each. But damn they look good and my handling is way better than with the stock wheels and tires. I will be looking for a set of really lightweight wheels (Fiske or Kinesis at about 17 lbs. each but big $$$) in the same size when funds permit.
