Consider resale of the car. A lot of folks prefer buying unaltered "stock" cars. If you were able to keep the wheels, you could put them back on the car when you sell it down the road and then sell the new wheels separately for more money as well.

Also, having them around in case you have an issue with the new wheels is a good idea as well.

Lastly, you "might" be able to get a better price by selling them yourself if you choose to. I would imagine Discount will give a fair offer though.

Let us know what they offer before you make the decision. Factory BMW wheels (regardless of style) should fetch some decent money. , for your information, you should call a BMW dealership and get their price on each wheel if you had to buy one new from them. This will give you a good idea (even though dealerships always have high prices for factory parts).

Good luck.

Keep em for that price. You'll be glad you did if you ever bang up the nice new ones and need to go stock again, or if you sell you'll get more for the car stock and more for the frimps off the whip

Although those aren't one of the more popular style (325i) vs. say m3 or 330i. I would prob keep them cause u have 5 of them (spare matches) and just like everyone else says. If u mess up a new rim. U still have them. If u trade the car in. U can sell the new ones.

I know there not cheap at all (most like $2k-$2.5k) but bmw makes some really nice looking factory wheels for E90's (new 3 series) and they will fit your car.

keep them, sad to say but you may find your car on blocks some day.

When ever you see a car running around on 4 donuts or 4 plain black wheels that look like spairs thats because those where the wheels they could get the fastest.

Keep them. I doubt you could buy ONE rim (minus tire) from the dealer for that much. Also, I'd let them know you're offended by their lowball offer, haha.
