Huntsman, they look similar enough to the original E24 wheels (which are almost always replaced with aftermarket wheels due to the metric TRX tire problems) that there's no way they could look rice-y. The only way the Style 5's could look better on the E24 is if they had a stepped lip, which they don't. That's splitting hairs though, considering how great they look on 6ers. Others seem to agree, since there are many examples to look at if you google 'E24 style 5'

original M6 TRX (BBS 'RA' style?)

I said wheels, I feel like I'm trying to be cool if I say rims.

Considering the age of your car, you may want to consider getting a cut+buff at a pro paint shop, just once to start you off once the wheels are in place and you're happy with what's there and want to clean it up. Those old BMW paints are pretty good for at least one cut and then regular waxing.

To most people the terms are synonymous so why even make a big deal about it?

Argh, got the infamous P0171 P0174 codes. Running too lean. Probably a vacuum leak or faulty MAF.

Also been having some intermittent rough idle issues where the car will stall out at neutral.
