Default '97 318ti Sport upgrades and issues

Hey guys and girls,
I have a 97 318ti Sport and it is having its second problem with the drivers side window. When you go to role it up, it almost rotates on itself. I had the window regulator replaced and the little plastic thing that goes on the regulator replaced a couple months ago, but a couple dayz ago it started happening the same way again, any reason as to why its doin this?

As far as upgrades go, i want to add some sweet 18" chrome wheels. I need you help on what looks the best. I would really prefer chrome because my grandpa of whom i was way close too past away this weekend a day after his birthday and he always had chrome wheels on everything from his golf carts to his new cadillacs and trucks. We were supposed to pick some out, but his death was a complete surprise so that couldn't happen. So i need your help for the sweetest 18" chromes out there. I prefer the look of either the Mille Miglia mm11 or the SSR gt3 styles the best.
Another upgrade i would like is a catback exuast and the Downing Atlanta Supercharger, any feedback would be much appreciated!!!
Thanks a lot,

Mille Miglia wheels are really heavy. At least my Action Sports are. I know Mille Miglia makes some dope looking wheels but get a lighter wheel.
