Re: BMW Wheels No Longer Available

I’ve had 17x8.5 et 26 and it was no bueno. I’m pretty low though, and no camber plates. It definitely needed plates, but you might be right you could get away without a roll. But it’s tight with a...

Re: BMW Wheels No Longer Available

Keep in mind fitment isn’t straight bolt up depending on your suspension setup.
KWs would need a 12mm spacer, then you are looking at 17x8.5et29 up front. You would need rolled fenders and/or camber...

Re: OEM Strut Bar + Risers

Risers are all over the place. I got mine with a GT wing that was snapped in half for $500 2 years ago, but that was lucky as ****. Sent you a message...

Re: BMW Wheels No Longer Available

The rears were also not available for a while until recently (last 3 months or so)
Hopefully the fronts go back into production.

Re: Unique color M3 on BaT

It’s reasonable enough. I mean the same car in any other colour would have been 11-12.
Colour premium plus telling everyone you are cool and won a BAT auction is a bargain for an extra 2k

Another ex VW owner who never meets the minimum flair requirements. Congrats on the pickup. White sedan on style 24s is a great look.

I have to admit I loved yours Sam.
I feel it’s kind of like dove interiors. When you see a perfect one, they look amazing. Anything less, which is so common, they just look so rough.

I’m talking about on the internet. They aren’t that rare. Either way, it’s a random guess since it’s pretty trivial.

Re: How rare is the E36 Slicktop??

The short answer is no one knows. It’s just too small of a detail on a run of too many cars to compile all the information about it.
If I had to guess though I’d bet 1/30 I see are slick tops.

Re: LTW ambers and a drop.

It’s red. The OEM stuff has red Kevlar thread. The Center console and front ashtray are reps, and have a bit too much red compared to OE. Rear ashtray and dash strip are OEM
