Re: Anyone selling stamped LTW wheels?

Full specs on all BMW wheels here:

8.5" LTWs come in at 9.48kg (~20lbs) so yeah, not super lightweight.

Re: Will Coupe Floor Mats fit Convertibles?

I went on a hunt a few months ago for new grey floor mats for my convertible. My local dealer told me they were NLA, black was still available. I ended up finding some grey ones on eBay, genuine BMW...

Re: Bone stock lap times at Laguna Seca?

I ran a 1:58 in my convertible with just a UUC front sway bar. Stock wheels with street tires. It was my first and only time at Laguna so It's probably not a great time, but its a data point for ya....

Re: Looking for Black Wheels for My Estoril Blue Sedan

These are my OZ wheels, they're Anthracite, not black, so they've got a nice sparkle to them. I've typically been against dark wheels, but I took a chance when I bought these and I absolutely love...

Re: Convertible - C pillar interior headliner coming off

I had this repaired when my top was replaced, but I did buy new plastic wings and cables. The shop didn't seem to have any troubles getting the cables routed properly or anything though.

Re: Manual transmission fluid

The seal is serviceable with the trans in the car. But it is definitely not fun and is infinitely easier with the trans out of the car. If you have any reason to have the trans out in the near future...

Re: WD40 Killed Idler Pulley

This. I have a small shelving unit full of different lubricants/sprays/penetrating oils/fluids/etc. in my garage. Not a single one of them is WD40.

Re: Is you have a low mileage M3... think again cluster swap

I don't know if they've been entirely useless. They could probably be used for some sort of grammatical lesson.

Lol. Salty. You asked a stupid question, don't be angry about a sarcastic/rude response. Going to a dealer with a VIN for one car and asking for info about others is pretty backwards.

Re: Apex Anthracite too "modern" for my e36?

I think they look great! Although I may be biased.. I have anthracite wheels on mine too, not Apex, but still. I will mirror the others and say that I prefer 17"s but those do look quite nice.

Re: Leather Seat Reupholstery Options

I appreciate your input but really this is useless to me. I don't have Vaders and I'm looking for a full kit, rears included. Also at that price point I'd be very skeptical of the quality.
