Just wanted to say hello to everyone and that I am looking forward in sharing knowledge about BMW's. I have been reading everyones reviews for the past month and I am impressed with the amount of help and advise everyone gives each other. I hope I can help everyone out as well as learning something new from all the members. I have owned a BMW for three years now and recently bought a 1998 328is (45,000 miles). My last one had over 300,000 miles on it. I am a firm believer in BMW's and wouldn't want to drive anything else. I will post a picture of my 328is as soon as I find a nice digital camera. Hope everyone has a great week and thank you for letting me join the group. mike
What Bavarian Auto did you own prior your 328is. I am curious because I went from a 1993 525i Touring, and while i miss the space and comfort, my e36 reminded me why I have owned a lot more manual coupes than wagons!
If you wish to start improving your car, lemme know. Notice i said improve, as I am not into some of the mods that may have adverse effects. I have managed to do many things that BMW would have, if they didn't have so many regulatory agencies to deal with!
jillphan, I like your ride, very smooth touch. I am interested in those M3 wheels that you have. I want to buy something similar if not identical to yours. Are those wheels of that year the car was produced? I am curious because I see used and refurbished ones for a couple of hundred bucks a piece, online.
Those wheels are of the E36 era. Go to www.aaarims.com -> product catalog -> factory originals -> select 1998 BMW -> M3 -> and search. They are the sixth and seventh wheels down, product numbers 592571F, 592581F. Not a bad price.
I searched wheel exchange for yours but I'm guess yours are rare because they didn't have them. nack, if you aren't sure about what wheels to get I suggest wheelexchange.com too or the previous aaarims.com. I got my rims from wheelexchange.com and they are amazing.
Camp they do look great, nothing to take away from you there. But there is a resaon for a difference in price. Beyond the fact that the oem units are staggered, they are also much lighter and stronger.
Is it worth the difference to a poor kid like me? Of course not. But just so everyone else knows, there is justification for the added cost...
