(Thread Starter)
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

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!

Dude, shut up already. We all know your car is sweet, and that you've got as much power as an M3 blah blah blah

Actually, you wanna PM that to me too? I'm always interested in hearing more about swaps and stuff in the e36s as I eventually intend to do a teardown of my engine.

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.

No fret my good bimmer buddy. http://www.wheelexchange.com/products/whee..._bmw_18_03.html Not $500 a piece, but only $699.99 for 4. They are replicas, but have the exact same specs, but no BMW price tag.

Ok...now I owe you a beer! Although I just purchased new tires, I might buy these and hold onto 'em. Thanks bud!

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...
