well i do want the the m5 rims but finding them for sell is not easy it seems i been looking but no luck, and i really dont want to get the fake one unless someone can testify and say they are worth the money. i keep seeing those fm replica versions but i dont know. as far as it seems as tho the m5 is also the only real option to go with. i seen a few others but im young still here and need to pay for college before i go wasting 2000 dollars for one the fron bumber of a kit. well if anyone has any good advive please do tell. also i forgot to mention that i want the new headlights added to it as well since those look very on bimmers. whats the best brad to get those i keeo hearing bout these devil eyes or sometihng of that sort? thank you all.

p.s is anyone near me has an m5 and wants to give me a ride in when i get back it would be a great way to support this troop lol

I have been advised to and have dealt with www.lakeshorewheelandtires.com formerly www.aaarims.com to purchase OER wheels for my 1992 BMW e36 320i. The product, shipping and support are superb, as well as the price. I would suggest giving them a twirl. The weight of the replica wheels were my biggest concern, but they werent any heavier than the OEM wheels they replaced, and had a superb finish.

I cant wait for the arrival of my EuroSpec 520i to arrive to get a fresh order of M-Paralells.

Regards,

Chris

M5 rims and M parallels are both great sets of rims. With either choice there will be no disappointment. www.bavauto.com is a GREAT website that will defintely help you with some clean looking body kits and many other visual/performance modifications!

Good Luck!
