Did you get to the event at Kyalami in time?
Yea, it was a great meet!! :-) Hopefully next time, we can get "Anees", "E90Fleet" and "Lcharles" to join in - they all couldn't make this weekend!!

I did get to the Kyalami thing on time, but it was a bit of a waste. I got there at about 1.45 - huge queues to drive alfa's on the track, then at 2pm they stopped the test driving until 3.30-4. I didn't feel like hanging around, knowing I'd have to wait and the end of the huge queue, so I had a look around and left :-) Pity.

As for stickers, I have some E90post.com stickers. 3 inside ones, and 3 outside ones (I have an outside one). PM me if you want one, and I'll bring it alone to the next meet. I'm also going to try have ones made like my other sticker, where only the letters stick (and not a big clear sticker with print on it)

OK cool... May I have the inside E90Post.com sticker please? I will remind you before our next meet.

Pity about the Kyalami event thing... I'm sure it would have been fun to pilot the Alfas around the track .... well, next time then...

Hey Guys ,

Sorry , only got onto the forum today . Well , I truly enjoyed the meet , and we need to do it again . The photos look great !! It was nice meeting other guys crazy about the E90.

Thrill , Nabeel and Broken1 - your cars rock !! I can't believe how good the TiAG M sport 330d looked in real life - I just feel bad that I was the only guy without the blackline rear lights !

Nabeel - I knew you were gonna post that pic on the site !!

I am planning to go for a TiAG M Sport as well. Mine will be a 325i. One question because you have seen it real-life and I hope you will give an honest answer:

Should I go for the 18" wheels or are the 17" wheels nice enough? You can judge because there was a black M sport with 18" wheels too and I know that pictures do not always do justice to the 17" wheels.

Great choice...you can't go wrong with TiAG and M-Sport.... that is hot.... the bits that are black give a nice contrast.

IMO, the 17" wheels look cool on the TiAG M-Sport E90... however, I would advise you to go for the 18" M wheels to make your car "perfect"... I can't explain it but 18" wheels add that bit of "perfection" to the stance of the E90.

Well, that's my 2 cents.

Thanks for the kind words man.
I agree, the TiAG M-Sport rocks.

The Blacklines really make a huge difference in the looks department.... it's money welll-spent IMHO.

My opinion is that they both look great in real life - although the 17 inch wheel is smaller the design of the wheel is really good looking so it still looks good. What should you choose ?

Well the answer is are you concerned about ride quality ?

If you are , then the 17 inch will be better and still look good. If you want the ultimate in looks , as Thrill said, then go with the 18 inch. Either way you can't go wrong.

Personally , I won't go 18 inch until they invent run flat tires that give a better ride.

yo man go for the 18s ....the ride is not bad...plus like 90% of the cars in sa with the m kit have that 17 inch wheel and this one looks a bit diffdrent...if you dont liek the design then its a different story but i thin the 18 looks better, less people have it...for now, and the ride isnt bad at all..
either way u cant go wrong tho

Thrill30, Thavash & Nabeel333,

Thanks a lot for your advice . Thavash, the above is of great help. To me looks are important. However, my car doesn't have to be a head turner. Moreover, ride quality and comfort are important too. That's why I think the right compromise will be the 17" wheels.
