I agree the five-spoke look is awesome. 189s look OK on the E92, but they look much better on an E90.

I want to get some 313s, but they are so damn expensive. Might have to wait until next year.

Thanks fella's.....They actually really grew on me and I like em a lot...Now I'm thinking spacers in the back to fill it in a bit. I was hoping that it would with the larger rear, and it did, just not enough IMO.
Thanks

I'm away from home this week ... means I have to drive a Corolla slushbox rental. Now I truly understand the point of buying a BMW.

Jeller - Love the silver w/ 189's. Looks really sharp! What are you running now?

CJ421 - It just makes you realize what you really have once you get back into it . This is my first BMW, I thought I had some nice cars before (08 Altima, 06 TSX) but none compare to this!

Auto - I'm saving my pennies to come see you....My car needs your touch. I've checked out some of the pics and your site....Hopefully soon.

Something about this Corolla though ... I can park next to people, not have to look for potholes, and ... my stress level is 0 because I don't have to give a SHIT!

Anyways you guys have experience buying jacks? I want to paint my calipers while the car is new.

I'm on Wehrle Dr. near Garrison. So def let me know if there are any meets!

I bought a speed jack from Advance Auto. It's a great jack and inexpensive. I would also invest in those slick adaptors they have that fit it the jack points. Just my $.02 :-)

Man you guys are boring ... our thread has fallen to the third page!!

I got my 7500k fogs, gonna install them next weekend - going away this week again. Need to get a jack beforehand.
I ordered a sunshade for my car (OEM, from Tischer/getbmwparts - $48), the black interior just gets too hot in the sun even with tint.

I also ordered some BMW Performance metal pedals.

I would have met some of you guys up there..

I ended up dragging the lady with me before we went to Allentown Art Fest. Lovely restomod(sorta) 356 Porka there and gorgeous lineup of vintage Jaguar amongst a bunch of other cars in really great shape.

I think the shady weather didnt help the turn out, but some nice cars indeed. Really like the Lotus 7 (newer model). Too bad I will never fit in one

I had to get some work done on the house...BOOOOO But I did see a few nice cars driving to the show. Wasn't sure where they were going. If I got on a computer yesterday I probably would have tried to get up there for a few minutes...
