  1. Nice E39 you got there. Below is the build sheet 1998 build with goodies like sports seats, msport suspension, msport steering wheel. In my opinion, this is a factory non msport car but with the few msport options ticked when originally ordered rather than a msport with standard bumpers. Easiest giveaway imo is all msport has the option code for "anthracite interior" which translates to black/dark grey headlining/pillar fabric as opposed to the light grey. Nevertheless, looks like a very well sorted car especially with all that work done to it it must drive like new!

  2. FYI our current set up on our E91: 18x8 ET13 225 40 18 18x9.5 ET25 with 255 35 18 Could have gone with 265 35 18 on the rear for a straighter sidewall. Seeing as you are trying to fit ET20 on 9" wide rims, I would say you are bang on with 225 front and 245 rear otherwise it will need some guard work.
  3. ^ lol E39 list..
  4. u can just pay $369 for any "euro" plate and go to a sign shop and get a custom sticker printed and apply it on top. Heaps of people have done it and there is nothing wrong with that.
  5. these are the only pics I found but they will stick out for sure. my ET22 wheels sit almost 100% on the guard edge so there is another 9mm of poke
  6. will not recommend re003's for stretching 225 onto a 9inch rim. probably something like falken fk452/453 will do the trick
  7. 18x8.5 ET13 with 215 35 18 tyres with camber, rolled guards and probably adjustable (stiff) suspension. #stancelife
  8. i can say that you will find it VERY difficult to fit 18x8.5 ET13 on an E46. I am currently running 18x8.5 ET22 with 225 front 235 rear and it rubs. If it fit the E46 I would have bought it already... I really miss my BBS RC with ET38 offset I had on my old E46..

  10. There is nothing wrong with the VIN number itself, some of them just dont have info available. The confusion is the vin decode literally decodes the vin number telling you basic information. (see photo) The options list/build sheet is information on a database and unfortuantely this one's buildsheet must be missing from said database. Physically checking the VIN will just get you the same number that is recorded on carjam.
  11. The joys of passing on a car to a fellow member!
  12. this thing is a beaut! very glad it went to someone whos going to enjoy it probably the most!
  13. https://www.trademe.co.nz/motors/car-parts-accessories/bmw/other/auction-1474203314.htm some 14" weaves on this parts car
  14. This is awesome!! My only complaint is it would be nice if you shot those wall photos with a slightly higher aperture so the whole car was in full focus not blurred out. AND HEY where is the boot BMW emblem??
  15. 65mm diameter Looks like it fits 15" style 5 weaves? https://www.ecstuning.com/b-genuine-bmw-parts/center-cap/36131179828/ https://www.eeuroparts.com/Parts/29503/Wheel-Center-Cap-w-Emblem-36131179828/
