Just washed my car and the girlfriends car
 
Whats going on guys! So the weather has been really crappy lately so there has been alot of salts on the roads. This morning it was only about 38 so my girlfriend and I got up early before work to clean our cars so I figured I would share the photos with you! Enjoy!

Here are some pictures the day before when I washed it...

After washing the car a few days ago I still managed to get some salt on the back bumper and the bottom part of the car so here are the photos I snapped of our cars this morning! Enjoy!

Yes another e39 ! Looks great. IMO to achieve the "perfect" stance you need spacers. Id say a 15mm front and 10mm rear. At your height you'd have to roll the rear fenders and/or raise it up slightly. Im a big fan of this car from bf.c

Thanks a lot man! Yeah I think I will try adding some spacers in the future. The last time I had spacers on the car, the rear passenger wheel came off the car while I was driving :/

Thanks guys!

Yeah I plan on raising it a bit, it's kind of annoying when you see a speed bumper and you have to stop and then find another way around

Aww man that sounds rough. Its possible the bolts weren't long enough to clear the spacer and secure itself in the hub. I bought mine from ECS tuning and the quality is amazing. I havent had an issue with driveability one bit and was even able to get the car aligned with them properly.

I hear you with dodging the potholes but its the life we've chose. The low life..:str8pimpi

DNYFinest, the issue was the center bore of the wheels I bought were 72.6 and my hub is 74.1 so ordered a set of H&R Adapters that convert the center hub from 74.1 to 72.6. Once I did that I wanted to have it sit more flush so I added another spacer but the lug bolt was too long. It bottomed out and I wasn't aware. (Dont mind the wheels, they were supposed to be temporary untill I could afford CCW Classics)

Here is a picture of the fitment of the wheels with spacers and adapters.

This is the end result.

Luckily once it happened, my rotor was still okay and the only thing that got messed up was the rear bumper popped out of a place and I was able to fix it right then and there.

Once this happened, I decided to take off all spacers and wheel adapters and just put the oem wheels back on. While the shop had my car I went ahead and had them replace the rear with 2 brand new tires (fronts had already been replaced). I picked up my car around 5pm on a Saturday during my lunch break and drove it back to work. That Sunday morning one of my brand new rear tires went completely flat (luckily not on the bay bridge which is about 4.2 miles long) right after the bridge.

I ended up having the car towed back across the bridge to the shop that replaced the tire. They took care of the towing which was nice and said they would try to get the tire company to pay for it as it may have been a defect. I ended up having to pay for ANOTHER new tire but they only charged me cost. Ever since that has happened I've been so iffy about wheel spacers

Sofresh2Clean 02-09-2013 03:23 PM

Nice looking girl ! I understand your spacer situation now but you do know they have the hub adapters in various mm lengths such as 15, 20 and 25 ect? After seeing what happened with you I think I'll stick with e39 wheels lol... and in my previos responses I want to clarify that I didnt mean to say your car "needs" spacers in a rude way ( I was just reading it over and I think it sounded at bit out of place) I was making a suggestion based on my preferences. Your car is actually one of the nicest e39 m5s ive seen. Everything is well executed and clean. I hope you stay on this forum more often its getting a little lonely being an e39er here lol..

rcsummers 02-09-2013 03:40 PM

talk about bad luck.


Great looking cars though!

floydlloyd85 02-09-2013 03:47 PM

Jeez your car is really nice lad. And the girl. Well done.

J.Khlok 02-09-2013 08:43 PM
