nijs75m, that looks more comfortable than driving a mini van or SUV. Just be careful when you drive into a garage.

OK, finally , here's mine. Had her since March 2012. I've only done a few things with plans for coilover set up and maybe exhaust next. I like sedans and coupes but touring's are so much more appealing to me. Hope you guys like

They're Volks TE37 replicas. Though they're still a little different from real TE37 cuz real ones dont have the 90 degree bend. I didnt care cuz though I like the CSL style wheels, it was just a little too common on Bimmers for me. Ive seen a few M3's with TE37 and liked them. I haven't come across a touring yet with these wheels but im sure theyre out there. Specs are 19x8.5 with 235/35/19 front and rear is 19x9.5 265/30/19. Sorry I dont remember the offset but they sit well flush.

Awesome... I've been researching wheels for my 03 and was considering the 710's by VMR but Im really surprised by how much I like these rims on the touring.... they are different with a nice aggressive feel. 19's havent been an issue? Rubbing etc? Thnks for posting those pics.. n sending over the specs.

Thanks, well aprreciated 330i ZHP. @ IconAlexander, I was considering VMR. Very nice wheels. But it was the issue of too many Bimmers with that style. One member here (sorry forgot your username) has the Work Gnosis GS-1 which I think look absolutely fantastic on a touring. Also the Hartge Classic looks great. But for now I went with something that's not as pricey as I do plan to pick up a set of the Work wheels when I become rich one day (LOL). Kind of liked going with a JDM wheel on a German car. I know a lot of Bimmer guys would frown on that but, whatever I don't care. I still like how they look. The wheels are sitting really flush. I only rub a little bit in the back. It's in the corner where the bumpers edge meets the body. It'll rub just a little bit when I hit hard dips in the road and mainly on the right rear. Then I got more rubbing on both sides when I had 2 passengers in the back, a passenger in front, and the cargo area with some duffle bags. I know it's gonna be a different story when I put on coilovers

Love those wheels Bro. Refreshing from the CSLs that everyone and their Grandmas have.

That sucks. I hope you get things resolved. FWIW, I have the BMW Visa Card and they really suck azz when it comes to resolving these kinds of things. I used to use it for everything to get points and a healthy BMW rewards check every year. However since I had bad experience in disputing one of the charges before, I mainly use my Amex now to get the reward points and they cut you a check for cash, not to mention a variable points system for various items like gas, food, and merchandise.

it is interesting that you say that - it is the BMW visa card and they have yet to send the affidavits they claimed needed to be filled out, signed and notorized.

the sportster CSs are here, just waiting on the custom brackets and the Recaro sliders (I opted for the height control and they didnt have them in the country)

That's really nice. I like the ride height and blacked out window trim. What engine do you have?
