"125xxx I performed the rebuild myself I don't like other people doing my work don't really trust others about 7,000 since rebuild the suspension is in great condition new m3 bushings and lowering springs the flywheel and clutch are stock they were in great shape so I didn't replace them but I'm actually thinking about putting in a new clutch very soon.the clutch is still in great shape but the throw out bearing is starting to make noise so that's on my list it has dinan chip k&n filter also with exhaust (quiet) no rust on shock towers shocks are great also new ball joints alignment control arms it also has every alpina badge and looks.....last time i checked guibo looked ok (8months ago)...brakes and wheel bearings are good the only wiring issue I've noticed is the temp gauge likes to jump and move back n forth if you tap on the speedo it jumps around its a common problem"

Sounds pretty good to me. If my car gets totaled, I'll see about getting a PPI on that car. It would be sweet to buy back my car, pull the motor and drop her into the E30, but I'd take the car as is.

Only thing I have to figure out is how I'm going to manage securing a loan on it. :\ Anyone have any tips?
I'll start filling my bath tub with ice, you only need 1 kidney man!

Hahaha, yeah... After doing some research yesterday, looks like just a pipe dream. I don't have the cash on hand and no way I'm gunna get a loan. I guess I'm gunna buy a cheap car for around 8-10k and take my cheap payments. Assuming my car is totaled. If not I'll still have my baby.

Who cares what you end up with, we will make it fast. Big thanks on doing what you did during those runs. I was way too nervous to make it all happen on my own!

Seriously though. In StL. Looking to buy 17" wheels and tires. You can have the 18"s! I'm getting old and I need a softer ride.... Should've just bought an old Buick LeSabre!

Which set do you want?

First set are F10 sport wheels.

Seconds are from an X5.

The last set of 5 spokes, also from an X5, have tires, but they are shot.

All are 17's.

I have 16s if interested. I'm wanting to go to 18s. Can we get some pics of the 18s.

Randy I might have to talk to you about that 1st set of 17s you posted there or maybe the 18s if you make a swap.

Got rear ended at a stoplight today. No noticeable damage, except a couple very minor scuff marks. Was freaked for a second since my license isn't straight yet from the DWI. I let it go and told the lady no harm no foul.

Just thought I'd share the close call with you guys.

Hey buddy thanks. Wasn't feeling any of them but appreciate it.
I finally gave up and just ordered new wheels and tires from tirerack.com. I really wish I didn't get rid of the Fikse's back in the day, those wheels were the best!

Heads up for anyone looking for 18's. Got a set of 18"x8 BBS LM reps with 2 like new Toyo Proxes4 tires for sale soon. They look good and I believe they weigh in at 22 lbs each. Pic below.
