Thanks. They are Hamann HM2s and I believe they do fit, you will have much better luck in the US finding them.

I know these stupid laws, but a fitted spacer with BMW performance logo will pass. Impossible to distinguish between the hub and wheel. If inspection, just remove them and put it back. I lived in a country with the same insurance regulations.

Just a standard exhaust with early model catless factory header, with a Remus dual square tip back box.

To finish off the car was sold on the 19th of June. Quoted is the FS post.

It has gone to another Fanatic hope he will enjoy it as much as I had.

Now I have moved onto an M3, it'll be another and new direction this time. -read: sleeper
