I'm at 214000 mi. I've done quite a bit of work. All myself. On jacks. Be prepared. I have had it for two years and have done more than I wanted to. I'm now at a car I'll keep dumping money into. The return if sold wouldn't be worth it and off probably a few grand. But wife loves it it's bitter sweet for me. Haven't drove /owned anything like it.

whoa, i hope to make that mileage someday. I agree that you can spend a lot of time working on one of these. Took me 2 years to really make mine reliable. I recorded all of my maintenance: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/attachm...3&d=1374253132.

^ A common designation for that factory wheel is LM. "LM reps" refers to reproductions. Lots-o-these to be found in variations of the "mesh" pattern.

Looks like Weez has passed on her and left the party? Lowered for sure with 18-19's?

I think you guys scared him back to Toyota land?

Honda land, ... (same dif)

I assume this is the car he was looking at:

I've been wanting a XiT 5 speed too, but I'm not wild about silver (not really in a position to buy anyway), but those wheels make the car look great. Throw on an M bumper...

I was trying to figure out what the wheels were too, I think they're one of these. If so, then that would make em 19s:

^ yeah, heard 'em called CSL style too. Several quality reproductions out there. The factory ones are $$$ and M3 wheels don't fit our cars.

Edit: here's some replicas: http://www.modbargains.com/bmw-csl-s...nd-m3-cars.htm

My Ride: 02 325xi Wagon 5 Spd
Speaking of 325xi Touring 5 Speeds, I currently have one I'm selling here in New England. I've driven it most of the summer and hate to sell, but it's my 4th vehicle and I've promised to restore my wife's Range Rover Classic. 2 owner, full dealership service history - Ebay listing is below if you'd like to check it out...
