Between 2 sets at the moment, the BBS 2 piece Style 108's 8Jx18 ET47 and 8,5Jx18 ET50 with H&R 12mm spacers and bolts all round.
Or the white powdercoated CSL reps 8Jx18 ET35 and 9Jx18 ET35, no spacers.

Hello

Thought I might share my touring. After 3 years I finally got rid of the 320 sedan, can't even understand why I bought it in first place, 4 doors and no room in the boot, useless piece of crap . Anyway, it went from



To




This is a 330xi, first winter with 4wd is going to be interesting just a 5 speed, really missing the sixth gear but hey you can't get everything at least it's a manual. Bought it as a project, it's throwing some fault codes, some already sorted out.
What's going to happen to it styling wise I haven't decided yet but of course a Mtech front bumper and those 19" wheels have to go, ugly as hell.

Nice wagon!

Red is growing on me, so much that I'm picking up a red 325xit wagon tomorrow! Fully loaded manual 5 speed with sport package.

I had a black one last year and miss it and also don't want to use my E92 M3 this winter.

I'll post pics when I get it.

Gizmo318i - Sorry but I'm just not feeling the white CSLs but it looks great with the BBS wheels.

German_BMW_E46 - Car looks badass Stop posting pics with the Style 5s. You are going to make me buy wheels for my E39 so I can steal the Style 5s for my E46. Lol

Visor328i - I've owned my Hellrot for over 2 years now and I still am not 100% sold on the color. I really wish my car was Imola.

Well this is not really showroom pics but more in it's working environment. Delete if it's to much of.
My touring was missing a hitch + I'm seriously tired of borrowing cars every time I need to get something moved so easiest solution is to go and get one and install it.


After that it's time to put it to test. Worked fine and no problem getting the boat up from the water.


About the boat, it's of course also running with an BMW m50 engine

Had a look at the ratings for towing. Technically highest rating I can tow is 4850lbs
Legally with braked trailer is 3970lbs and even that is more than enough
Third hitch I installed on an e46, Bosal, Westfalia and this that's from Thule,, just minor difference between them and the install is down to about an hour. Really easy work compared to say, Corolla and some Focus I have done, best thing is that you just have to do that small cut in the bumper, everything else is preprepared.

I went with the Westfalia/OEM




I love that I cannot see any part of it with the diffuser on

Had Westfalia on the sedan and had to cut the bumper on that to. But it wasn't even a removable hitch, with a price difference of almost $350 I just couldn't justify it. + I can't say a tow hitch is ugly and it's a big price jump when you sell the car if it has a hitch.
Thule is not removable either but I think I have a $2 solution to make it in my head. Have to see if it works
