they were purple before the blk/wht combo but

yeah the rear bumper area is a pain, i took off the little bracket holding the bumper on, doesnt make too much difference to be honest, well the fact mine was broken from scrubbing didnt help, but makes the rubbing more bearable now, as it does slice the tyre, just lightly rubs it

Great read and great pics! Saw pics of a mate who's just put them on his touring and yet to lower it. Are there any additional issues fitting them to a 4dr you think?

LOL! I had a passat B5 with 8.5x 17 ET18Fr and 10 x 17 ET17 Rr on it. That had P O K E !

Ive decided to put the 19s on hold for now. Picking the car up at the weekend and it needs a few bits doing to it, so Ill sort them first. Ive actually bought a set of OEM 18s as I hate the std MV1s.

Nice to see another person trying different things with the X5 wheels. I did 215/35/19 front and 235/35/19 rear.

Sorry to dig up a old post!

Am in the process of putting X5 rims on my e46. Would you be able to tell me what spacers you ended up using for the front and rear?

Tyres?

At the moment it has the standard msport suspension? do I need to modified it? Also The rear Arches? Can they be outer lip be rolled? or does it need to be pulled or flared out?

Sorry for the million and one questions.
