    I have a mint set of 15” BMW BBS alloys from my E34 . They were fully refurbished a couple of mths ago and are unmarked . They are shod in decent 225 60 15 tyres I am trying to downsize the amount of wheels I have so just seeing if any interest in these Basically for sale at cost of refurbishing your own with advantage of tyres already fitted so have these for show an put winters tyres on your others J £250 .. collection would be in Dunfermline or Paisley Freight can courier them to you at cost
  8. I am thinking of buying an X5 ( budget up to £5000)… need an estate type 4x4 auto for a couple of trips to Holland and up north over next few months Anyone got experience of one , how do they fair body wise ( do they rot like E39s ? ) , engine gearbox wise I am OK , but have I read they suffer rear suspension issues or are they much the same again as an E39 .. air bags etc are OK as they are an easy fix if any issues but arm, bushes , etc .. any info Finally engines .. I have 530D E39 .. it goes great but is that because it’s a manual .. do auto 3.0ds perform OK Not adverse to petrol variants tho even if it’s a 4.4 or 4.6 ( not sure a 4.6 would be in that rice bracket tho .. not checked that ) Any info appreciated

    Genuine E39 18" Staggered Parallels

    A bit of wheel cleaner and show them in better nick is your way forward .. a half hours work if you can do it or get someone to do it would go a long way .. they look rough as they stand just now
