    Kit's E34 535i

    the spigots arent load bearing so plastic does the job... they only center the wheel perfectly .. have always used plastic on BMW and aftermarket wheels

    Wrong size rear wheels !!

    i had staggered 66s on my tourng ..didnt see any advantage or difference in looks. the different tyre szes are a pain so went for a square set up of 8"...much easier

    Cost to paint one side of an E34?

    dont blend in to the midille or top of c pillar tho . so many people do this .. for all the effort to mask off you can get wing, 2 doors , rear quarter and the first part of roof taking in the A pillar.. do whole side and put a soft foam edge on the fiat swedge line that runs the legth of the roof .. looks so much better

    E39 Touring ebay

    Cream interiors are just awful i think in cars, its like Lotus white leather they used to put in E34s.. first think i took out if i got one with it .. i have cream in my Volvo and its all coming out .. huge job to change but worth it .. big money for that touring too given the choice out there but hey if they make that then good job:)

    Another big fast estate :)

    200000 ( i think they come as standard with at least 150000 as i havent seen less lol ) The S70 has given up its wheels , front bumper and i am half way thru swapping out the beige in the V70 for a full black leather get up .. to be honest if i thought there was that much work adn so much to change i wouldnt have but its getting there .. the full dashboard is a pig to get out . Also the V70 had some dents / scarpes etc so i put 2 wings a bonnet and two back doors in same colour so it looks pretty now
