    F10 LCI 530d MSport.F15 X5, E46M3
  1. Swopped 2017 RFT's for Goodyear Eagle F1 A3's

    Thanks.. Yes you are right, I dont think any of them actually protect the rim....however I like to look of the rim protector rather than a straight sidewall.....
  2. Swopped 2017 RFT's for Goodyear Eagle F1 A3's

    What type of sidewall profile are on the F1 A3s - is there a rim protector type sidewall? Thanks !
  3. Anyone fitted these to an LCI F10

    Thanks Matthew. Did a search and found a few results. Aside from part nos. there actually is a difference in the caliper designs used and the OEM M5 wheel just about fits with the caliper with curved profile next the wheel - hence my concern.
  4. Hi Has anyone successfully fitted these 20" Avant Garde M355 to an LCI F10 MSport ? Specifically the LCI I believe has a different front caliper design without the curved shape.....If so what tyre sizes 285/245 etc? Thanks
  5. Eibach Sportline Springs 45/40mm for BMW F10

    @Oinkster, Car looks great. What wheels are they - are they OEM M5 wheels or something else? Did you have any clearance issues with front caliper? Is yous LCI - I believe the Pre LCI caliper is ok which has a curved shape that clears the wheel but the LCI caliper doesn't have the curve shape which I think would be problematic. Also what front brake disc and caliper are you running? Thanks
  6. Birds Quaife LSD to F10530d

    Thinking of a Quaife LSD for the F10 530d as fitted by Birds. Wondering if anyone has had this mod done ?
  7. Automatic lights.

    same as this .....LCI F10
  8. Got rid of the Runflats

    Which Goodyears, Pirellis etc do you know.? What non RFT have folks found to be good grip/wear compromise and a nice sidewall rim protector??? My PZero RFTS which I will be getting rid of have a nice pronounced sidewall rim protector. They don't protect the rims as we know but its a nice looking sideway which I'd like to retain on the Non RFT
  9. Got rid of the Runflats

    Agree with this. I think the stiffer sidewall means that theres less 'give' and when thread is lower they break away easier
  10. 100k mileage not far off....

    absolutely gorgeous, wheels and car. Badly need an E39M5 if anyone knows of a low mile facelift for sale in Carbon Black !
  11. Dakar Yellow RHD E39 M5 - For Sale on Ebay

    Terrible E39M5 colour in my humble opinion- however each to their own....

    Remove a drop of oil ( careful if hot) and check the level accurately with dipstick also. I marginally overfilled when I did an oil change - easy to do...
  13. OEM M5 wheels on LCI F10 530d

    Thanks very much. That looks great. Now heres my worry- its not the body pre/post LCI - Its the front caliper design. When I get a chance I'll check on real OEM but see your front caliper is a snug fit next the spokes and the caliper is curved/relieved to allow the spoke to clear. My caliper is more of a straight block without that curve . Hence my LCI question.
  14. OEM M5 wheels on LCI F10 530d

    Bigshout, is your car LCI. Looks like its petrol? Just trying to figure out what front caliper its got and ifs the same as the LCI 530d? Thanks
  15. OEM M5 wheels on LCI F10 530d

    Thanks Matthew and Bigshout @Bigshout, do you mean 343m ( vs 334m) and also you mean 285 rear and 245/55 FRONT? Thanks !
