    Genuine Hartge (OZ) Alloy wheels 17x8.5 ET13

    Sold for the asking
  2. I persuaded another forum member to sell me these wheels as they are one of my E28 favourites and I had been looking around for ages for a set to come up. Anyway we struck a deal and although not essential, I had them powder coated in BMW silver and fitted new Hartge centre badges to freshen them up. I then put them on the car and it looked lovely, however not as lovely to my eyes as it looks on the Borbet Bs and they have since sat in my garage gathering dust. They have the proper centre cap key and fit perfectly on the E28 with a really nice dish, much better than the much more common 16 inch variety and the come with correct centre cap key. They really deserve to adorn an un-kitted E28 or an E34 which would look fantastic, sadly they won’t fit on my E39, E46 or the E36 M3 so with some reluctance I am prepared to let them go if anyone here wants them. I would buy a car to put them on however this is slightly impractical I can pm individual pics etc if anyone is interested. £1200 Socially distanced collection possible. Located in Ashford in Kent.

    Lol Si I've re-thought the price and figured out due to the vast selection of cheaper ones available I'll leave it as is

    Innovadrive NXG-39 / OEM look Double DIN Fascia

    Finally got this unit installed in my recently acquired 530i Touring...BMW count now up to 4 lol It's nice quality and looks like it belongs in the car so I am really happy. Even I managed to install it so it must be simple I do keep trying to adjust the volume with the fake "knob" though lol Thankfully I have bought a kit that allows for the steering wheel volume up/down and track/station skip to work (and it worked first time amazingly) Thanks to Dennis for the prompt service

    Everyone with a e28 put your pics up :D

    It was just a reflection, I was moving around my garage space and one of my spare set reflected nicely in the headlights

    Currently taking mine apart and cleaning things that have been annoying me After taking this picture I noticed my "Hartge" light was smashed by a stone so another job to add to the list !

    1986 E28 M535i - Restoration

    Loving what you are doing Ian. I had a chat with Piers about his M30 work and he was very happy with Lester Owen and Alunox. Those guys really do nice work.

    Tracking down my old e28

    No, probably not Ivor. It was based on those who made contact and some that I knew of already, the previous incumbent had nothing to pass on and it's far from extensive ! But any details are welcome, drop me an email mate. I have model, exterior and interior colour, chassis number, reg number, owner and some notes on them.

    Tracking down my old e28

    Hi Rich, I may be able to help as I look after the register for the car club, but would need a little more info. Reg no, chassis no etc would help. Cheers, Mark

    Who is that man with the camera ?

    Nice one Pete Wow that is a blast from the past. My car in the pic is the E39 Touring YE51 MGO. The M535i is a black automatic that Oxo was hoping to buy once if I recall correctly !

    sorry to be going

    Sad times mate. Have you sold it to someone local ?

    What have you done on your E28 this week........

    Thanks Yes I had been driving past that road a few times and thought it would be good for a piccy ! These will be a lot easier to clean

    What have you done on your E28 this week........

    So tried these 17" Hartge rims on for size this week. I have had them for a while but not got around to trying them on the car, they were always one of my favourite rims. But I still think the Borbets edge it

    M535 values ?

    Hi, they are tricky to value as always. Nothing but scrap these days under 4k. Poorer examples seem to start around 5K. Good cars 8-12k and excellent up to around 15-18k. There are a few chancing their arm at higher figures but none seem to sell. As an example (albeit an odd one) a low mileage car (40k I think) sold at auction for around 23k last year and that needed paintwork doing.

    Beige interior. Convince me!

    That looks great with the black carpet etc Paddy. That's a bit like what I did with the M535i, black carpets trims and dash with light seats. I like the contrast Not sure I would have gone beige if it was my daily driver though ! Topaz with Beige should look nice if it's in decent condition.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    That was around town to be fair, but it did like a drink

    I was invited to go to Bicester but there is really good meet on my doorstep the same day.

    Buying an X5 - any advice if you own/ owned one?

    I had a 2004 4.4 Sport and I loved it. Only sold it due to needing a seven seater, as said they drive very much like a raised E39, fuel consumption was around 19mpg if you drove like the clergy but it was a superb mile muncher.
