    740i - Seems a lot of car for the money.

    Style 49's on SE

    My fave 17" wheel. And along with the Style 66s the only wheel that fits over M5 discs.

    SuperDave RIP

    RIP Dave, you clearly loved cars and were a fair person.
  10. True, especially the LCI, although I still feel the e39 is better quality inside.
  11. I think they're great, but they ain't no 3 Series. Two months ago I bought a R75 CDTi as a runaround whilst my 520d was having its heart transplant. It was the first non BMW I had owned since 2005. Came with some nice kit and looked the part on 17" Serpent alloys. The interior had not worn well, - rips in the seats, seat backs loose, door pull surrounds falling off, roof light fittings falling off because the clips had broke, a tweeter had failed, mirror switch pack had failed although it was an easy fix..and it was a one owner car. Reminded me that the BMW build quality we all admire is actually a thing, it's true. I've also got an older e36 316i and the interior has no issues.
  12. Retrofitted Logic 7 tweeters and woofers without the amp and the sound was definitely better but they are not very well made, the front woofers couldn't cope with high bass and the lower paper filter came away from its base and makes a horrid crackling sound. Dunno if it's because they are designed to be used with amp only, but have swapped them out for blue stickered BMW Business woofers which have been fine.

  14. Love you mate, great memories of the forum from when I joined in 2009 to when I stopped having spare time to mess with BMWs circa 2017, keep in touch on FB!
