    205 on 8" wheel

    205/45/16. Not stretched much really

    Wheel Refubs - £20 pounds! YES TWENTY POUNDS!

    They must process a huge amount of wheels to be able to do them that cheap... Great find though I wonder if they post wheels?

    Creating a website

    Your best bet is just getting a Wordpress website. there so many free templates or even if you want one designing its not much. That will give you a fully content managed site that'd take ages to write from scratch. I worked as a web developer for many years and this is by far the easiest and IMO best way to get a website up and running. Look for a host that has a one click install for Wordpress. I've actually been setting up one today for a friend. I used pixelinternet.co.uk. Can't argue at those prices! I wouldn't bother learning any code other than basic HTML and CSS.

    Hello from Bedford!

    thanks for the welcome it is a 525i, but as it's early has the m20 engine. the throttle response is very poor and seems to use a fair bit of juice, but as i do 5000 miles/year not really a problem

    Hello from Bedford!

    Hi, i'm matt I had an e28 a few years ago and loved it! Unfortunately it needed a lot of work, so I passed it on to someone else... Fastforward a couple of years and I know have this as my daily car... ...which I picked up for just £240 However, it needed a lot of work. I replaced the upper arms, lower arms, tie rods, drop links, which improved things no end. There's many more things wrong with it, but I need to do a little research first!
