Well they are done. And am happy with the colour. Not top job but was only a quick rub down and paint. New front tyres to match the rears also fitted. No stretch now. Love the shine when the sun hits them.

How do you find them sunny tyres ? i had a set on an e36 many moons ago now and they were absolutely lethal the second a drop of rain fell all grip was gone i eventually had to bin them with around 7mm of thread left as they were just too dangerous like driving on ice

Lol. Not had any problems at all. But yet again it hardly goes any ware. These will probably outlive the car.

I bought another set of genuine m5 wheels. Then sold the four fronts as a set on ebay. Then repainted all the wheels together and fitted the same size tyres all round.

Replacement mirror casing turned up to get rid of the repaired one. Just got to paint it now. But for 30 notes for a genuine AC item then I'm not complaining

Nothing new to report. It's winter and it came out the garage once. And it was raining so not best pleased.

Cheers yep still on the same coilovers. Been really good. A little soft on the rear. But probably a uprated anti roll bar could help there.
