Re: Yet another "will they fit" wheel thread

Hi John,
Thanks, but as I said in the original post mine is an E82. Love the look of the VMR's though!

Re: Yet another "will they fit" wheel thread

Cheers for the pictures, they do look good! - Mine is Le Mans Blue too so saved having to flaff around on photoshop :D I was keen on the Ispiri wheels mainly because they have a Black Friday deal on them currently meaning they were priced around the £600 mark, but would happily choose another brand ...

You won't have any rim protection though, so watch those kerbs!
After a nasty meeting with a curb in my previous clio sport, which resulted in not only a new alloy but also front shock, the more rubber protection I can have the better...

Re: Yet another "will they fit" wheel thread

Thanks for such a quick response guys :)

Reading your suggestions above, am I right in understanding that 8.5 ET35 at the front and 9.5 ET45 rears are my best bet?
I really don't want to go down the route of stretching tyres, that whole euro mod thing is definitely not my scene!

Yet another "will they fit" wheel thread

Apologies, but having searched and read a few posts on the forum, I'm now more confused about wheel sizes than I was before! :? I'm looking at buying some Ispiri ISR10 Wheels for my E82 and appear to have the following fitment choices: 19" x8.5, offset 35 or 15 (all round) - OR - as above at the fro...

'57 123d - Swirl Flaps! Should I be worried?

I have just bought a 123d which was manufactured at the end of 2007. The previous owner has always taken it to the main BMW dealer for serivcing but it has had a hard life and managed to rack up 170k miles! Should I see about getting the swirl flaps removed? From what i have read on this forum and 1...

Re: M3 LCA'S on Amazon ???

23 and 24 give you stiffer bushes - more noise, vibration and harshness though. 26 and 27 give you the additional track width and negative camber. You can fit either pair separately, or both sets. Thanks for the reply! Reading the above it sounds like 23 & 24 are more performance focused than I'm a...

Re: M3 LCA'S on Amazon ???

Is it necessary to buy all 4; JTC1423, JTC1424, JTC1426 & JTC1427 or are just '26 & '27 sufficient?
Cheers

Just to confirm these are the rounded style gloss black grills, if your car has the pointed grills fitted currently you would need the pointed style.
Good question... I have no idea i'm afraid :? The registration is WM57EKE if that helps?

Re: B12 kit on M Sport LCI with proper tyres: a definite upgrade?

Sorry for the very noob question, but is this the B12 Pro or Sportline kit? - I have a '57 E82 with MSport package that I would like to improve the handling on and am very tempted by the good things that have been said about the Bilsteins B12 kit is the B8 dampers with either Pro-kit springs or Spo...

Re: B12 kit - What else at the same time?

I don't know about the rest of the bushes, but for the sub-frame bushes you essentially have 3 options. Subframe inserts, Poweflex (or similar) replacement bushes or m3 replacement bushes...... Thanks for such a detailed and helpful reply! I followed your advice and went just for the inserts in the...
