few quick questions:
1 anyone run squared 245/40/19s on an AWD platform, and what offset works
2 Anyone put a tow hitch on their wagon? I would like to be able to carry my 4 bikes and MAYBE tow a very light trailer with 1 motorcycle on it
3 Any aftermarket cupholders?

Thanks
Looking forward to getting the wagon just right. Here are my plans:
1 LED angel eye upgrade
2 COBB tuner
3 19" mesh wheels
4 hitch
5 M5 front bumper
6 rear diffuser
7 DONE

hoping to get all this done by next spring. I'll probably get it re-clearcoated when the bumper gets painted.
If you need help with attaining your plans please let us know, we are glad to help.

I think I settled on an E60...I like the look of them better and I feel more comfortable with a NA motor. If I had the turbo, that would lead to modding it.
How is it working. I'm considering a 550 e60 to replace my n54 e90. Do u miss the torque of turbos?

2004 545i

Just picked up a 2004 545i , it has some issues, but got it at a steal. Can any indy shop do the clutch, I have a good general mechanic that works on my old cars. BMW's are a whole different ballgame to me

Hello.

I am from Australia and I drive a 06 530d. I like the diesel because it is quite economical.

I drove 1000kms from Sydney, NSW to Brisbane, Queensland in 1 full tank!

Hey all - I'm a lurker for now, my daily is a 2008 Mazda Miata GT with the power roof hard top - and basically came to the conclusion its impractical for daily useage.

So, currently trying to decide on a E91 w/sport package, or an E61 touring with the sport package (though I seem to only find it in the XI )

new to the world of bimmers

hello guys and gals. just sharing some photos of the new bimmer i bought(i know they aren't the best). i wanted to introduce myself and the car; its a 09 bmw 535i manual transmission and i'm from south texas. i would like if you all can direct me to good links or aftermarket site for parts; mainly looking to lower the car, intake change, swap the exhaust, and maybe change the diverter valves out and boost gauge, oh yeah- plus a tune.

my only question right now is: how do i know if i bought a twin turbo engine(i've been told some later models come with one turbo; not sure how true that is)
