Can't speak for Rob, but I don't like the look of toe taps, some of my shoes and boots look like Rob's as well. I'll just resole when the time comes.

what do you mean by "the look"? you can't see them while the pair is being worn and for someone who is hard on their toes (like me, for instance) it prevents the need for premature resoling. who cares about the look when you're adding literally years to the life of your shoes.

I'm not here to argue, Mr. BMW. I am just stating my two cents. By the look, I mean the noticeable metal piece hugging the sole in the toe area when your shoes are up. This is the same reason I don't like to add a thin piece of rubber onto leather sole. Yes, they preserve the life of the sole, but not my cup of tea. When it comes to resole then so be it.

Dude! You're back! His screen name: Imola red is a color BMW offers. Zhp is the code for sports package. And I'm guessing the Ci is the car he has, used on the older models like E46 3 Series. I had an E90 335i back in 2007 smile.gif so I kinda know the lingo.

Haha. Impressive, wj4. I'll have to take your word for it.

I just got a pair of shoes with flush metal taps. Not sure how I feel about them just yet. Likely another one of those things that will fall into the category of 'do with your shoes as you will."

NYI's fits looking good as usual.

I went to college in NH with Pete Nash's little brother. He used to visit all the time. We were all star struck. It was the late 80's early 90's after all. I haven't heard 3rd bass in years. Off to YouTube...

damn, that's some serious car nerdery. I got like "hp" was probably something and "ci" is the old coupe designation but was lost on the rest.

 

I had a 528e also known as the slowest BMW ever built. Thing was bulletproof, though. Loved that car.

Agreed. Have recently added taps to all my leather-soled shoes.

I have some Vass coming with the sunken metal tap.

Also, you can get a sunken rubber tap added as well.

I have ordered the button-down shirts from the recent factory find. I ordered them in small but am thinking that I should change to a medium. This is my first shirt purchase with Epaulet so I am not familiar with the sizing. My chest measurement is 38.5 and shoulder is about 17.5. If this helps, I am about 155lbs and 5'8". Based on the measurement chart on Epaulet website, this should be a no brainer that I should switch to medium, right? because small will be too tight on the chest. Thanks, K.



Your measurements is almost just like mine. I'm 5'9, 155 lbs, 39" chest and 17.5 shoulder. I found medium Epaulet shirts to be wearable but a bit tight in the chest, while size large feels comfortable and still look pretty fitted. So I've sold off most of my mediums and buy large exclusively now. I think medium should work for you but small likely would not.

Cheer.

I'm not a toe tap fan, don't like the feel of them to be honest...I've some, and they always catch on the stairs when I walk up...falling in front of 30 13 year olds is not pleasant. Yes, it has happened.

As long as we're in car nerd mode...

ZSP was the normal sport package code.

ZHP was the performance package code. It was mostly notable because you could get Imola Red which until then was an M exclusive color at least in the US.
You also got 10 hp more than a standard 330 and a lower final drive ratio. You could get it on a sedan and guys who got the ZHP liked to pretend that they got it because there was no E46 M3 sedan.
