Cars We Drive! - Page 585
'Rims' is simply slang -- nothing more or less, and it thus carries all the usual slang caveats. And like all slang, it's not accurate. You like this particular piece of slang, I get it. That's fine, as long as the distinctions don't disappear.
Your contention that a bunch of guys don't use precise language when they talk about cars is ridiculous -- misstate the type/size of engine in a car and see how far that gets you. As for doucheyness, I recall pointing out the distinction, but not saying or implying anything negative about anyone who used the term. I don't think you can make the same claim.
Just yanking your chain. My font looks mean but I have a friendly keyboard
I got myself a new used BMW as well. This was owned by retired people with a mecanician son. It has 85k miles/137k km on the odometer and everything is stock except the thing that regulates the amount of gas getting into the engine.
At first I wanted an E34, but I couldn't find one that was flawless and with low mileage, so I will keep looking.
In the meantime, I will have to get new wheels as well and get replacement interior trim so I can paint them or wrap them in vinyl, because those wood trim make me feel like Im driving grandpa's car.
Nice find. Find some wheels from a M5 or a 540 sport and call it a day.
I thought I was the only person who didn't like wood in cars. Cheers
I've taken a liking to VMR wheels. I cant speak for quality but they've got a growing base with bmw/audi fanbois.
