1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    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 was indeed thinking M5 wheels or Alpina. I am keeping an eye on ebay and classified around where I live. Some shadowline door and bumper trim would be nice as well, I'll keep the window chrome. My neighbourhood is mostly Turkish and Bulgarian/Russian, there's like 8 E39 in my street!

    Looks alright here:

    VMR are supposed to be one of the higher quality replica wheels out there...I think their big seller is the replica CSL patterned after the m3 CSL

    Those wheels are too damned big for the E30. 15s and maybe 16s are the biggest any E30 should use. Anything bigger just looks stupid. What works better for the E30 are really wide tires along with rolled fenders.

    Agreed. I'm also of the opinion that old wheels and especially BBS RS, Schnitzer, Hartge, Ronal, Alpina... are the only good looking wheels on < 1990 BMWs.

    I agree those are to big for that car just sharing a brand that makes a nice wheel, although I think 18 is the smallest they make

    Either Ferrari has the most permissive traction control ever, or this guy is an idiot for driving a new, very powerful sports car off the lot with new tires and turning the TC off in the rain.

    My friend just took delivery of a 2013 SL550 hardtop convertible. He let me take it for a spin and man does that thing fly. Has the new MB twin turbo V-8, the 4Matic...just stomp on the gas and you're running 0-60 in about 4 seconds flat Nice ride.
