I think you dont need a spare tire, because you have a run-flat tires i think, once you've got flat just drive to repair shop or dealer, thats it

you can use any wheel (18"-21") that fits a 2002-2008 e65/e66. 5x120 bolt pattern with offset approx 24mm

just look on craigslist or ebay or wheelsandcaps.com

do alpinas have bigger brakes? :dunno:

if so, then some small wheels will not fit over the brakes

There is not many out there that way,my was 30K,but there was a lot missing out of it,since my NAV was stolen also,nothing in it was working as you know(radio etc.),that scared the hell out of the small car dealer that sold that car to me,maybe if i was more persistant i could get it even cheaper but i wanted that car so badly.:D

Post some pics of the car when you can....

On the multi-quote, on the bottom of each post, next to the reply button you will see a button that looks like a piece of paper with a quotation mark and a + on it. You click on that button to add additional posts to your reply. Typically, if you have 3 posts you want to reply to, you can click on the "piece of paper" button on the first two and hit quote on the final one and they will all be there. (at least thats how I do it).

i'd never buy a salvaged car but 30k for a stolen/gutted B7 is still a steal (for the 2nd time).
