Received my Kit Today

The Spare Tire Kit arrived today, hopefully there are pictures attached of it. Just to be sure everyone knows the Tire Tote pictured is NOT included with the kit, it is extra, the cost was $11.95 for the Tire Tote. Which brought the total cost shipped to $351.90, of course if enough Bimmerfest members order one the cost will come down.

thanks for the pics... looks good... best to practice using the jack as it looks different although the principle is really the same

You are welcome, I have actually used this type of jack before and did not have a problem
with it. I am totally pleased with the kit, the speed in which it was shipped, now to get it mounted in the trunk. Vincent at Bimmerzone is really great to deal with and this is a great product IMO. So if anyone is looking for a spare tire kit now is the time with the discount offered by Bimmerzone.

I will try to get some pictures of it mounted in the car and post them later this evening or tomorrow.

Spare Tire Kit Mounted in Trunk
 
5 Attachment(s)
Pictures are not the best, but you get the idea, plenty of room to keep all kinds of items on top of the spare. Also a couple of pictures of my Chicago Impact that works off of the accessory plug, or you can hook it to the battery connections in the trunk or under the hood. This really makes changing a tire much easier.

docpaulo 04-29-2010 08:24 PM

just sent in my order... so far we have 4 confirmed orders...

one more and basically we get the tote for free...

Where did you get the impact wrench and what did it cost?

Thanks DocPaulo for posting that information, just to answer Bokmeipi directly, I got mine
at the Good Guys PPC Nationals in Columbus, Ohio from a vendor there, if I recall correctly I paid $21.50 each but I purchased several to get that price. I wanted one for each of my cars plus a couple extra.

Just having some fun! I am a big user of power tools, whatever makes life easy and quick.

DocPaulo, what is the total now, and did you find out if they were going to count earlier purchases. I believe there was one post that said he had purchased one a week or two before your post.

docpaulo 05-04-2010 04:50 PM

we have 4 confirmed purchases... the one from 2 weeks ago appears to be from bavauto not bimemrzone...

one more...

mine will arrive next week... peace of mind is precious I guess...

docpaulo 05-08-2010 03:49 PM

mine arrived yesterday and I have to say I like the tray since it makes everything flush with the tire...

with the convertible top down and the box lowered, it does take up most of the space... but overall it's a good way to have peace of mind for out of town trips.. the tote bag makes it easy to pull in and out of the trunk and store in the garage...

unfortunately we only have 4 confirmed buys... so if anybody else buys from this seller, please reply to this thread...

E60 Spare Tire Kit
 
Ordered Kit with tire cover this evening. Did reference Bimmerforum when I ordered.
This should be at least #5:thumbup:

docpaulo 05-17-2010 09:49 PM

I emailed the vendor today and he should be able to confirm the numbers...

thanks to all...

bigdgpa 05-18-2010 06:46 AM

Just got an email that I got a $15 dollar refund from Bimmezone so keep your eyes open for yours too! :rofl:

docpaulo 05-18-2010 07:34 AM

weak46 he will be adjusting your invoice to reflect the discount, the other 4 will get 15 dollars refund via their payment method...

at least pays for the tote bag which is a great option as it makes it all look clean...

FLIGHT20THREE 05-18-2010 08:05 AM

I think I may have to break down and purchase this spare kit as well...looks like a solid investment.

those that are planning to buy, you can email vincent after ordering and see if he'll credit you the discount...

I like mine... it's the perfect solution for peace of mind when I leave town or drive up to canada

bigdgpa 05-18-2010 08:31 AM

Definitely peace of mind, seeing how I've been through a flat on the way to Vegas, nothing like being in the middle of desert with no spare. To make matters worse trying to get a 22" tire on a Saturday in Vegas and then someone who can put it on the rim. One of the worst days of my life, so this spare tire kit is a must IMO.

Wild Geese 1 05-18-2010 09:59 AM

Refund Received
 
I have also received my refund, its a good deal without the % off, and now it is a better
deal.
