The free 93 e34

This is my free e34. So far it's got new struts, intake boot and upper n lower control arms and new headlights. I did an engine swap in a mustang for it. Still needs sway bar links and everything else is all good, less a trans issue that I think is just low fluid

Those look like E60 rims, which is why an otherwise cool car looks odd. If you can swop that out for something series specific, I think you're there. Great colour ! Consider smoking the kidney grills. It would look outstanding against that body.

Thanks, Those were the wheels on it and I really dont like any of the series specific wheels. I dont mind them. May paint them black but thats up in the air still. I manage an autobody and detail shop so all the paint etc. I want I get done for free less the cost of materials of coarse. The tires have good tread and its my second car so I dont have to drive my audi s4 all the time and it can stay parked in its heated shop all winter and get all its goodies:) installed. I have an extra set of gun metal mesh 18's for summer I may put on But there for my audi and I like to switch wheels on it every other week. But 18's may look silly....I plan on smoking all the chrome as I cant stand it. Unless its on a low rider with switches I dont want any part of chrome.

You should not smoke the chrome on the doors, just the grills. Try that for a few days and you'll see what I mean. Its a nice set off against a gunmetal body and tinted windows.

And those are extremely terrible rims. I can't imagine that you want to keep them. Really.

S406 12-03-2012 03:33 PM

all the chromed is going! Lol that's beauty of owing your own car.....you can do what you want to it!! New shoes are last on my list of things as the s4 is my concern. At least there not ronal teddy bears;)

I don't think there that bad...seen a lot worse. And It's still series correct...just not generationally correct.

robertobaggio20 12-04-2012 02:31 AM

Those are E60 wheels indeed. These are the worst stock rims ever made by bmw for a car. Its as if they practically compelled you to 'upgrade' to another set at the dealer.

Geez roberto...You really hate these wheels!!! Though they are not the sickist wheels on the road they are round and do assist in forward and reverse momentum which is key in my situation;)

:dunno: I like a nice five spoke. Those give the car an updated look, I would roll them:thumbup:

Just saw a set on an E60 yesterday. It is terrible. Take a look at some E34 pictures online. You will see what I mean. Anyway, its your car :)

I found some staggered meshies I might grab this weekend...But they are 18's.

Those wheels aren't that bad an if they aren't bent they are keepers. My luck with old Bimmer wheels is many of them are bent. Enjoy

Now, THESE are rims :) :

Almost identical to the wheels for my Audi and the ones I'm looking at. I love meshies;)
