Wait until you start checking the weight of of those wheel options. Many of them are ungodly heavy, which was a major consideration for me.

Your calculations are correct, but they don't apply to my situation. The wheels I wanted only came in a 43 offset, hence the spacers. Real world vs. theoretical.

No, the "slam on the brakes" comment was supposed to be tongue-in-cheek. I can see it didn't come across in typing as it might aurally.

+1

I've had the Easy Street warranty for 3 years on my E61, and it has been fantastic. They have paid every claim promptly and courteously. I have paid only for fluids.

Not one other car? Really?

So you have never seen a 3-series wagon? Or any other wagon for that matter?

Couldn't agree more.

There's a 320 in my neighborhood with M-badges - yes, seriously, an M320! He doesn't
even realize how people are laughing at him as he drives by.

Anyone going?

I'd be interested in meeting some of the board members if we can plan a way to find each other.

It makes me feel both angry and offended when I see a business that is willing to capitalize on the emotions brought about by a tragic event like 9/11 in order to try to sell wheels. JMO.
