Polarized sunglasses make the HUD very dim. I can see it OK if the brightness is all the way up. Different glasses, different eyes, who knows. Maybe your dealer has something on the lot you can...

205/50R13 will fit on the stock rims. This was a popular upgrade when these cars were more common.

Update 4/24: Perhaps it was 205/60R13. Been 15 years since I had the car, and an old brain.

I guarantee the BMW loans for my business, but they're not on my recent TransUnion report. No leases for us - too many miles. My wife's loan shows up because the car is in both our names.
