WTB: OEM Style 124's in Mass and/or 275/35/18 and 245/40/18 tires

Anyone got a set of 124's (545/550 pre-LCI sport package wheels) in the mass/new england area? Preferibly with tires, but bare rims are fine also. Doesn't have to be 100% perfect.

If someone has...

Nice car - if I was ordering a new E60 that would likely be exactly the config I would order. The only thing I don't like is that those wheels look like a bigger version of the base 3-series wheels...

K doesn't have to do with brightness (although as you go higher you tend to get less visible light), it has to do with color temperature. I believe the xenon's in a BMW are ~4500K, so 6000K would be...

I don't think it works on an E60. It does not have a MOST connector. SAT on an E60 still requires programming.

I've read that it is the same as Castrol 5W-30 that is made in Germany. At $5.50/qt though, its cheaper than Mobil 1 so I just buy the dealer stuff.

It should be more like $600-$700 - ~$500 for the module and another few hundred for labor. In fact, if you look hard enough, I would bet you could find a dealer who would do it for $500 total.

Looks good.

Just 1 question - how can a 285-35-19 be wider than a 285-30-19? Or did you mean taller sidewall (which it should be, since it is 35% of 285 instead of 30% of 285)? Isn't the 285...

The question is if it has sat pre-wire. I don't think that is an option anymore - do all cars have it or do none have it?

Try e60.net; they are much more into modding there. You'll need something to get a proper low-level signal, the E60 uses a fiber optic system for audio; you won't find any RCA's around.

The US DRL's are programed at the dealer, at least for my 05. You can't just go into the iDrive and change if they are on or not (I think they added this in LCI). Is that really not acceptable?

When I ordered the pin and socket connections they came with ~18" of wire on them already, something like 20ga or so. I just used that, I don't think the thing draws that much power.
