I do not think the 16" wheels will fit over your brakes on a 335xi. I think 17" wheels are the minimum diameter for your car.

In Europe they are often called "city lights" or "citilights". They illuminate the headlight housing, but they do not illuminate the road ahead.

Remember that E39 wheels will not be an exact fit for your E90. The hub center diameters are different. :mad:

My basic issue is that I am also almost 6'4" tall, so I need the maximum headroom possible. I therefore always special-order my cars with the moonroof deleted.

Congratulations on getting them to fix your timing chain. I can imagine it would be an expensive repair, if the chain were to break (new engine?).

Four cylinder versions of the E90 (as well as the E46) were not sold in the USA. Therefore, most driveline parts will probably not be interchangeable.
