I suppose it all comes down to priorities. I have always done my own oil changes on all my cars, for various reasons.

Thanks for the response. I didn't know the fenders were wider. I had already checked out Umnitza, but I thought OEM might be better quality and fitment. Obviously not possible.

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.

+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.

Couldn't agree more.

There's a 320 in my neighborhood with M-badges - yes, seriously, an M320! He doesn't
