Seems to me that you're going to extremes just to get more wheel options for your xi. Even if you can do what you're trying to do, you're still stuck with the same hubs, so you'd have to change them...

Ray, I hardly think that modifying an xi to be RWD is just a matter of changing some wiring. We're taking about two different drivetrains here. Why don't you just go out and get an "i" ?

Check the part number he gives you against the RealOEM web site. If it matches, find out what his return policy is if it doesn't work out. He says "Buy with confidence". Make him prove it.

First of all, how did the ET 20 rims even fit your xi? The offsets for the 2008 528xi should range between 35 - 45. Did they stick way out?

With regard to the new rims,...

Thanks for the pic, though like I stated earlier, that seems to be only a West coast phenomenon. Everywhere else shows diesel costing more than premium.

Shell

The correct OEM part number is 6790054-04.
