Oh hell yes!

Without even blinking, I'd buy this car again 10 times over. 7 years of ownership, 96,000 miles, and not one single problem. Still drives like the day I picked it up in Munich. THE Best Car I've ever...

My experience has been the exact opposite of yours. My 2008 550i (LCI) has been the single most trouble free vehicle I've ever owned. Period. In 7 years of ownership and over 94,000 miles driven, I...

Ship to Seattle?

I'm interested in the wheels, but not the tires. Would you be willing to ship these to Seattle? if so, what is the shipping cost?

Double-sided tape

Trunk volume: 3er = 13 ft ...
