My reason for looking for 18" wheels was the lack of all-season or snow tires for the 19" M-Sport staggered setup. These 18" 1er wheels are available for a great price on 1Addicts and Bimmerfest, so...

1-Series Wheels on X3?

I may pick up a set of 18" 1-series style 264 wheels to replace the 19" M-Sport wheels on my X3. Does anyone know if these will fit? (or how they would look? :) )

Are you joking? The E53 X5 4.8is is amazing. We have an 05 3.0 and it certainly isn't a "sucky SUV." Hyundais and Fords are sucky SUVs --- not Bimmers.

Nice X5!

You should have your front windows retinted to match the Comfort Glass. Mirror tint is disgusting, IMO.

Enjoy!

Congrats on the new car, but definately decline any dealership paint/interior protection. They are an absolute joke and far better results can be yielded using products like Zaino or Jeff's Werkstatt.

I paid $25,500 for an 04 325i with Sports, Cold Weather, and Xenons with 19,000 miles.

So I wouldn't pay more than $22-23,000. (Minus taxes, title, etc)

We're talking about the inside, right?

I'd use a dedicated interior cleaner or a Woolite/Water mix. (10:1 Ratio = Water:Woolite)

I don't care for the color or quality of the film. I would probably go with Llumar or Huper Optic in the future.
