All of the above.
1) it was fiberglass (if you do decide to get a replica - at least get polyurethane, its not as rigid as fiberglas)
2) horrible fit - did not line up with the the lines of the car
3) did not come with double tape or glue
4) was not primed correctly

What a nightmare!!! The Schnitzer however was a a perfect fit and comes with everything you need.

Wow, I'm sure having no spaces between the spokes do wonders for cooling the brakes.

titanium, thats one great setup, lookin clean and classy... however, in the pics, your front passenger tire looks dangerously low, esp if you hit any imperfections in the road!

your interior color is great thats not a regular tan right?
Its Kalahari Beige Metallic outside, and the interior is Natural Brown w/Nasca Leather. I get lots of comments from my passengers on the interior color, its a love it or hate it thing. Most love it!

I just got my gearbox replaced under warranty in my '02 745i So yeah, Warranty is most certainly a thing of importance.
