My new car!!

Hey Everyone,
I'm just saying whats up and I'm a new owner for a 745i. Its Alpine White with Black interior. Its an awesome car and I'm going to love having it Only thing i need to do now is buy a warranty but that's another thread i suppose. Sorry, the car does need a little cleaning but i'll get to that tomorrow. I just drove it home and wanted to share my excitement.


Thanks!

Congratulations on a good choice. I personally think the black interior looks much better than the tan ones with the white exterior. it's also easier to keep clean. Welcome to the forum. 99.5% of the guys on here are great.

Thanks everyone. Now time for mods. I'm waiting to go either the oem 21 style128 (replica would work too) or a set of 22. Which would to guys prefer??

I love the factory oem lok of the 21 but the lips on the 22 are insane

Should I go chrome, black/chrome lip, all black?

Do NOT go 22's on this car. The 21's will already be on rubber bands and will likely bend. The 22's are just too..."childish, trashy, etc" IMHO for this car. Lip is not everything and I've seen 20's with 5 inch lips. Why would you need/want more than that anyway?

21s will have a good amount of meat on 'em (talking about tires) 22's will be riding on rubber bands

and congrats on a such a nice car purchase

^ agree, however know that once you get up into these larger sizes, tires get expensive, around 520 for each of the rears and around 400 for each front tire.
