Ok. I hadn't posted photos.

My 03TiSiM5. Stock except for Dinan exhaust. Two sets of OEM rims. One stock Chrome Shadow set; the winter setup is painted body color with polished lips.

sig is my previous setup.(Powder-coated Bronze OEM style 65s) The wheels work great in L.A., but Tulsa roads are not wheel friendly. I decided to switch out to a smaller wheel.(OEM style 50s) I'm happy with them for the time being. I have not seen them iiRC on this forum. if anyone has more info on the 50s i would love to hear.

I got it from a Audi dealer in Bellvue, Washington for $16,500. I bought the car without seeing it. Carfax was correct and I spoke with the BMW dealer up there that serviced the car to verify mileage they recently did service for fluids, oil etc. The dealer put on a set of brand new Pilot Sport A/S, the spare was brand new never on the car and all of the other wheels were perfect. I was looking for a sports package car, the manuel transmission was a bonus. I sold another 2003 530I to a neighbor for $16,000, he wanted my car for a daily driver. It was also a pretty clean low mileage car, it had 43,000 miles when I sold it. So far the car is great, had the cluster replaced and windows tinted.
