BMWs throw back to the iconic 2002, with a renewed form and function. The smallest car in BMW's line up but still packs a punch. Available in coupe or convertible, powered by either an inline 6 in the 128 or the twin turbo rocket sled 135.

cracked rim

on my rear rim the inner lip has a noticeable crack with about 1 inch in length, is this dangerous? should i get it repaired? or replace it with new one. I have the bmw 135i, with staggered setup and 18 inche wheels. anyone has experience with repaired rims? the shop asked for 100 dollars. is this worth it?

I just asked this same question on the 3 forum. Similar response from a local shop where I will take it for repair.

When you get them, can you report back? I'm interested in ordering from them as well. Thanks

It worked out ok i got the rims in 5 days. It looks like they cleaned them and sprayed a layer of paint on the inside to make it look like its new. No visible cracks or anything of the sort . Mounted on my car and runs fine
