I paid 25 and change for mine.
All it does is have a slot on the bottom that the console side fits into and a piece that holds it from tipping to the passenger-side, but trust me, if you turn too fast to the right it will come at you if there is nothing in it.

I must have one. I stop when my Starbuck's level gets low....I always get the same thing - venti 3 shot mocha with only 2.5 pumps (1/2 the amount) of syrup, made extra hot to 145F with whipped cream...only $5.20 here but the same drink cost me $8.75 when I was living in Miami Beach in 2012...

Oh, starbucks.
My dad is a Food Service Tech. i used to go to work with him on holidays, weekends and such. Free drinks ALL the time. They don't make him happy, their equip. didn't get fixed.
But about a year ago he broke his neck and UNC offered him a job. He used to be an outside contractor, but they made a offer he could not refuse. Double his pay, full benefits. In the long run it saves them money not hiring an outside contractor all the time, but the company he worked for is starting to go under for the loss of business, next time they should take care of their employees.

BF.C e34 subforum is usually drama fueled.

You won't gain any traction with him.


He's a good friend and very well versed in everything M5.
Link the thread so I can see.

They're trying to clean up the e34 section. The rules are there's to be no profanity, that's the same here as well.
Also any conversation with m5 vs 540i is just a mess waiting to happen. Even if you were to race, it doesn't prove anything lol.
When racing any evenly matched car it comes down to the driver, not the car. Watch a couple of episodes of Top Gear UK.

Was my point.. But he insisted that the M5 will just walk me period. His car would do the work..

I've been racing long enough to know that is not true... (Unless he had slicks)

A stock M5 will NOT reel me in, and Statistically at least i get ahead on a launch so i wanna shot at the man who claimed to beat seven 540/6..! Thats more than I've ever seen lol

But who knows.. I dont wanna debate, i want him to meet me at the local strip.

I am always looking for a challenge, he just happen to be unlucky enough to run his mouth and be near me so i can call his bluff.. How else could it go lol...

So while attempting to do research on what type's of racing i can do with my e34, where, when ect i found very little.. Not surpised.

And then my phone rang. My uncle (only other racer in the family) says he and a buddy started this new spoof racing series at irwindale!
(My local track) its called skid plate racing. You weld the rear wheels so they stay still and take off the rear tires of a FWD car and go racing!

Oval track means your are sideways non stop. People spinning wildly & About 600$ to build a car he says... Looks way to fun!


Its not quiet as prominent a start off to my serious racing career as i had in mind LOL... But great no e the less.. Video above.

Hate to say it. But it's about time someone tries to get a hold of the nonsense that used to go on.
It gets tired after a while.

I don't express my opinion of BF.C for many of us here have dual membership.
I never want anyone to think I'm bashing BF.C.
It's my home forum. I have long time friends there.
I will always have love for them.
But sometimes it's tough love.


Or maybe I'm just getting older.

I think it's sad... There free speech was all it had going for it besides its sheer numbers... With does nothing for me..


If i just wanted to be controlled and sentenced to conformity id go to any other forums.. At least it was interesting..

Now its just a bunch of boring people not saying what they want or mean.. Lame!

BF.C sucks..! It is So OVER RATED

No there's A TON more info and more knowledgeable members on bf.c. I think that new members see how the old guard acts and believe " Well I'll act like them to fit in...", what they don't understand is that most of the old guard have put a ton of work into that site so they're able to get away with a bit more.

And that is why research pays off.


Maybe i should join BF.C too, but i like this forum, hate to have to keep up with a 7th forum. I seem to have to read every thread that comes up. I have kinda forgotten about my other 5 away from here, but try to read as many as i can.

Question to all the wheel gurus.
I found wheels that i want, and they are 18x8.5 5x120 +18 offset. Will I need spacers? Which ones? Supposedly the offset on our cars should be 20-25? whats the exact number?

Please let me know.

25 is the limit without spacers.
I had a set of zenetti Deuces on my 1st 535. The offset was 30.
They scraped the strut housings.
How much are you willing to spend on wheels?

Hint hint:

I have a rare set I'm willing to let go for a good piece of coin.
