Can't wait to see the style 32 Frank, I had a set that I traded for the style 5's.

I wish my style 5 were staggered !

So, it's October and all, which means that we should all get photos of our cars showing the fall foliage. Fall arrives late here in Seattle, so the colors aren't really out yet, but I imagine there are some excellent colors in other parts of the country right now. Get out there and take some photos, people!

New shoes…but not for me.

I haven't driven our 1994 E36 much since we brought it home from my late fathers home. So today my husband told me he was going to take it to work today to give a drive. He knew I want to some new wheels to make the car a little more current but again I really haven't had much time to think about let alone look. So today he came home with these. :thumb up:

I stuck a previous pic in just for contrast.

you should invest in a little bit of a drop.
make the ride more comfortable and get rid of the wheel gap.

Yeah... Lowering a car is not my thing. I'll leave that to you guys that actually think it cool. This is a car my father bought new 18 years ago. It is stock and only has 24K miles on it. I wouldn't want to disgrace my 83 old fathers car. Changing the wheels and tires was just an attempt to freshen the look up. But thanks for the suggestion.

im not saying to SLAM it. but lower it to make it look nicer.


Karl has a e36 that is probably the cleanest on these boards and they just look that much better with the slightest drop.

Dont slam it like me.... for once i agree to not do that.
