Hey guys new to the forum's here.
Also new to BMW's in general.

Im from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Lived most my life with Nissan's and just recently sold my Honda Ruckus.

2008 Honda Ruckus


This is the scooter I sold to purchase my BMW. I bought it 2 provinces over in Alberta, then drove it back to Manitoba.

Car is pretty mint. Came with 132,xxx kms. Only rust spots, cig burn in passenger seat and paint flaking/chips. Other than that its in very good condition.

And yes its right hand drive.















First things first, I want to get the car safetied so I can register it. Been driving with a temp insurance for now.

Got the brake light switch issue fixed, along with rewire the license plate light. Now to work on the suspension and the valve ticking.

Cheers

It looks nice Robert. Do those E39 wheels run good for you? I know they have to have a hub centric ring and sometimes people get some shimmy with them.

Hey bmr lvr..... Well when I got the rims with not so great of rubbber on them I had a bad shimmy lol real bad. So I went to big brand tires and got two new Cooper cs4 touring tires for $206 and the shimmy is gone. I do get a little vibration and shaking but because of my rear tires which I will be replacing in about a week and soon as some Ben franklins role in. But when I do replace my rear tires I will definetly let you guys know of any issues.

Next thing up is brembo slotted rotors with ebc pads for all four. Yay!!! :-)

Thanks

Robert

Caroline

Here is Caroline.

She's Oxfordgrun over Pergament (I think. Don't tell her I'm not sure.) She got new shoes a couple of months ago. They're staggered Borbet Type Es (17x8 with 235/45s on front, 17x9.5 with 255/40s on rear) painted in an anthracite gray.

I've had her for almost two years, and bought her bone stock with 76k miles on the clock. She now sits on H&R springs with Bilstein Sport struts, but is otherwise unmodified. Short term plans include an electric smart fan (once I find the right kit), a 3.15 LSD from an E32, and a 6-speed transmission conversion.

Yep, it's love.

The JDM imports are easy to pick out. They have the licence plate holder because the holes for the JDM plates are different then the rest of us.

Few more of my car.

I need to get up early one morning and re-take those photos. I think the shadow messes up the photos.

Here are a few pics of my "New" 1991 525i. I got it for $800 bucks. Needs an exhaust and hopefully just a tune up (its misfiring) other than that, some TLC and its good to go.
