You might want to keep in mind as you go up tire prices increase, and choices become fewer.

A new set of HID Hellas are $1,500+. High quality but still 20+ year old technology. That's why owners often research alternatives.

I'm still getting error message but different one, saying another 24-48 hours. Yes definitely go there. I really like BFest for the E39, but the F15 X5 community is more active at Bimmerpost.
