2116[bmw e28] Re: M535 Wheels. . those are M-System II
- 19 Jan 01:46Nice car you have there! Got any more pics? Interesting combo of spec
and appearance, is it a real M535i? I ask since it doesn't have the
bodykit, just the arches. Looks better than with the bodykit IMO
Lucky sod getting those late E34 M5 M-System II wheels, they're about
the best you can get for an E28 in functionality and they look damn
good, a rare find!
