Expensive though. Have you inspected the ECU for nasties? Shorts...

  • All, I had my e28 fully loaded yesterday, and there was very little tyre clearance in the fenders. I'm currently running 205/60/16s, but was considering 225/50/16s. It didn't seem like there was 10mm of space between the tyre wall and the inside o the fender. Are other people running this width of tyre okay? I have et20 wheels (Borbet H) THanks Andrew...

  • All, How wide is the trunk of an e28? I'm getting a hand-me-down tent if it fits in the trunk, but I have to ship it across the USA to even get it to my car. Plane leaves in twelve hours, so I'm hoping for a speedy reponse. Thanks! Andrew

  • My 1986 535i has a stopped odometer, but the spedometer works just fine. I hear there's a plastic sprocket that might have gone for a walk? Where can I get a replacement? Is the repair tricky? Thanks! Andrew

  • Looking to get a new set of tyres for my 535i. I've got 205/60/16, but I'm thinking of doing 225/50/16. I hear this will increase the lateral performance but decrease longitudinal performance. The 205s are the same price as the 225s at my local shop, so I'm sorta looking for opinions. Thanks Andrew ____________________________________________________________________ Find the LOWEST...
