  1. Gaz's Graphite Grey 330ci

    Great thanks for your reply, ordered the wheels and 5mm longer bolts than standard to go with the 5mm spacers. I’ll go ahead and order a set of 68mm BMW centre caps now as youve confirmed they fit. Thanks again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    About to order a set off CMwheels myself, did you order longer wheel bolts for the front with the 5mm spacer, or do the standard bolts have enough thread left to secure the alloys? Also where did you source centre caps? Do standard 68mm BMW ones fit?
  3. Sorry to hear about the accident and glad everyone is OK. I was involved in a non fault accident, bin lorry reversed into the front of my E90 when I was parked in a public car park. I was and still am with Esure, all I can say is they handled the situation brilliantly. Great customer service. The car unfortunately was a write off, similar damage to your car. I got a hire car for the whole process off Esure and they liaised with the Council’s insurance and sorted the communication on my behalf. Gutting but i’m sure they’ll assist you to a high standard like they did me. You will receive a non fault claim on your insurance. My premium didnt go up much, im sure it was less than £100 extra a year and I have 2 cars insured with them. What I did was buy the car off the insurance company at a reduced price. They take the money off the final agreed value of the car. So i got my car back then the rest of the car value as a cheque. I then sold it as a write off to Copart. Contact Copart online, theyll ask for pics etc and theyll stick to their offer price. I made £500 on the original purchase price - purchased the car 6 months previous to the accident by doing this. If you deal with the at fault party’s insurance company dont take their first price. Find cars on ebay, Autotrader, Gumtree etc of similar condition to what yours was and haggle. Obviously if you are attatched to the car, sentimental, mods etc, you could buy it back and register as a write off, cat c/d etc. I didnt see this worth it as it was unmodified. Its a stressful time but looking back it was a learing process and I couldnt be happier now as i’m back in a E46 with the money I recuperated. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
