  1. Wheel suggestion for E46

    I'll try and upload one soon - i can only upload pictures from my iPad and not my mac so let me dig out the iPad tonight, or tomorrow.
  2. BoxClever's 330D sport touring - back from the dead! 13/3/17

    Hi mate - i think so, sounds about right. I'll go and check on the car later. They don't look crazy stretched, but they are stretched if you know what I mean! I think they look great. The car could do with being lowered as the arch gap is noticeable, or maybe put a bigger sidewall tyre on in the first place. But I'm happy they fit, and don't rub, or bottom out, even with load in the back.
  3. Wheel suggestion for E46

    It's not been mentioned on this thread (i think) but there are style 32's in E46 fitment - 8/8.5 J ET47/50 - and I have them on mine and they look great.. I'll be selling them soon too if you're interested:)
  4. BoxClever's 330D sport touring - back from the dead! 13/3/17

    Please put "off" and "f@ck" in a different order. With this car my wallet is bare:) But come have a beer in my pub, we can discuss:)
  5. I just bought my own pub, how about dropping in?

    All friendly, quiet and non-smelly wives / children / dogs allowed:) Would be great to meet you!
  6. Recommend tuners for my 330cd

    Hi mate I'm in Bristol too and I've used Avon Tuning based in Tockington - nice guys and will talk you through options as they can just provide an off the shelf map or they can properly live tune it. Google and give them a call:) And if you fancy having a look at my vert and D-touring then come over to my pub for a pint, always good to meet another zoner:) https://www.facebook.com/sevenstarstimsbury/ Cheers, Rich
  7. BoxClever's 330D sport touring - back from the dead! 13/3/17

    It definitely needs a drop as there is LOADS of room under there, and no rubbing at all. But this is a workhorse, Daz, and it has already cost me thousands more than the asking price to keep it moving and it was never meant to be a looker - I have the vert for that! And I quite like the bouncy look of it:)
  8. I'm forever finding both my cars unlocked when i return to them as the fob buttons have been pressed in my pocket. The most annoying is the boot release on my convertible - coming back to the bloody car and the dash display showing the bootlid open... arghhh. So yeah, I think you may have inadvertently unlocked it for this to happen - stereos really don't get stolen these days so it could just be an opportunist trying the doors on cars as he walks passed and got lucky with yours being unlocked.
  9. BoxClever's 330D sport touring - back from the dead! 13/3/17

    So a stressful few months in my life with signing the pub deal and then this touring's turbo forking the engine... but you can't say I'm a quitter!! A good secondhand engine was sourced and fitted, X5 wheels put on and the replacement key and lock barrel have all been done and the car flies once more... and looks the dogs too! What do you reckon?! Oh, and both my cars now have extremely similar number plates I love a bit of OCD:) I'll get a picture of them together some time soon I hope!!
  10. I just bought my own pub, how about dropping in?

    Thanks Gaz, I open Friday after a 6 week and a big bucks refit! E46Zoners get 20% off their first round... come on down:)
  11. Hi Aaron I thought I answered this already - the fronts will be totally fine, but the backs will be close, but should be fine... on standard suspension. Cheers.
  12. BMW Wheel Hub Sizes/Hub Centre Bore Sizes and ET/Offset

    Have a mess around on this site, it'll help. http://www.willtheyfit.com
  13. BMW Wheel Hub Sizes/Hub Centre Bore Sizes and ET/Offset

    Hi Aaron, The correct size for these cars is 5x120 but the size of the wheels width and offset) are fine for those axles - the rear tyres will be close but should be fine on standard suspension.... but will be close. You could take the rear tyre size down to 245/35 or 235/35 to be safe. Otherwise all good!! But if you go a lot lower on the suspension then you may need to roll the arches at some point. Cheers:)
  14. Speaker advice

    Is a tricky one if you are trying to retain stock stuff - is the car HK? You need to be aware that the car runs on a different ohmage than some so take advice on what you need.
  15. I just bought my own pub, how about dropping in?

    Thanks Daz, has been a long time coming but yeah - I'm more than a little bit excited:)
