thanks, its one of the best colours for the e31 imo.

Some guys from the locol bmw club did an all nighter polishing the car.

Index of /niko/mycorradoweb/m8/before and after polishing

also had a small meet (even in finnish standards earlier on spring) the weather wasn't the greatest unfortunately

Changing the ignition cables recovered some of the ponies, but some are still missing. I suspect the air mas meters, but at the prices bmw charges I'd rather not.

Congratulations on your gorgeous Csi!

Red is the colour I prefer on these cars, also.

The two-tone BBS rims look much better than the Schnitzer wheels - making the car look subtly aggressive and not too chunky.

Are they 19 or 20 inch?
Any loss of ride/handling over the standard size rims?

I still like the original 18-inch M-Parallels on the E31, but maybe they're a little too understated on a big red coupe!

Hi,

Its been a while, again. The car is now on "old skool" oz futura 9+ 10.5x18 wheels. Suits the shape nicely inho.

Sorry EPDM, but you've lost me with those wheels.
I don't recall ever seeing a worse combination on an E31 - totally kills the look of this otherwise stunning car, IMHO.

Sorry, but I'm being completely honest here...bring back those two-tone BBS rims, please!

No, the new five-spokes are fantastic, much closer to that 90's sporting look. The BBS's just don't fit what is a hallmark of that mid 1990s aesthetic, IMHO :-)

Granted, they might look OK on a 90's muscle car, but not on what is arguably the most beautiful BMW coupe ever built.
They certainly don't speak "refinement".

I guess, those enormous two-tone wheels on cars with smaller wheel wells have always just screamed "Look at my sweet (insert car that people only change aesthetics and never performance) that I modded" to me. They're sweet rims, but I think they just got over-copied and now you see the look everywhere it shouldn't be.

IMHO, a rarer stock wheel always wins for me. Like style 68's on an E46. And, frankly, the spirit of BMW for me hasn't ever been refinement like the MBs do it. They're not the best choice, maybe, but I like that it clashes. I think that's the soul that draws me in, the beauty and sophistication against the goes-like-stink.

Though, if I'm honest, I've never really liked that style of wheel, only just appreciated that they typifies an era.

So I think I'm just arguing for the sake of it, sorry.
