Thank you! Too bad it's not closer. Even though it's over 25 years old, it would be so much hassle to import it.

Superfelgi in Poznan.

He's done a bunch of Style 65 rims and specializes in Chrome Shadow.

Here's progress from today on my rims. He told me it's the best set he received so far, straight and without previous repairs and only 1 rim had some curb rash.







Here's some of their previous work.

Wait, the 8er is for sale? Why?

Good updates on the M5, wheels should turn out great!

Yep, that was the plan. In my current situation, it's not viable to have 2 cars. Parking is a big problem when you live in a city, not to mention that maintaining the 8er along with the M5 the way I want to do it would be a heavy cost.
Besides, I like changing cars, going on car buying road trips and having a new project.

Can't wait for the rims to be done. I'm nervous about the finish but based on their previous work I think it should be great.

Ugh, if you were in US, I'd buy it from you.

350€ which seems like a really good deal, but I'll judge that once I get the rims back and inspect them. The cheapest quote I got in Germany was more than double and they couldn't promise a proper finish.

I kinda wish I had this car in the US. The market seems stronger there not to mention bigger. The Dakar Yellow CSi on BaT is getting a lot of attention.

Thanks, Fatandre! I think I read about your E31 on another forum.
