245/45-16 is a perfect fit on an 8" rim. Overall diameter is 626mm, (cf 632 for the 225/50-16). This is a little smaller than is ideal, but it will probably mean that new 245/45-16s will be a decent match for front (worn) 225/50-16s. If you have odd diameter tyres this could upset the ABS (if fitte...

I 've actually seen this car - I viewed it a few months ago whilst scouring for an M6 - in the end I chose a lower mileage in white. This is still advertised on the Autotrader website, as is a red M6 with "58k miles" for 12k GBP at Cleevewood Garages - I've seen that one as well :shock: :!: Sharkfa...

I see quite a few of these over the course of a year According to the old hands one of the things that has changed over the years is that in the 1970's some people survived accidents which just about blew the cars apart These days automotive design has progressed to the point that although in many c...

Must say the last BMW that I liked to look of was the E34.
I think this is one of the smoothest, most cohesive BMW designs ever - the original was so good that very few bodywork modifications worked on it - I think especially good in touring form with 17 inch alpinas 8)

Who drives sixers...

How many mid-30's drivers are there of the NEW 6 series (excepting those who've been able to get them as Company cars...) that you've seen on the road? Me, I've only seen guys in their 50's+ driving the new 6! Met a guy in a local supermarket car park the other day with a spanking new 645i in black...

I agree, sections for brakes and their shimmy; Starting problems Upgrades/modifications and so on; remember, if you've been with the site a little while it's relatively easy to figure out where, what and how; but there's now a lot of useful information in threads that didn't start out with that part...

Is it me or is your car wearing the very rare split rim metrics.
I had a good long second look but the tread pattern isn't anything close to a TRX so I'd guess 17 inch;

I saw this one and thought it looked very tidy; good original straight bodywork, black leather genuine recaro's with rear headrests; slap on some 17 inch Alpina replicas and you've got a tidy runner.

Just my ten pence worth,

Iain,

I loved this sentiment;
Be wary of strong drink, it can make you shoot at tax collectors, and miss.

New Six Keyring

These new six keyrings are cheaper than 18GBP if you buy direct at your local dealer; I think 14 GBP; I've had mine for months and it's lovely.
