    Alright guys,

    As said above, my 316ti has some shodddddddyyy welding in the boot area. It looks so unprofessional of BMW to do this. Are they just like this? The wifes Audi A4 has a perfect fit and finish and the welding is all neat (typical of Audi's fit and finish quality)
    If you don't understand what I mean feel free and say and I will try and explain

    you sure mate?? shoddy welding under the boot carpet is normally a sure fire sign of a previously repaired rear end shunt..

    would need a picture to make a useful common though lol

    Don't wanna sound rude but those rims looks like it's photoshopped. Could be wrong though

    Need to see pics of those dodgy welds mate. My boot looks fine.

    Using my trained eye i'de say they arent photoshopped to be honest.. the angles are too good...

    I say there 19's but because of the design as they go right to the edges it looks bigger...
