    Hi guys, my name is Fraser and I got my Aspen Silver '97 740i last Tuesday. Joined here for information and help (if I ever need it). I'm from Scotland so if anyone see's me driving about the Livingston/Edinburgh area feel free to give me a flash and a wave

    It is standard at the moment except for the wheels. The wheels are AC Schnitzer Type 2's but I am unsure whether they are genuine or replicas at the moment (I haven't even had a chance to take them off yet for a gander). Needs some body work but mechanically it's perfect. Not had a chance to give it a proper clean yet but hopefully will get that done some time in the next week or so!

    Only have one picture at the moment but hopefully will get plenty more in the future! Also if anyone knows anything about the car in particular then I'd be pleased to hear anything about it.

    If you get a chance to take the wheels off, genuine ones will have either AC Schnitzer, BBS, Ronal or some other big manufacturer name on them.

    If there are no names, then they are likely to be copies.
    Even copies are rare these days though!

    I have my fingers crossed! Hopefully get a proper look at them tomorrow when I'm starting to tidy some things up
