    Hi folks, just bought a 59 plate 316d as a daily driver. Looking forward to picking peoples brains on here :) It's actually by third BM (previously had a 320i and a 520d) but never bothered to join the forum because they were both pretty much bangers. I'm hoping this one will serve me a fair...

    Hi I recently bought some alloys (after market) not sure on brand, anyway the guys said it came of a 316 99 BMW. I have tried to fit it to my 96 320i and it does not fit, because the centre whole is too small. I was wanted to check if all the e36 bmw's had the same sizes or not. thanks in advance
