    HI I am looking at spending about £13000 on a 7 series and would like to know peoples opinions on age vs miles example 2014 with 120k miles or 2011 with 50k miles? Is there a year where major changes took place and therefore worth paying extra to get. Many thanks for any advice or thoughts.

  10. BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46

    So I bought this bmw and I had some 17" wheels for it but ended up swapping for a 15" when I noticed that the passenger side rear tire rubbed like crazy. I have found some things to check like: Alignment but it would most likely destroy one side of the tires I think? Wishbone Suspension has...
