    BMW 3 Series Forum - Technical Talk on the BMW E46

  3. Want to change the alloys on my recently purchased 645i - advice pls!

    Tyres and Alloy Wheels Forum
    I have recently purchased a 2004 very low mileage 645i. It has 19" wheels and the alloys to me, are not a good look for the car. I'd like alloys with the BMW badge on, but want to avoid fakes. I have seen alloys advertised on the site below and wondered if these would be any good, or is it...

    BMW 5 Series - Tech Talk For All Gen Of 5 Series
    My 540 was recently converted to LPG and has thrown a "check coolant" alert twice since then, in about 1000 miles give or take. It never did this before, could just be coincidence, both times when the alert went off I had to top it up a little, not loads just a little. Is this likely because...
