Brought some new BBS LM replicas 18" non staggered fit off ebay..
Wheels have 2 new faulkens on the rears 6mm thread and forcums on the front with 5.5mm thread! They were starting at £200 so i thought i would be cheeky and offer him £250 trying my luck, but i got them for £300! :jaw-dropping

he said on advert scratched and not that good condition.. pictures in all fairness didnt look to good.. thought oh well good bargain.. so i travelled all the way from stansted to milton keynes got there and im not joking the wheels looked brand spanky new with no marks on! :rofl

ebay can be a little weird at times so pretty much saying now that i got an absolute BARGAIN! very pleased with the wheels and make the 318ci look very nice! Pictures will be included a bit later on! :lol

i know what you meen with ebay, i bought my car from there, pictures were crap, all faded and foggy looking, i thought the car looked a bit unloved, but when i went to have a look i thought it was a different car, it was beautiful.
thanks good the pictures were crap! must have put loads off.

Glad to see you sorted something out mate..

Definitely now needs lowering ASAP and pick up some BBS badges from ebay! Don't worry about rubbing, you've got plenty of room there!!

You will not need the arches rolling if you lower an E46 coupe more than 30mm on 18"s!!!
