Couldn't stand the shake anymore. Called RLD to get my style 5's refinished and they told me that they only paint wheels they don't refinish them or sandblast them :huh?: So the style 5's are a winter project but what to do about the bent Borbet I have on my car. . . :idea:

Dayum! Hot!! VERY hot!

To have rims straightened and refinished, I've only heard good things about P. Jacques in Montréal. I think they pick up here in town too, so you don't have to drive/ship to Montréal.

I personally seen style 5's refinished by Pierre and they were like new, perfect. But seriously, why even bother now?!

^^^Seriously, I agree with Jay. Stick with the M-parallels.

My... freaking.... god... that's hot.*mw*

Edit...I seriously am going to start looking for an e34 now. God I love the look of them. Yours and Gamite's...so freaking hot.

Thanks guys, I like em too. I don't think the style 5's will be going back on. Once you go 18" the 17"s will look too small.

Adam i'm telling you look at the on on trader and low ball the guy. Winter rebuild and some body and your set. New engine, new paint work, dinan stage 2 suspension, dinan chip, nice 17" momo rims, nice stereo apparently($6000). And the major component 5spd. Theres also a 535im in torono on max and another in the trader for cheap.

heres the one in Ottawa http://images.trader.ca/autotrader/15/55/2413318.jpg.fpx?large for $2600 OBO . .
