A guy on R3V was (and probably still is) selling a few sets of e30 M3 BBS centrelocks, with one full set of hubs... but sooooo expensive

Yeeee I saw that... I do think they did sell though. You'd be surprised how much demand there is for these types of wheels. Problem is, the wheels (usually the centers) are somewhat fragile and have a relatively short service life due to fatigue in the magnesium centers.

Almost a "play and throw away" scenario with the rims, eh? Essentially you figure they are retired rims because they probably have existing hairline cracks. Still. BBS.... Magnesium... Centrelock... I want them. And an M3 to put them on.

Yeah man. It sucks, I could build a set of wheels with all the cracked centers I've seen over the years from the cars. I was trying to buy a set of used M3 DTM wheels from a guy in malaysia during the summer, but within a few weeks of chatting with him, out of the blue he had them redone... I said dude, now its worth even less because I can't see ANY cracks at all anymore... and needless to say he wanted more because they were fixed up. Ha, fat chance. Wasn't planning to gamble on those. Could buy 5 e30s for the money he ended up wanting for the set *shakes head*

For the past couple weeks, I've been pondering what to do for gauges. Researching countless ideas online, nothing really fit my criteria of clean appearance, and a price tag that isn't out the window. This isn't some championship winning build, so I ruled out using a digital dash (although it would be pretty badass). I resorted to some creative thinking using a 2002 gauge cluster that I bought on here recently which I later discovered wasn't a good purchase (very poor shape), but I'm trying to make good out of a shoddy situation. I took the cluster apart, and started to make a template for my gauge holder. I will be reusing the original 2002 rpm gauge, but shifted over to the center of the cluster, while 4 VDO 2 1/16th gauges will be housed alongside. I'll also be putting in a few warning lights for low oil pressure and such.

Paper template cut out.



Now to figure out how to put the gauges. Not left with enough space, so staggering them will have to do!

Have you considered

Duplicating what Alpina did? You could fabricate something out of fiberglass (considering your new found bondo skills this should be easy). Mount on top of dash above the center console.
