At that mileage, it's all been done already, twice!

Not that these are super cheap or anything... but with some new lips, cleaned up, and on an E30...

Is that the one at Mycar in Richmond? Apparently it's a huge POS.

From my buddy who went to see it:
Quote:
I had a look at this "car" about 6 weeks ago (they were asking $1,000.00 more back then) ..
It has more rust that my 325 .... the picture is of the "good" side.
When I looked at it, it was running on 5 cylinders, needs a clutch, needs shifter bushings, needs a rad,
needs a water pump, needs rust repair, missing rocker trim on the passenger side, needs a climate control module,
needs a drivers seat, need brakes, probably needs a front end overhaul .. tie rods control arms ca bushings ...
all in all what I would call a real POS!
I'd sell my car at that price...

If he drops it more, I may buy it for parts.

I got them. The tires are shit (to be cut off with a sawzall) and the clear on the lip is messed up, but 3 of the four are good metal, and the last one has a few pits in the centre. A bit of curbage on the lips, but not too bad. Caps are pretty good.

I lowballed the guy badly, and the speed he said OK made me think I should have lowballed way more. They should clean up nicely, and eventually I'll get a 1.5 or 2" lip to make them 15x7.5 or 15x8.

They will look good on my wife's e30, and make a good project to refinish.

Sweet deal. How much did you end up paying, if you don't mind my asking?

I low-balled him at $450 and he took it so fast I figure I should have said $350. Anyway, at $112.50 each they're still a good deal, even for "soft" RMs.

Now I have to figure out what colour I want the centres to be. The E30 is zinno, so traditional silver works, as does black, but I think black obscures the weave. Maybe Nagorosilver? Body colour doesn't blow my hair back either.

Yeah, pretty good price for a set of BBS multi-piece wheels...

If you're asking for opinions: I think they look best in traditional silver or nogaro. Not a huge fan of the black, gold, etc for the centres.

But I like classic style

That's my conservative nature as well. I'll see if I can find a can (or two) of Wurth BBS silver somewhere. Nogaro might look good with the red and polished lips, but I have no idea where I could find it.
