Seriously, when are the potholes EVER going to get fixed? They just keep getting worse. Where are my tax dollars going?? I'm sure we've got the MP's extravagant business expenses covered. What are they doing?? Buying Lambos now at our expense???

The problem is that only the corrupt get to the top by lying and cheating and they get worse once they are up there.

Thanks... and no, they are cast... they have been having lots of problems with them apparently, too!

(you think when you spend $3500.00 for an upgraded sport package to get the 19" wheels they would be better quality... but whatever, I bought the car second hand, so I feel less ignorant lol)

awe ouch that's rough. Really insist that BMW replaces your rim for free or for a strongly discounted price, spending $950 on a rim is insane.

Your car looks very nice, I like the color combo.

I've been running 225/40/18 since last summer and was worried I'd bend something during winter/spring but I've been lucky so far.

I just closed on a new 328 tonight with sports package, which has 17" runflats and they seem soo much better than the ones on my 325. Are they really rough on your car?

Bimmerjoe. I need a set of shifter bushings, can you hook a brotha up with a discount? :p

Stephiepoo, sorry to hear about the rim. I was at the dealer this past weekend and was eyeballing a set of rims. Most of them retailed at well above what I payed for my car... fml.

=p
