My car with the new Breytons

Hey whatsup. Heres a crappy pic of my 96 328ic Sport
switched the 17x8 7-spokes for 18x8.5 Breyton Magics
switched the ac schnitzer springs for my original sport springs due to suspension difficulties (my car is still in the shop, this is the tenth day)...
Also did a great audio install. Sorry for the crappines of the pic....
:smoke3:

Man, that looks good, they look much better than the E46 wheels you had on previously.


No wax this time eh?

OK Gamite, you caught me. Thats how my car usually looks
Still, not too bad for 108,000 miles, Gotta zymol it this weekend.
Mr. T, she's been running around topless for a few weeks now, this is from a few weeks ago when I first got the rims, I needed a new upload cable for my digicam.
My car is STILL in the shop. I bought the rims off a friend, and I took them to get balanced and... they are all bent (He refunded me the full purchase price) Im attaching a pic of his e46 which had to be sold. He lost his license for three years so he sold it to avoid the inevitable temptation. So I'm replacing my lower control arm bushing for the 5th time in a year, getting all my rims straigtened, all wheels balanced, and full alignment. It upsets me when I have to spend a g just to make my car drive in a straight line. No more 1.5" drop either
Heres a pic of my friends e46... full ac kit, sick system, remus etc...

Hey bud,

Well the rims look really nice man. I am still in a bit of a toss up though, I really liked the E46 17" rims you had on them to. They made look unique. Anyway, I still can't complain, those are very nice rims.
Ciao bud
Jay

Whatsup Jay? Are you through with your $tealer woes, or are you still enduring the pain like I am (12th day, $1,000 usd and counting.....)
Tell you the truth, I liked my dropped w/ 17s setup (appearance wise and definitely performance wise), much more than the current setup. I guess these look better, but I'm told they are very heavy and that they bend easily.
We'll see....
Peace

Hey bud,

Yeah, I am done with my $tealer crisis. 1800.00$ cdn for three flippin parts!!!!! They made so many screw up's, my car was in the shop for 4 days. They gave me a 318i as a loner, and man did I love my car that much more when I got it back!
I am seriously doing buisness at a european car shop with OEM parts at cheaper prices and half the labour costs. My Stealer charges $95/h which is ridiculous but it is the closest one to me.
Anyway, I hope your ordeal went okay man. Yeah as I said before, I like the 18's, but man, did the 17's and lowering make your car look sexy!
Ciao bud,
Jay

The Breytons are gone already


I got them used, they were so bent that they are unfixable....
So I knew I had to do the right thing
Bought a new set of BBS RXs (18x8)
This is day 14 of my stealer ordeal
Should have some new pics for you next week.
