Ya man...That's why we try and organize cruises to come down in Ontario.

I actually got them at a pretty good deal. Your right, it was a difficult choice, I really wasn't crazy about putting 20's on either but they don't make that rim in 19, and for the SAME price, they made it in 18. So I went for the 20 and it's awesome. But like I said in a thread, when I have 4 passengers on a Montreal bumpy road, I start rubbing a bit in the back. So I'm looking into either changing suspension, or rolling in the fenders. But other than that, I'm glad to be the only one to have these rims in MTL so far.

You know what, it went pretty well. But you are right though, I also heard bad things about them and my friend of mine had REALLY bad experience with them, like so bad. He bought some wheels off of LTW, and hit a pot hole, surprise surprise here in MTL, and the rims split in HALF bro... He took pics and sent it to the company, spoke to some high people and they didn't want to do anything. And before that they misshipped a couple of things to him. All that to say he had a bad experience, but I had a not so bad experience, the only bad thing I would have to say is when I got my rims, I was anxious to install them , and when I got home and realized that the back rims, I had 2 left tires (rims) I was pissed (because my wheels are staggered). So the next morning I had to go a get the tire swapped position. That's a piss off, but other than that, be careful of which rims you choose, and just be nice, you piss them off, they are going to treat you like shit. BTW, I'll post up a pic shortly of what the rim looked like, scary stuff.

Gathering from what you have in the stable Old School. I think there is a good chance you will be able to make it next year on the July long weekend for Tedfest and the Steelback Grand Prix in T.O. Ted

The e39 M5 or really any e39 with the m package is simply beautiful, id almost go as far as saying its the best looking bmw of all time.


The perfect blend of agressivness and refined luxury.

This car especially in Black, I think defined BMW in the late 90s early 2000s.

I just love em. Great pics guys
