With little bit of both, the fob has been acting up so have had to use the key at times. Ever since the lock failed last week I haven't locked the car since the fob couldn't be trusted as a backup. Maybe this all works as a reminder to start proceeding with fixing the remote access next.

Been running fine after maf dilemma. One day suddenly felt it run weird few seconds... Did not think of it much at that moment but today looked fault codes and misfire cyl. 6... Maybe it going towards needing new coils soon.

Washed, paint correction, and ceramic coat. 6 hrs. Only you know Lord how I garnered the strength!

Sorry Ole’Girl for scratching your gear. I’ll be more careful next time.

Side note. Imagine how much quicker that thing would be with some non-chrome 20's on it. I think you're rocking 21's right?

Thanks!

Yeah they are 21”. They are Genuine BMW style 128 wheels. They are a bit heavier, but the 10” on the front, and definitely the 11.5” on the rear is what I wanted. 325’s on the rear, with no spacers, or hub centric rings.

The chrome, meh.. One day I will address some curbing, and refinish gloss black. But….. As a horsepower junkie, fashion goes out the window 99.9% of the time. LoL…

You would think though that style 87 would be my preferred style for performance. But those 128’s bite hard! She just feels so stable, with the larger contact.

I was just kidding. Your truck has the power to drag those things around just fine. I think BMW offered the 128's in silver as well as chrome. And I prefer chrome to gloss black any day. Black wheels are the devil.

And I feel you on the 325's... though mine are of the 20" variety. Yours are infinitely cheaper and easier to find in 21".

I forgot to post this but I found these on CL about 3 months ago and picked them up for the E61 5er. They aren't staggered as I would prefer, but they'll look just fine with a small spacer in the rear. Pretty rare so I couldn't resist picking them up...
