I used the spare wheel from my old E46 330i. It was a space saver, I only ever used it to hold the car up whilst I took one of the wheels to sort out a leaky tyre valve. But you can pick them up cheap on eBay. I'd make sure you get one for a 6 cylinder to ensure it clears brakes etc.

We had the graphite graphics & were due to have the stripes fitted before we decided to upgrade to a new 320d.

Shame as I think it would have really set the car off

We modified a socket to tighten one of ours after a refurb, however we still needed a helpful forum member to fix the issue.

I wouldn't want to touch them again, the wheels are as soft as butter!!

What!!!!! I would have been tempted by this had it gone up last month...

Sadly we have treated ourselves to something else.

Good luck with the sale

We didn't like the bright silver, so in some lights you can barely see it.

We'd seen no 97 a long time ago & the B3 that Ade replaced it with which is why we went with that colour

I really don't think they work on the classic.

The dynamic looks nice but then that is all black
