Bingo, and Tirerack.

I wasn't kidding when I said I'm saving 40.4lbs over stock. Mitchum 128i uses the same spec RGRs.

what size offset and tires are you using? tire rack says they don't have anything that'll fit our cars.

i believe the e46 fitment should fit(since they aren't listed under 1 series on TR). I got my OZ wheels from an e46 owner, so if you are ever looking for a good deal on expensive rims i would check out the e46 forums.


SIZE: 17 x 8 ET40, 5 x 120, bore size 72.56 (fits E36, E34, E30 M3, and many more)

17x8 ET40. You can find them on BBS' website using the Application Guide.

Random thought: Do you guys think BMW will release any Performance Kit upgrades like it did for the e46 330i at end of life cycle?
Would be nice to get a differential or some kind of cam upgrade.

No chance in hell. BMW of today is nothing like BMW of the E46 era.

Plus, the N52 is long since dead to them. They're just running down the clock till the next generation of cars arrives.

And with their arrival, BMW will no longer make a single product that I desire to own.

I agree with you on that. My next car is almost certainly going to be a BRZ sti version or the like in the future. BMW can't seem to comprehend low power, low weight. not high power, high weight.

Having owned one, keep the 128i.

1er will never leave. Will be driven until the motor takes a dump, then i'll transplant in something fun and turn it into a dedicated track car. Hopefully that's not for a long time! I've already put 15k miles on my car in the passed 7 or 8 months i've owned it. Almost passed 40k.
