    I love dakar yellow on an e36, happy with my Estoril too though. Lots of nice cars here, what are those BBS wheels on the boston green coupe Nugs? Like the look of them a lot!

    Nearly chose a Dakar M3 back in the day, Dino ended up with it about 8 years later only to be written off by its next owner in a fire. But for me it’s Santorini.
    Had a 1999 328i individual in that colour and it was mega. In the mid 00’s I sourced an M3 in it but it was a dog so walked away.
    Would love a late 500 e92.. one day.

    Don't think these are BBS.

    There are now so many brands, known and unknown / rep makers that do tons of variants on old basket weave / Y-spoke wheels.

    Oh right cheers. Centre caps looked like they said BBS. Just liked them with the lip a lot of them don't have.

    I if they are RK then in that size and offset they are an rk005 and i am surprised you managed to get then under a standard arch :thumbsup:

    I absolutely hate Dakar yellow. It’s the type of colour you might paint a baby’s room if you didn’t know what you were having. It manages to be both camp and vulgar at the same time. Truly horrendous. I’d imagine that most people see you driving a Dakar yellow sports car are going to form some pretty strong opinions about what type of person you might be pretty quickly.

    BBS RK gives me tons of hits, but these don’t even slightly resemble the rims pictured.

    I have bbs RK's on my track car, as they are very very light. (7kgs) they are RK005 8.5 et 15.

    Granted mine needed a spacer the clear the brakes and they are on 255's but they stick out a fair old way.

    That looks the business :thumbsup:
    Mine say RK003

    Guards aren't rolled. decent amount of camber, rear is pretty high and no guard liners in the front.


    Picture is back. Previous owner set them up. I am thinking smaller tyres next time so it can go a bit lower in the rear and I can put the front guard liners back in.

    What?

    The rims on the touring. That’s the only pic I saw.
    I was already like...these don’t even come remotely close.
