    Fucking hell man... you have some shitty luck with long-distance purchases. It's a shame, those wheels look dope on an E38. Do you guys use paypal or something like that? Because if not, you should start.

    So we had a meeting today to find a solution...

    He told me the whole story and offered me a new set of wheels if I pay the finish on them..

    Now I just have to find some design I like..

    I am one of those humans that having a choice is way more difficult than getting what is already there..

    Did I make sense?

    Suggestions for wheels will be appreciated.. help this soul

    Have him buy a set of those wheels you originally paid for?

    None of these are "game-changers" or anything, so I guess it depends on your goals for the car, but I think they all look clean and classy, and they're plentiful enough to find without having to deal with shady sellers. Besides that, an E38 is a rare enough car (at least a rare enough build) that it doesn't require anything particularly "unique" to stand out and look good. Maybe that's just me. But there's no sort of "standard recipe" E38 builds like there are with more common platforms.

    At the very least, these are good "interim" wheels while you search for your dream set.

    I may be a boring guy but I think a 20" OEM set, maybe something concave like X5 wheels or something like style32s would look the best without breaking the bank or being hella rare to find

    ID definitely go with a mesh/large spoke count wheel. The imola red one looks FANTASTIC on the BBS LM's.

    I love the work wheels, that car is one of my favorite e38s...

    I certainly not looking to break the internet or anything like that.. I like to lay low... in all the ways it means.

    Rennen will be cutting the wheels so I have been checking their designs and I liked this one
    http://www.d3wheels.com/uploads/whee...5-polished.jpg

    I didn't embed the image because it is too big.

    It will be that or a custom one off design..

    In the end.. I will be getting new wheels with any finish I want and new tires..

    might as well.. I will change my view of things.. Instead of feeling down for not getting some wheels, I'm getting the opportunity to get new wheels.

    be positive... be positive

    ^^ that is a nice design. I'd be sorely tempted to go with a gloss dark gold/bronze finish on the centers like the HREs you were supposed to get. Would look amazing.

    The wheels on the Imola car are reps. I know the owner. But it has a supercharged S62 under the hood.

    car is in storage as the business where it was closed... ( wonder why.... )

    I have been sumped in depression and have not really done anything car related on the past months.. I think this a thing that happens to all of us when we lose motivation and that is why threads just disappear into the void.

    however, this car is still pretty much one of my favorite cars ever, so it will be finished... I just have not searched for a new place to finish the job.

    Paint has some flaws, it did not end up like I wanted... like anything is... ha...

    I was asked if I wanted to repaint or wait till I finish building it, so I just took the opportunity to get it out of there.

    Supposedly car will be ready to pick up this Friday. will that be true? or true in what condition?... gotta wait till Friday I guess.

    I'm going there today later after work.. will snap a couple of pictures and post them.

    Cheers
