In Reply to: I GOTTA get some 20's on mine.....too cooL! posted by Big-T on June 26, 2001 at 11:40:46:

20's look nice, but if you live in a state with potholes (ie Minnesota) be aware that 20's are extremely High maintenance. I store the 7 during winter and send the 20's out to have them straigtened each year ... it's a pain because i have yet to find a good wheel shop

Finally got pictures up of my black 97. Modifications as follows (from previous post) The idea with the black shadowline trim is to black out the car completely with now chrome remaining except the grill

Current modifications...

20x9 Racing Dynamics wheels [$550x4] $2200
255/35/20 Yokohama AVS sport [$320x4] $1280 tirerack
H&R lowering kit $250 tirerack
Clear turn signals (side and front and rear) ~$450 Bekkers
Alpine GPS ~$1500 used from friend
Tint $250

Currently in progress and should be completed within 2 weeks ...

Shadowline trim [from 2000 740il sport - replaces chrome window trim and door trim with black], ~$500
chrome grill from 2000 750il $70
Xenon H1 bulb conversion $600
Refinish and repair wheels in satin polished color (M5 wheel)
