...did you say Boge Sport Shocks? Are they the same as the Boge Turbo Gas shocks I've heard of, or does Boge make two different types of shocks for the E34? I was told by Bavarian Auto to get Bilstein Sports if I wanted to lower the car, as they thought the Boge wouldn't be stiff enough to prevent the springs from bottoming out. Who recommended these shocks to you?

BTW, after reading your post a few weeks back about ordering the radial spoke wheels from I ordered some 16" 750i radial spoke wheels the same day. I looked for wheels for nearly six months, and after seeing these 7 series wheels (and after being reassured by several people that E38 wheels fit on an E34) I knew I needed to buy them. Good price, quality OEM wheels, friendly service (by Jason) and the wheels will be here in plenty of time for spring. I have snow tires on my stock 20 spoke wheels, and with 8-10" of new snow on the ground here in eastern PA, I'm pretty happy I have the snows right now. Although I knew about before reading your post, you gave me a timely reminder...thanks.

Here's a link to a photo gallery that has lots of great pics of new BMWs. I found the 16" 30 spoke radial style wheels in the section with the E38 stretched limo. There's pics of the 18" wheels you bought in the E38 section too.

'93 525i
