    Square. Could have got this at pullapart at 30 bux each.

    $1098.88 delivered.

    Not happy but seller is working on it I guess.

    What a disappointment. $120 vs $1098.88

    Trust is a factor, due diligence, If they wont do good pictures then don't buy.

    Seller trying to make it right so we will see.

    I am disgusted with myself for trusting someone.

    More pics, more questions etc.

    Don't be stupid like me is my only statement here guys.

    What do you mean by 'square'?

    These are not OE? Or are they damaged? What's wrong with the rims?

    they are all 8x18, staggered is supposed to have the 9.5x18 in the rear.

    You might be able to see the lip on the rear wheels is wider than the front:

    Ah I see. Yes larger lips are always the loveliest. :-) But I still avoid staggered rims as every puncture is a giant pain. I always end up throwing away good tyres when it comes time to changing one or more- esp as most tyres are directional so can't be swapped to the other side either. Makes for bad fuel economy, etc. etc.

    Tell her-indoors to be practical, not like a bmw engineer ;-)

    Besides, to get the most out of it the rear track needs to come in (a la e34 M5), and the sway bar settings (at least need to be different), else it will understeer or oversteer too much, esp in the wet.

    I just want something different almost been what 8 years? Color change? wheels? something. I don't drive much at all so anything is better than nothing. Can always sell and get others lol.

    Off an E34 site on FB. I got a PP refund but still need to work on Fedex shipping charges against Paypal and the seller. If nothing then I will post ALL info and set the wife free on this. She isn't real cool with scams that cost us money. Neither am I. Seller admitted a mistake and would pay shipping so I am waiting for Fedex bill.

    Paypal is jacked like the DMV or secretary of state. 20 calls, 20 different answers. PP was adamant about the seller paying return shipping on an item significantly not as described but reality is showing something different. As said waiting for the Fedex charges.

    Ebay is easy, if the seller sends the wrong stuff it's up to them to pay shipping for them back.

    Apparently FB marketplace has the same system, seller jacks you and they pay for return shipping. But you HAVE to do the FB pay method and I am not sure how that works yet.

    Paypal is not looking trustworthy now.

    Happy 4th of July weekend.
