wheels must be BBS Mahle 7x15 ET13 all around or 6x15 ET13 in the front and 7x15 ET13 in the back
Understeer is when you hit the wall with the front of the car. Oversteer is when you hit the wall with the rear of the car.
Horsepower is how fast you hit the wall. Torque is how far you take the wall with you.

Thanks for all the nice feedback! I am very pleased ...

The last thing I would maybe do is to install a replica of the Alpina exhaust system. Around my hometown there is a company that has plenty of experience with it. What do you think? Should I leave the original exhaust system or at least fit an Alpina exhaust?

@redlinde: The rims are BBS Mahle in 6x15 "front and 7x15" rear with 195/50/15 and 205/50/15 Vredestein tires.

Safe journey to eveyone!!

Cheers
Chris

Hey uwbuurman

sorry for my late answer... yes sure... the car is still fine... all in great shape!! Still have fun with it... but i was thinking about to buy a E28 M535i... so i was close to sell this beauty E21... :bag

but i think about this and came to the end that i will keep it... there is so much work and love in this car... i can't sell it... when i buy a E28 all worksteps are coming once again... know what i mean?! and there are a lot of steps (and of course money) till a car looks like my e21 and i know that... :D

Hey Jeroen

Yes, i will take my time... it don't have to be a M535i... also a nice 3.0 CSI would be nice... oder maybe M3 E30... 2002 Turbo... but the most of these are tooo expensive :-(
After all the work on my E21 i can't sell it... and i know that i never finde one like this again... so i want to keep it... but a 2nd Car Oldie would be nice...

There is another reason to sell my e21... if someone offer me a nice E21 C1 or B6 Alpina :boogie but i think this will not happen :lol:

don't stop dreaming... :sleeping

have a nice time!

Thanks Mate! :thumbsup

there are H&R Springs with 35mm lowering and Bilstein Sport Suspension installed... i think this is a very nice combination... it's sporty but not to low... in addition it looks very nice in my opinion... but remember, the Bilstein Sport Suspension is tight... you will fell every hump... so maybe you could choose another Suspension... but for me it's a nice combination... nice to drive with, if you like it sporty

PS: very nice M535i!!! any pics??

cheers
