I think my wheels are the same as the ones fitted to your car in the pictures.Mine are BBS Mahle 6x15 4x100 pcd.the center hole is 60mm in diameter the offset is ET13.with that in mind,if your centercaps are 60mm fitment then i could ,perhaps,get them from BMW.Would i be asking too much for you to let me know the part number of your centers :oops: .By the way,the car looks absolutely fantastic.You can't beat a red E21!!
There's one out there with my name on it.

Update: I have the BBS RMs built, have 20mm spacers for the front since I tried 8mm and they are way too small.
I have a powdercoated DINAN adjustable subframe, and the new engine is just about complete. I will be dropping the 2.9 m20 in soon.

For those of you who have asked I anticipate it to be at least 220 HP. I have the following Mods:
Competiton port and polished 885 head
Plus 1 Ferrara Valves
Steel Race Rocker arms that I cyroed.
Stage 2 274 reground cam
Metric Mechanic Behive valve springs with lighter valve retainers.
S50 crank, S50 Rods, custom 85 mm weisco Metric Mechanic Style pistons
524 turbo diesel oil pump

I may need someone's help in the UK in sourcing a DIBILAS Intake M20 manifold. This will be in a year or so,
for the time being I am going to extrude hone the 325 intake manifold...

I have 19lb injectors, 11 pound 325i flywheel that has been lightened, and Motronic ECU with Miller WAR Chip.

I will post up after the swap, with some videos...

Thanks for the compliments.... :D


Ordered the MILLER WAR CHIP and 3 inch MAF today.
I need to get a Southbend Kelvar stage II clutch and extrude hone the intake manifold.
I found out that the powdercoaters had left glass beads in the intake manifold, and its very harmful to the engine, its been cleaned. I am sending intake manifold out to be extrude honed....

Quess whats under wraps...2.9 m20 :thumbsup :mrgreen:
