Nonetheless, its impolite not to introduce myself, ill post pics up later, but she's still a work in progress, and since im 14 and it'll be my first car, i tend to nag my dad about its current state... ( yes, in dint have a job...) since i cant dump most of my 40 bucks into it and get something useful my dad is in charge of when its in good shape. Like i

Garage List
Rims can usually be repaired. Is the rim actually bent, or does it just need some cosmetic work to remove scrapes? Even bent rims can be repaired, but it's harder and might not be worth it.

One of the reasons this forum is so inactive is because all the links to it from the home page are broken- try going to bimmerpost.com and then try to get to the E39 Forum- and good luck- you'll need it. I mentioned this in the "site suggestions" forum many months ago...
