    Yes its available across the three series sport models. I saw a 330d with EB yesterday. Pending a response from BMW on the refund for my EB on the M3.

    I am going to Peterborough today to buy new rims. Can somebody tell me won't be 225/40/18 too big. I mean this 225? Won't it touch edges when I'll turn wheel?
    According to http://www.miata.net/garage/tirecalc.html it will be 0.8% too slow. It's ok, but what about touching edges?
    I need very quick answer.

    Thank you

    what size alloys do you have at the mo?

    I should think 225/40/18 would NOT be a problem, in fact i think thats the recommended tyre profile for 18s on the audi

    unless its lowered i dont think you would get a rubbing problem either

    the only car the rims will rub with 18s on is the A2

    other than that

    teh a3,a4,a6,a8 all are fine with the 18s on.

    laurra-the tyre size is worked out so- the 18 is the 18" radius of the rim/wheel. 225 is the width in mm of th tyre. the 40 part related to the depth of the tyre

    Thank You, but I knew all that. I was just asking: won't it be too wide?

    But I know now that it won't be /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Thanks /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif

    Whoah! What's the rush?! If you need answers to these questions before you buy your new rims, why not do the obvious, and wait a few days?

    Peterborough will still be there on Saturday, won't it?

    Sorry, I just had few minutes to get answer. I went there yesterday and ordered some. I'll get them just in the end of April, because they didn't have that particular type.

    But instead I tinted my windows today /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    But not the ones who knows what they want? And won't be happy with something else instead? /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    Oh... I bought a navigation system as well. Looks cool /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smirk.gif Didn't plan to buy it, but I love it and I love when I buy a good thing without thinking /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif

    On the contrary. There's no point buying what you don't want, just cos what you do want isn't in stock. /ubbthreads/images/graemlins/beerchug.gif
