    Interesting little fact: Only 17,000 325ix were made and we had two of them there. Same color and number of doors!

    I can understand why people might want a garage queen but they were made to be driven!

    :nono: only 2,647 325iX in the US. And yes I've been to the 325iX section, pretty slow moving forum. Still has posts from 2005 on the 1st page :eek3: I'm glad you asked the wheel offset question though, as I've asked on almost every other BMW forum and am getting different answers all over the place.

    Wow i didn't know it was that little. Its funny because one of my friends has the same exact ones, what are the odds?!

    But yeah the 325ix section was just made last month, and Chris (admin) towed all the 325ix threads there to fill it out. I always ask questions there and then I PM Nando over at R3VLimited.com because he is a 325ix expert.
