KingCast bags a 533i rim for the 535i, and period-correct BBS rims to boot!

Every old Bimmerhead worth his or her salt will tell you the BMW 533i hoop is better than the 535i deal. Having owned one of each all I can say is I'm so glad I found the older one, whooo-hah! I'll need to recondition the leather a bit but it will work just fine. The horn is actuated by those almond-shaped flats on the top of the cross-bar, just press with your thumb. This wheel is as much art as it is functional, and it was only made for 2 years for some reason.

Update: Then I found a set of these obviously well-sorted BBS rims with a coupla' good tyres on the cheap. All Good.
