Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the items information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item is worth.

-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it is currently at and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-Post a price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires
-Post the brand and model
-Post as many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. If tires, any gashes, bubbles, cupping and curb rash

-As many pictures as possible of every wheel

WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post what you are willing to pay. Only douchebags will bump up their price if your price is higher then theirs.
-Where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup only


In case the point was not made, everything being sold must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist. Do not post links to either for your ad. The same goes for other forums. Either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, please stay out of the thread or else be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Only bump your thread once a day. You are allowed to respond to others more then once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

        The front middle bolt hole is slightly off so I could not use the metal insert. I may drill it over a bit in the future so I can use it but with the rubber grommet in there (and a washer) plus the other 4 in their perfectly I am not too worried about it.

        Weird... I don't recall having that problem with mine. IIRC, it installed with minimal fitment issues, ALMOST as clean as stock.

          I think hit or miss, I saw a few others with the same problem. Its not off by much, maybe 2mm. Other than that it was perfect!

            The 318i/iS tank is different because its a smaller capacity AND its setup a bit differently. You can of course switch out to the larger tank you just need to rearrange the fuel lines.

                BM1A fits the 318is. Installed one earlier this year with little fuss. I had the same issue with the bolt hole not lining up perfect, but was still able get it tightened up without opening any holes. Way nicer than an OEM one filled with rust.

                Also, I was able to get it shipped from Autozone for only $153.29 due to some online 20% off on anything over $100 or something like that plus free shipping.

                  Looks exactly like the tank I put in the rallycross ix after I smacked it on a rut, killed the pump, and tore the rusty tank removing the pump. Fun day.

                  My center bolt hole was also slightly off. I never installed that bolt. Whatever. Works great. I think I got mine for $180 shipped.

                    Hey guys, just FYI rock auto has spectra tanks as well, but they are only $204 shipped instead of $224 shipped from amazon (which will be even more expensive I believe if you don't have prime).

                      I ordered the BM1A Spectra reproduction tank from Rock Auto for my current restoration. I'm generally against aftermarket shit, but finding a factory tank that isn't caved in or nasty inside had proved very difficult.

                      Side by side with the real deal you're hard pressed to complain. It does come coated in some silver finish which looks desperately out of place. I have mine powdercoated satin black along with all the other undercarriage bits and once installed it should pass for original less the drain plug.

                      I gave $180.78 shipped for it, powdercoat was another ~175.

                        Put a few Large tanks in earlier cars with from Spectra. New hardware and all, mounting holes seem to be a little off.. If you take your time tightening the hardware it works out, just tight.

                          I'm going to have to do this too. BMW should have put a "DO NOT JACK, JACKASS" sign on both sides of the fuel tank.:hitler:

                                Compare to the Spectra fuel tank, anyone has experience about this tank ?
