Well this is really my first time taking any pictures of the M. I bought her about 3 weeks ago. She has roughly 21k miles on her now. Oh yeah, and shes Jet Black, Black Nappa, and Aluminum.

I'm aware shes filthy, but its winter time.

Hope you enjoy them.













They were all slightly edited to the best of my ability in iPhoto. And they were taken with a Canon Powershot SD1400 IS Dig. Elf.

cool.. I had plasti dip my wheels too .. I have 19's....already somehow despite all the care..i manages to slightly rub a curb and took some plastidip rubber off.. I'm surprised though its pretty tough... Cool thing is ill just spray some on that part and voila..back to like new ..

Gotta love plastidip for that. My reason was also that i did not want to permanently powder coat my oem wheels. As you said this is reversible so harm done.

Picture of mine attached...car is dirty as just taking it out for the first time after winter..

Nice car but that front plate kills it, lol. I hated having to run a front plate when I used to live in Jersey, I always stuck it on my dash, haha.

Yeah I got stopped a lot when I was going to school over there, although that was in my red car, blacks and silvers are way more low key. Id give it a shot

Hammy snowboard looks money w those wheels. def ditch the plate at least for the shoot

Yeh, i gave mine 3 coats. Looks pretty dark matt now. I wonder i well it will handle a washing. I assume a gentle wash with soap and a towel to remve the dirt and brake dust etc should not damage the plasti dip coat.
