Haha he just joined and already set up his garage with pics! Most members don't even set up their garages...he must be a true fanatic. He's already got the forum addiction.

So Welcome!

Your mom has good taste in cars. When you turn 16, buy some clears for it. Leave the wheels alone.

the cheapest and easiest way to get a gunmetal color on your stock wheels is to not wash your wheels and let the brake dust collect on them... mine are gunmetal half the time...

I've got 4 stock wheels from my 02 325i for sale that I had powder coated gunmetal.....not right for your car I guess, but if you want to see what it would look like, look in my garage....

FYI, powder coat on all four cost $200....I decided afterwards that I wanted something flashier...
