Thanks. How should I put this. I do adore a clean e30m3 like the one above but I know I could never own one. There is no point owning a beat up e30m3 so a clean e30m3 to me would have to be a garage queen. I wouldn't have the heart to drive a mint e30m3 and that just goes against the whole M philosophy. So in a way I prefer the E46M3 because you can actually use it without feeling sorry but there is definately more centimental value in the E30M3.

That's what I've been planning to do. Once I swap over my winter wheels in a few months, I'll take these apart and have the faces brushed and topped with clear. I'm also considering having them anodized a light titanium finish though.... Can't wait

A couple quick shots during my break...

Thanks Ex - as always, yours too - pictures of it in the garage/storage place have been used many times by me to show people what the wider wheels would look like when we were doing the build

If I were to have an E46 touring... and had to mod it, it would be a spitting image of that^

Absolute perfection. I love your modding style sir

What colour are your LMs currently. Is that like a blue-gray? I was wanting to paint mine a similar colour, almost like a gray denim.

Sorry, I wish I knew. The Previous owner painted them and all that I was told was that it's a metallic gray... I don't know exactly what shade it is, however, it does have a slightly "denim" look to it. I'll try to snap a couple closeups for you sometime this weekend or next
