oh. I am not sure about painting them, you would just want to make sure they are cleaned good before you painted them, otherwise just mask them off carefully and spray paint it.

If you didnt want to do that, I have used Forever Black, I got mine from Bavarian Autosport, but I am sure you can find it other places, it is a water based dye that puts black pigment back into trim/rubber parts on the car. If the trim is really faded it will take a number of coats, but it works really well and seems to last a long time. It is like a midpoint between just using a detailing dressing and full on repaint for trim, but it does work nicely if you are worried about painting the trim.

My Ride: needs more power
Picking my car up from the paint shop today, Mtech2 front bumper installed. Saw it this morning and they did a really nice job. I had to purchase the front trim piece to fit a US plate thanks to a vendor who over a month after the bumper order was placed still won't send one to me as promised (they sent a euro plate trim piece), and who now won't return emails or phone calls. My bumper has cost $43 more now thanks to those

At any rate, it will be nice to finally have the car back!

Anyone have a pic of a touring with an M3 bumper? I've been scouring this thread but found nothing. Then again, 55 pages is a lot of searching. Search function didn't come up with anything. TIA.

Beautiful! Imola interior and 5-speed with ZHP knob...rare!

Also style 72(?) wheels are for sure not stock

Get rid of those ambers are you'll be looking even better!
