My Ride: gets DRIVEN.

Latest shots of the threezy. w0rk's are finished and on.

Finally finished up refinishing the wheels and getting them installed. The faces are raw aluminum with a clearcoat, and the lips are polished with anodized-style blue bolts (steel can't really be anodized). I know I have a lot of different colors going on, but I change the sticker theme and such quite often anyways. Sorry for the low quality pics... resized them using this quick software thing and it F'd them up.

wheel build thread is here: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthr...t=complete+diy

wheel specs are 17x9.5 et34f et37r with hankook ventus v12 evo 255/40/17 all around.

edit: saw the porsche meister thread and decided that I couldn't live with the sh1tty quality, resized in PS now

Is that the AA exhaust? I really like everything. Any plans for a center cap?

IMO I don't like it at all. The stickers, the blue, the tiny reeeems.

i like it, but i can't help but think how it would look with the faces in blue, matching the rivets.

nicely done as usual
