thanks for the comments folks. Picked-up the rims and tires last night!! The rims are 18" M6 Replicas painted BMW Colour A22 Sparking Graphite!!! They look SICK. With the red calipers, the car should look awesome!

Both the front and sides need to be polished on about 1 week with rubbing compound to bring out the "shine"...

The shirts are the matching set to the fron spoiler. There are others out there that I prefer slightly, but I like that the lines flow around the front and along the sides.... Now, got to find the matching rear lip spoiler from Hamann to complete!!!!

Thanks for the advice on the clear, will do that. Got the front lens coated with clear film last summer after having to replace one due to a stone. Decided, it was easier to replace the film. Has worked great. The lens are still perfect after 20,000km. Pull the film and not a mark on them.

Cobblestone? corner house is mine.... Should recognise the house in the pics then.... stop by next time you're in the area.... Usually outside these days playing with the car...

Ya, did all the prep, paint and installation myself. Bought the spolier and skirts from different people (including spoiler being painted today FINALLY).. All were different colours and had been taken off cars, so there was some work to be done. see attached pic of spoiler being prepped. Ordered paint from US and prepped, painted and installed in my garage.

Actually, Bliss, in my case the front lip IS fibreglass and the skirts are polyurthane!! I would have thought the same as you, but that I can guarentee as I did all the work on them...

The rear spoiler is a BMW factory OE spoiler that I picked-up for $60 in excellent condition, but wrong colour...... That should be going on today or tomorrow.... Think the new wheels are going on in about 30 minutes. Will post new pics when installed.....
