Talking Finally Got My Rims On!

I finally got my rims on, one was out for a long time getting repaired...i hope to get a replacement this summer anyway.

my car is comming along nicely and should be ready for bimmerfest shortly...i just have to spray my ground effects and bumpers for now until i can buy a body kit.

Nice rims! What are they 17"?
P.S. you do need to paint the bumpers/sides, it will look much better!

They're 18x8.0 rims with Pirelli supersports on them right now (dunno if i like the tires much, but oh well)


i have found places that'll do my skirts and bumpers but i didn't get a quote yet. I might just get a body kit on when i have a grand to drop on the car again. My car needs some areas repainted anyways because my car got brutally keyed last year and i havent had the time or money to get it fixed yet. I feel i should probably get everything done in one shot to save money in the long run.

i'm disputing between the reiger kit or hamann though =/

Djcontra....when you paint the front end, make sure they use a special primer...I think its called "vinyl wash" I dont think the sides need it...but the front and back do. (thats what i was told at the dealer) Just ask about it.

do you know what this stuff does? does it make the bumper have more strength?

i am probably going to get some of that 3M clear vinyl tape and custom cust it to fit whatever body kit i get so i can protect the paint against rock chips.

only problem is, that i've noticed on some cars that have that stuff, wax gets caught along the seams of the tape and looks bad (at least on a black car)

The vinyl wash is just a pimer that goes onto bare metal to prevent rust formation. At my shop every car I prime, I use the vinylwash first. But like I said you only need to use it if there is bare metal showing. I dont think you need to ask for it ...
they'll put it on if need.. Also vinyl wash does not go on bumpers(no plastics,fiberglass etc...just metal
