Well done Boris. You seem to have a way of turning the OEMs into a great looking set of wheels.

A cousin like you would be nice. Second pair of hands for modding always helps

Thumbs up

nicely done bro. I'd like to try that to fix a couple of scratches on my winter wheels (coupe's 18"). do you know how to mix the paint to get the hyper black?

nice job vodka.

I'd also say that the next step should be springs

I would say go with the coupe sport springs. I do not think they throw your allignment out of adjustability...I am not positive about it, but if it was true than I am sure it certainly qualifies as a budget mod especially as you can prob pick em up for less than 80-100 + self instal

LOL You guys missed the point! The whole DIY spread was done so Vodka could get a chance to force us to see the pic of his new M. Cheap shot!!

NICE DIY. My friend is a mechanic (do they still call them that?) at Peter Pan.

Thanks for all the positive comments. Boris & I worked hard (and late into the night) to get it done just perfectly.

Boris definitely has mod-fever and my hunger for it is growing by the minute - definitely look forward to us posting our Gloss Black grill DIY in the coming days/weeks/whenever as well as whatever else we come up with.

As a side note to anyone who might be considering this, try to do this during the warm months/days/nights - it didn't help us at all that it was at-or-below freezing the entire time we were working and the primer/paint/clear was drying.

Good to see you're not totally abandoning the crew, Boris. I'm guessing you're gettin your mod fix with other cars to keep from putting your hands on the M until it's time.
Calcul8: The wheels look good, nothing like a slight color/body change to alter your look without changing the "oem" appearance. It will look great after the drop, watch out 'cause you'll be well on your way to spending more than $100 a pop on mods after that. You've been warned.
