Ooh, thank you I love my blingy summer wheels too
Not you as well... I don't do normal, the boot's very bare without a proper spoiler it makes my baby very individual to me

Today I had my lovely blingly summer wheels taken off and swapped over to the winter ones - needed two new rear tyres so best to get it over with at the same time... I always have Michelin men - this time following advice (thanks guys!) I have Michelin Pilot Sport 4S.

I cleaned my baby this morning (so the summer wheels could be put away clean) and took a few pics of the sparkle before it was gone...

A pic to show the two finishes, mirror polished and powder coated, side-by-side for comparison. I keep meaning to do this when I have them swapped but always forget

And a few pics with the winter ones on and my new rear tyres

That's very good of you to offer what is it and is it straightforward to apply?

Thank you I was enjoying driving around with the roof down today too It was a great day for it wasn't it?
As he was so clean, my mirror wheels were so sparkly in the sunshine, I really didn't want to have them swapped over I had to have the new rear tyres fitted though, and it would have been daft not to do it all together...

I thought I'd share a few pics that I took last week - when I walked up to my car to come home from work, I liked the pattern of the beading that was in the middle of the bonnet! I know... I am a bit sad... I just thought it looked quite cool so then I had a look at the bit at the back too!

Every time I look on this thread I reminisce about my old E36 Vert in Estoril.

You’ve really looked after this one Mandy. Your probably defeating depreciation now.

Does that mean by the time I'm ready to swap for yours, you'll be owing me money?

Thank you, it's lasted quite a while
I'm sure others have better, more uniform beading; but I just liked the pattern on the bonnet bulge I guess some of the rain had rolled off during the day, leaving behind a weird assortment of blobs in the middle
