will that be for powder coating a base coat and then painting a top colour and then a lacquer?

i'm not sure what my indicative price of 300 entailed.. I will investigate!

A local place does a special on gloss blacks each Fruday, I need to pop over with a picture for some options.
Interestingly enough, I was wondering on this when I originally ordered the CP as I couldn't get on the wheels at first so looked at my options.

I did a bit of Photoshopping to get close to what I thought mine would like with the wheels and then make them a bit darker.
Are there any more photos of this car?

Completely with you on that one Washy. Just as well they are ceasing production of it this month (at least for M3 and M4's) for good.....

I'm tempted to say you should leave the wheels alone. The car really looks stunning as is. Big congrats!

Another couple of weeks and the forum will be awash with SMB, what with Washy getting his M4 and then me getting my M3 CP. You'll be absolutely sick of them by end of April.

Thx mate, v. Kind of you! I love the way it looks too. I find myself looking back after I park it up and when I start her up in a car park I feel that warm, smug, cocky glow about me about how understated the car I'm driving is... It really is the car that commands respect and admiration to fellow lovers of awesome( pls excuse the Americanism ) pieces of auto machinery that make you feel alive and grateful to be driving a bit of kit as good as this! Bang for buck ( as they say) this car is simply perfect!
