Thanks are are looking forward to it. By the way did you have the rims powder-coated with the gunmetal when refinishing?

I actually used duplicolor graphite metallic grey, I wanted a glimpse at what it would look like before powdercoating. It's held up very nice without any issues thus far.

There is place behind Classic BMW that does powdercoating. Last time I spoke with him the cost was $125 per wheel with one day turnaround. I decided to use Plasti Dip since I wasn't sure I would like the wheels in any color than original. That was 3 years ago and they still look good. I have done some minor repairs but am amazed how well they have held up.

^Very nice 4.6, I like the wheels.
No center caps though?

One came off when I was power washing the wheels, so I have a new set on order.

Suspension has now settled after a complete overhaul front and rear- she now drives like a dream :thumbup: H&R lowering springs front, Bilstein touring shocks and every other suspension component changed except the rear subframe bushings. All done in my garage without a lift :D
