Re: 3 years and never been spotted...

I know why too... It's because I'm usually travelling far too quickly :wink: Although a B10 3.3 found me one day and was all winks, horn and thumbs...my mother said "do you know him?"...I said "No. Just Alpina..." :lol: Have you thought it might be the fact that no one likes you :lol: :lol: Only ki...

There's a firm that does powder coating,can't remember the name of them but their first building on the left as you exit the roundabout into Foxhills estate hap.
I've had a few things done there but not wheels and what I've had done has been spot on.

I too have never kerbed the wheels and i think i'm correct in saying that (Michelin tyres deffo) most tyres now have a raised lip around the tyre wall for just this reason so unless you go in hard there shouldn't be any damage.

Don't know about fitment but in my experience copy panels never fit well.

Looks like a bargain if they are straight. Not sure I like the change of colour though. We got a couple of refurbed rears given us when we bought the B3. Still in the boxes. The only problem is that they have been finished in sparkly silver, so don't match what we have on the car. Soo,your saying y...
