Yeah, E55. That's how much a normal paint job goes for these days if color is Metallic. Thankfully, I got all the little white stuff out the paint and it looks good as new. Inspected the car inch by inch and it's all good.

With these type of people you can't get angry. Just gotta walk away and enter with the law. It was very hard though, trust me.

I don't know man but you got the patience of a saint. If that punk told me he was going to curb rash my rims if I didn't pay him, I'd freaking punch him dead in the face. I wouldn't even think about it, the punch would be a natural reaction to his duchebagery. It's like he finishes his sentence and BAM, face meet fist. In the end I'm glad you were able to get your car up to spec.

Haha, thanks. I just didn't want problems and this guy was kind of the type of guy that didn't have much going on for him, so perhaps being in jail would had been a benefit and I didn't want to get hurt.

I should have, but I'm in my 20s, and more than likely the cop would had not give a f**k indicating that the wheels were done for what was promised.

Finally today got it all done. The method I used was.

1. Bucket Wash - Fully 4 Wheels (This Cleared all the active removal dust)
2. Clay The Wheels - This removed the semi active dust, dirt, crap.
3. Wax the wheels - Waxed them individually, took a few days. It took off all the germs embedded in he new paint.
4. Seal & Polish - Got this done to let the new dust to shake away from the wheels.

At last, the wheels look brand new now. No Curbs, no rashes, and fixed the dirt embedded in the paint.

Looks like A Plus Detailing ( Ali Shafei ) ruined another person's wheels as well.

Thanks, Nada Guides Private for the car was $32,800. So I figured 18K worth of mods, Service C (700), Full Brake Job ( 3500 ), New Tires ( $1000 ) it's well above 23K so in reality it would be 32,800 + 23K = $55,800. Even at 36,888, my price is negotiable. We'll see

Yeah, it is a great deal. I drove one of those a while back and was amazed at how fast they were for sedans. It should sell easily, might take a bit longer as the economy is in the tank, but considering the mods - the price is point on.
