Need some help in Atlanta

Hey guys Just bought a AW 335 e92 and wanted to get the following things done:

- Vinyl the rooftop black
- Change the Fog lights
- Paint the brake calipers may be to black.

Was wondering if anyone of you have done these before or if you can point me to a good shop in the area. BTW I live in midtown and am planning to get this done next weekend.

Thanks.

I can change the fog lights for you but the other ones require more skill and patience than I have.

Check out hoen bulbs. I have them, just haven't got around to putting them in because of work. They are supposed to be color matched to the headlights if that is what you are looking for

Checked out their website and looks like they are more into graphc designing and vehicle graphics...Couldnt find anything in the gallery where they wrapped a car...Not sure if it would be a good idea.

Painted brake calipers are actually not so hard. Im not really a arts/crafts type, but I was able to paint my calipers. You can pick up a Duplicolor caliper paint kit from any autoparts store for about 20 bucks. They are actually pretty good. It comes with a pint or so of paint and a brush. Just get some brake cleaner and clean them off and you can just brush them up without removing them. Seems to still be holding up fine on my car.
