Plasti Dipped my rims...

After contemplating whether to dip my rims or not I finally decided to pull the trigger. Outcome was great love the look, iphone pictures don't do the car justice, it looks way better in person. Do not mind the 335i logo as its not straight. sorry pictures will be big as usual.

ahhhh...i wanna plastidip mines and add a layer of glossifier to make it semi gloss.

PLease reconsider the red caliper. IMO stock caliper in red is somewhat tacky, exterior color matching would look very nice. just IMOIMOIMO.

+1... not only does it look dirty. It looks like a donut from a distance. Can't even tell what wheel design it is.
