So, I just picked up a 2008 E92 M3

The left side wheels, both front and rear, have been curbed. I knew this before I bought it. It looks fresh so I'm thinking the dealer did this, not the previous owner. Anyway, are there any recommendations for a good shop around the Baltimore-DC area that could fix this?

Another thing I noticed, after I got the car home, are scratches on the rear plastic bumper under the license. Is there a way to fix this without replacing the bumper? Again, a recommendation for a shop in the area to do this would be appreciated. Thanks.

Cheers.

I've had a good experience with Ye Ole Wheel Shop in Elkridge, MD but some people have had issues.

Congrats on your new ride I have a set of 3 wheels for sale if you'd like to replace your front and rear wheels and have an extra rear wheel as a spare or to resell. They are OEM 19" wheels/tires/TPMS. Check out my thread and feel free to shoot me a PM if interested

if you're just talking just curb rash, rimdoctor will come to you and fix it on the spot. i've had great results in the past with them.

Cool. I just looked them up. I'll give them a call.

I still wish something could be done about the rear bumper.

Cheers.

Of the pics I have, none of them really show it. I'll have to get good a close up pic. Unless you're right on top you can't see it. I guess you could say that I'm slightly anal about such things.
