Felt like I needed a change...so I Plasti-dipped my OEM 219Ms Satin Black. So glad I did, looks super tough and beefy! Gonna keep this look for awhile for sure.

Recently did a super quick photoshoot because I can't stop staring at it...Enjoy the pics everyone!

That made my day, I feel better knowing you didn't get rid of those rims. Feel free to sell them to me if you love you black 18s so much =)

And when I ordered my Canadian M3, the 19" were 2,000$ + 12% tax extra vs. the 18's. I couldn't justify this cost when the tire width didn't even increase.

Love the stock 18's. The color matches perfectly with your car, makes it look like a beast.
