    I gave the wheels on the Coupe a good clean and treated them to the new style centre caps with the chrome rim, new "M" badges and some chrome valve covers and caps.

    I also put on some chrome wheel nut caps but i'm not so sure about them.

    What do you guys think of them??

    Are the chrome caps the plastic type, if so, why cheapen the look to your expensive alloys?

    i got the new m3 wheels on my 318ci and they kind of a shadow chrome, i got some black chrome caps to protect my wheel nuts anf they really set the wheel off! match the colour of the wheel great!!

    maybe it you go a little darker on the wheel nut covers, they might suit the wheel better! still look ok though

    The original car wheel nuts where all rusty and black, looked really shabby. I took them off to sand and paint them but then i saw the wheel nut caps and thought i'd give them a go instead.

    My Bmw MV3 alloy wheels, are becoming a pain to keep clean due to brake dust, even after coating them in car wax.

    I read somewhere on the forum recently about Poorboys alloy wheel sealant, I purchased some a couple of weeks ago, and got to work cleaning the alloys up before giving them a few coats of sealant,they gleam like new again.

    So easy to clean them, the dirt runs off with no trace of brake dust, wish I had been a member of this forum when I had my last Bmw, loads of useful advice on this site!
