    Hi, I have just given an old dog a new lease of life. My 1997 Z3 has a pretty good engine with 87K miles. I have treated it to new roof, refurbed wheels, vinyl wrap and new badges ,handles, aerial etc. It is a 1.9 140 hp model (title is incorrect)

    Hi guys, I'm installing the BMW carbon spoiler onto my F32 this week and have looked around the many places you can buy 3M tape. I'm wondering if you guys have a recommendation as to which tape to buy for the spoiler install? What have you used? Cheers

    Hey guys! So after searching for months for a used or a cheaper version of performance spoiler, i finally bought one! I couldn't justify buying a genuine bmw one for nearly £400 quid and didn't want to wait a month and pay customs for the Chinese version, so I managed to find a UK Seller! Next...

    Today was the day to restore the paint. Since this was the first time that we've done this, ("we" being my brother in law and I) went overboard and went for the more expensive but reputable 3M brand. We washed and masked the car up completely which took about 4 hours (3 people yesterday, 1...

    Been trying to find a carbon wrap that looks like real resinned carbon but everything that's glossy just has no depth to it if you know what I mean, so thought if you do some Di noc wrap with clear film it would give you some depth? Thoughts?

    a quick recommendation for the 3m headlight restoration kit. the headlights on my e60 had degraded badly. four hours later they look like new. would have taken forever if i had done it by hand. only slight gripe was that the kit could have done with a few more 500 grit pads. i removed the...

    The reason I ask is that I went to go view the car I'm intending to buy today and it had the black carbon cube trim (:D). However the lower part of the steering wheel trim is quite badly worn and could do with a bit of tlc. Originally the plan was to wrap all the trim in the 3M CF stuff but as...

    My interior parts were pretty worn and showing their age, ie finger abrasion, general flaking of the coatings and places where acid off peoples fingers were taking its toll etc. I planned on doing the 3M di-noc carbon fiber vinyl (textured) thats quite popular. Never used the stuff before but...

    Has anyone used, or know anything about 3M Carbon Fiber Vinyl? This is the official site, here they speak of vehicle wrapping, but you can buy the stuff in sheets or on a roll. http://solutions.3m.co.uk/wps/portal/3M/en_GB/GraphicSolutions/VehicleWrapping/Homepage/carbonfibrevinyl I'm...
