Mein Auto: '02 M3 SMG & '08 135i
Update . . .

It's been a few weeks since the wheels were painted.

Naturally I could feel the difference in the surface between the old clear coat and where the new paint had been applied. I used some Meguair's Deep Crystal (marketing ) Polish, which yes I know is from the cheap commercial line (maroon bottles), but in this case I was looking for a very MILD polish - which this stuff is so that Joe Schmoe (or me) doesn't take his clear coat off with it. I worked with the paint polish a while (and with that stuff, it took a while) and finally got it nice and smooth. Put some wax on top and now, not only can you not see the difference between the old paint and the new, I can't feel the difference.
