Thanks for the positive feedbacks. Everyone has differnt tastes when it comes to rims. No hard feelings....I wanted rims that you dont see everyday on a 750i.

I use Zaino for the paint. Thats the best product! Keeps the paint looking like glass. Everyone 7 looks great. Thanks

rawdog805 we should have the same headlights. Are yours different? Also you can try adobe photo shop to see what the black grille looks like on your 7, which is a nice ride. One thing about the grille, if you do paint it, make sure they powder coat it, because the paint doesnt stick very well, because its some sort of plastic. Any ways good luck. Thanks

in order to make the paint stick, you have to sand down the grill, clean it up nice, put on some layers of black paint, finish with automotive clearcoat. (i did it on my x5, looked 100% legit, and lasted)

I dont think you can powdercoat plastic... only metals...

Not that common set of wheels for a 7 which makes it even nicer
