I think I could have found a way of liking it if the rims were left black. Not my car so my opinion means pretty much nothing. Enjoy it if you like it.

I'm surprised the shop didn't remove the tires before painting the lip. I can't imagine that's gonna hold up well when your tires need replaced.I don't mind mind the look though... It's different.

The brakes are fine, but the rest is starting to look a bit Pep Boys.

I want to PC my calipers, but don't wanna have the car down or do the work to take em off etc so F it I wonder if simply painting the Brembos will hold up the same as painting your normal ugly calipers...

I love the brakes and decal but the thick pinstripe is too much for me, I think in all gloss black it would look crispy clean. Nice job though. I had the calipers of Panamera Turbo done before I traded it in too... been considering doing it on the F80,

Thanks for all of the feedback - good, bad, indifferent; it's all good

The tires were popped when masking and painting the edges, you just can't tell when they were masked up.

My side blades are carbon fiber, and Porsche puts a black GTS decal which is virtually invisible from far away so I actually had a set of GTS badges painted at the same time and removed the decal

I had a set of satin black BBS CH-R on my e92 (up for sale actually) and didn't want the all black look anymore so I took a risk. If I get tired of it I can always respray. That's the benefit of having IND/A&L in my backyard

i think you missed the point of adding neon contrast. the point is to make things POP out.....adding the green to the wheels ruins the entire effect of putting it on the caliper. Even worse is that your shades of neon don't match..
