Thanks to all members for info acquired over the months prior to
delivery of my M3. I am interested in using Zaino products, and have a stupid question. I assume M3's have factory clear coat over paint. True or not, specifically for Jet Black. Zaino site has different products for cars with and without clearcoat paint.

previous '95 Alpine White/Black E36

Now '03 Jet Black/Imola Red/Aluminum E46
HK, Premium Package, Cold Weather Package
SMG II, Dinan 19 inch, Bridgestone S03 175/30 f
185/30 r
Hardwired V1
Sometimes regret not getting Nav to fill out console.

Look at detailing section on BMW main page. There is so much info on Zaino you wouldn't believe it. Car looks great, what do you think of that aluminum trim?

and 285, not 175 and 185 for tires in your sig. I envy those Dinans. IMO you should lower it a little. Considering the investment in the wheels, investment for coilovers may not be an issue for you :)

Really like it. Provides nice contrast to Imola red/ black in interior.
Others like it ,too. Too soon to know anything about upkeep/problems.

Imola but Cinnamon, only in pictures. Now that you have Imola with Carbon Black, what do you think?

they look really good in that pic..

Why's it upside down ?

Sweet wheels, Imola red/alum is a great choice for interior with a black car. Very nice. <br><img src="">

Salesman put on upside down, didn't catch it till I took the pics.

Really happy with combo. Red is really deep in color.
Cinnamon looks real nice in cars I've seen, but I like the red and
think it is seen less frequently in cars.

Fronts are 9.5 wide and rears are 10? Right? What's dinan selling them for? Thanks

I have a JB cab and you won't believe how "wet" the paint looks after you apply it. BTW, after the 4th coat it REALLY starts to get deep and look awesome. AND it requires fewer washings becuase nothing sticks to Zaino.<br>

9.5 front and 10.0 rear. They are expensive. Around 5000 for four wheels from dealer. Was initially looking at 3 piece HRE's but they
were closer to 6000 and 6 pounds heavier at each corner. The Dinans
weigh less than 20 pounds each and the lightness is really impressive when you pick one up.
