give the old wheels some new chrome paint....it looks spectacular immediately

That does look amazing! I never thought of using "Chrome" paint on wheels. Looks almost like a hyper-silver finish. How many coats did you use?

Interesting. Never heard of chrome paint!
Chrome paint isn't really chrome finish, but it has a bright chrome-ish look. (as you can see)

Anybody have any USA cans they recommend for this job?

if the surface is smooth and flat, it gives you *almost* chrome mirror finish...but the wheels are in poor condition, so don't expect anything lol

the photo shows the first layer only. I have sprayed 2 layers and 1 layer of clear coat, will do another clear coat layer and call it a day. It is not my primary wheels anyway.

EDIT: it's funny the clear coat actually turned the chrome paint to normal silver (both wheels turned to OEM silver, different camera angle and both wheels have the same colour)

Okay, it's actually yesterday when I did, nut anyway..

I changed the headlights.
New ones has housing painted gloss black. And the original xenon has been updated to bi-xenon projector from BMW f10.

And also installed LEDs in foglights

Replaced the in-cabin air filter. What a pain in the ass. I always hate doing it because it's in such a bad location.

Got the oil report from Blackstone Labs: I changed the oil after 8,300 miles and everything looks great, so they recommend trying a 10,000 mile interval this next time.

Installed yatour bluetooth aux & hf set.
Music input could be little bit louder, but still I like it.

And also got my new 19" Hyundai rims with 225/35/19 tyres installed
