    my '04 is up on jacks in my garage, and the wheels have been stripped and are now in the hands of a sandblaster/powdercoater and are being colored black to further stealthisize my poor car. just thought it might be an interesting touch. might change the tires now that they're off anyway. i've got 13,000 on the originals, they're wearing well, tho i've heard some fairly damning reports of extreme early wear. it takes 7 to 10 days to complete the job, so i get to ride my bmw m/cycle to work for awhile. life is so tough.

    Be sure to post some pictures when the wheels are back on the car.

    i've got my black wheels on, now i'm trying to figure out where to get or how to "make" as in paint, black lug nuts.
    i think i've posted a picture of the car, now known as the stealth pussy.
    why?,i don't know.
