Perfect. I have a red billet theme started and thought about the red lettering myself. Now I'm sold.

Re: What did you do to your WK2 SRT today?

Well, since it was 85 out today, figured I'd give it a wash and detailed one wheel so far...
There was a haze left by the Armor All Wheel Protectant I used a few months ago. I washed, dried, clayed (Griot's wheel clay), polished (Mothers Mag&Aluminum Polish w/Power Ball), and sealed (Griot's paint sealant). It is slick as butter. Hopefully this will keep the brake dust from sticking. Tomorrow I'll tackle the other three.

Does the paint sealant prevent brake dust from sticking to the wheels ?

Nice job! I have a 325i and the brakes are excellent. Unfortunately, like the Brembos, the pads are fairly soft and make a lot of dust. I try to keep them sealed with Opti Seal and that at least makes them wash off easier
