Re: Need advice on what/if to paint...

I just installed black nerf bars today, chrome door strips will be coming off this weekend. I think I will start with getting the rear brow and mirror caps painted to match. He quoted the price as...

Re: Need advice on what/if to paint...

It may not even be the chrome, it might just be shiny things. Very nice people, but very simple. Shiny or green and they flock to you.

Well, I can do a compromise then. I will have the rear...

Re: Need advice on what/if to paint...

In regards to the bull bar reference- I have 3 marks on that bar from people backing into me. Now maybe they would have stopped in the 3 inches that bar sticks out from my car, but that's already...

Re: Need advice on what/if to paint...

I am antichrome at heart, but there is just so much on this car and after the amount of work I've done to get it looking like this, it makes me twitch to think that I would rub off all the chrome...

Need advice on what/if to paint...

Re: What car are you dumping to make room for your WK2?

Seems appropriate to put this here following another M owner. My first car - 98 M3 Sedan. Sad to see it go but it was good for the 9 years we spent together......

Re: I got my first door ding this weekend.

What areas of the door are most susceptible to door dings? Does the chrome strip help to deter them or is it worthless? Would nerf bars offer the best protection?

Re: 2012 Laredo with Steelcraft Nerf Bars

In regards to the door ding protection- Would I lose any protection by removing the chrome strips and putting on the bars? Too much chrome for me to have both, but don't want to lose any protection.
