Looks really good. You consider working the green into the roundel at all? Might look like hell but then again could tie it together nicely.

Didn't realize it was CF. In that case I'd try one with BMW in green. Wheel seems like it need a bit of color someplace.

What was your shops procedure for powder coating? Do they remove the wheels at that shop? I'm trying to figure out how the hell to get my wheel powdercoated but the shop I go to doesn't remove tires.... So I'm guessing I'd have to leave my car on a rack for a day, drive my wheels over seperately which is a huge pain in the ass lol

Wheels need to be dismounted, definitely. Since I own my shop and did my own work, I brought them to the tire store, had them dismounted, coated them and then brought them back for remount.

I require customers to bring them dismounted though.

Looks great Mike! I am contemplating doing this with my wheels once the car arrives....either a matte black or a dark bronze color.

The green calipers look great
How about the caliper bushing, do you have to remove them before powder coating?
I want to get my M5 calipers powder coated, any advice will be very helpful
Thanks

They can handle the heat, but they should be removed

Gloss Black is nice. I'm big fan of the German style where the wheels are the same color as the car.
