Sometimes pearls done with 'proper' paint in a gun will have an extra step, but I've never seen an aerosol use this system. I've only ever seen them with the pearl mixed into the colour.

The same as a metallic. It's just got the 'pearls' suspended in the colour coat instead of flat metallic particles.

Prime, colour, lacquer. flat and polish afterwards if required.

In my experience fiat paint is reasonably hard, but tends to be very thin so be careful if you need to start and real polishing.

Had black wheels on my lancia and loved them, but they were a solid chunky style so there was no way they'd get visually 'lost' in the arches. The car was also a metallic black while the wheels were...

They will quite often polish out if they're not too deep.

I've had it a few times with solvent based paints and it can usually be saved.

Leave it a little longer, and hopefully with some warm...

A hole on a non structural panel like a front wing can be bridged with a fibreglass strand filler before using normal filler and paint, but you would need to completely remove the rust from both...

It's nothing new, I remember reading about people having their mtech bldykits stolen off their BMW e30s, or people nicking e36 m3 wing mirrors 20 years ago.

It's not nice, but unfortunately there...

220nm will probably just about cope with wheel bolts but they're more for driving screws into wood than nuts and bolts.

Both Febi and lemforder make oe BMW stuff, so they're the two brands I tend to try and look for for my bmws.

Many are the exact same part just with the BMW badge and part number ground off.

Try some cellulose thinners on a rag, just be careful it's not going to affect the original paint.

That's pretty poor. Wonder how they would react to a warranty claim in 5-10 years when it starts to rust? Probably claim it's not covered as it's been damaged and not a failure of the rust proofing.

I've not used power seal but have a ton of fusso, and believe me, it will last years and years. Firstly because the coating lasts so long and secondly because you need to use so little to coat a car.

Mk2 golf and BMW e30 have the same pcd and centre so yes, they will bolt on a 4 stud e30.

However et35 is a little high for an e30. Standard 7x15 e30 bbs are et24 from memory.
