Amazing result on the engine bay clean up. Well done.


I think the E60 generation 5er is the best 5 series they ever made, lovely car!

And thank you sir

Tidy motor my friend. The wheels look to me like sparkling graphite, a BMW colour. A while back I refurbed some old prelude wheels in the same colour. You can get it at Halfraud's, though paints 4u or some such may be a closer match.

Thanks for identifying the paint colour President Swirl, it’s likely I’ll get them refurbished Ferric Grey as I think they’re a bit dark and they do need some TLC.

PedroC see above though dude, could be Sparkling Graphite

Does anyone know where I can replacement centre cap badges reasonably priced while on the subject of wheels?

Hey Matt.

I bought a set from eBay for around 15 quid for all 4 centre caps. They're great. I did give them a quick rub with some Wolf's Bodyguard and Carpro PERL though before fitting them lol.
