    Hi all! Finally ordered a 100D after driving multiple BMW X5s for the last 10 years...

    I ordered a white one with standard silver rims. Any suggestions on where I can powder coat them black? Any pics from anyone who’s done this?

    Was also thinking about doing a chrome delete and tinting.

    I heard it mentioned here that a specific tint should be used with thermal properties to reduce cabin temp. Any suggestions on the brand?

    Thank you!

    spectra photosync seems to be one of the top rated ones for heat rejection. its hard to find an installer that carries it though.
