....would you elaborate on your polishing method for the fins?
I used a mild cutting compound such as Brasso or T-Cut and they came up beautifully.

When the M635 was launched with the RS007s, did it have painted, or polished rims?
They were diamond cut. I have a local guy who can do it.

You won't find them on a UK car.
