: I have the z3 poster of the rear of a red 2.8 that says "Thanku" on the license plate. Got it from my dealer in case you're wondering.
: Anyway, something that always fascinates me in this picture is the blackness of the tires. I'm talking about the flat side that actually touches the ground (I suppose it has a name.) It's easy to clean the sidewalls of tires, but how do you get the tops to look that clean?
: The only reason I'm wondering is because I'll probably put the car in a detailing competition/car show in my town this summer.
: My thought would be to somehow drive the car slowly through water in some type of container, but don't know how that would work. I suppose dumping water out of a bucket might do it, too. Haven't tried this. Obviously, anything that I'd do would have to be on site because as soon as the car was driven, there would be dust on them again.
