Re: LED headlights

I second Don's remarks about LED replacement headlights. You must be careful about which brand you buy because of the reflector plate position. The hot spot on many LEDs will not align with the reflector. This causes blinding glare to any oncoming driver.

Just went through my 4th winter with the Chrome wrap. All's good. The car is garaged.

Re: WTB I-Miev factory alloy wheels.

Thank you to everyone who responded. I got a set of factory alloy wheels, had them powder coated in "chromey silver, and mounted. They look great against the chrome vinyl wrap. Thanks

Re: Anyone tried wrapping iMiev with glossy vinyl?

Hi Folks; There's a post earlier in this thread about the longevity of vinyl wraps. I have that shiny silver/chrome colored one mentioned above. I am now going through my third winter here in Oregon - snow and rain (mostly rain). I have had only a little lifting around the front wheel well. Other th...

Re: Aerodynamic Mods to Reduce Drag

Hi jray3; Thanks for the response. I know the "crinkled" noise. Yes, mine makes the same noise. But I sure do like the look. The disks I'm using are the same spun stainless. However, when i look at the stock plastic hubcaps, and the stainless ones, I notice that the shoulder on the plastic...

Re: Aerodynamic Mods to Reduce Drag

Hi JoeS; These caps are just ordinary 15-inch hubcaps I found on E-bay. But I have had a problem with keeping them on! lol. And I only have that problem on the driver's side front wheel. I have thrown 2 of them off the car when going over potholes at speed. :roll: I have no problems with the other t...

Re: Anyone tried wrapping iMiev with glossy vinyl?

Here is an pic taken while the car was being wrapped at Kolorwerks. Notice the attention to detail. Kevin removed the lights, hood, door handles so he could wrap the vinyl into the cavities, and the wrap tight. Nice job. Not cheap.

Re: Anyone tried wrapping iMiev with glossy vinyl?

[code] [/code]Hello; About one year ago, I had a vinyl wrap done on my I-Miev. Kolorwerx, here in Portland, Oregon did the wrap, and Kevin did an outstanding job. I could not pick a "favorite color", so I went with pure silver chrome-like. Several people in parking lots have asked me if t...
