Just took delivery of our DG FX35 Tech. Beautiful. The factory Chrome 20's make all the difference in the world. Dealer had it sitting on showroom floor when we arrived. Said he had 4 people order chrome 20's after seeing it. Also had the front windows tinted to match the rear. Only have about 65 miles on her but it's an extrordinary performer. Will post pics soon.

Do you mind sharing what they charged you for those chromed wheels?

03-01-2003, 01:58 PM
I got them at the dealer's cost $650.00

Do you have a picture of your chromed wheels? Are the center caps chromed plastic too? What process did they use and what sort of warranty did you get on the chrome wheels? $650 sounds like a great price, but as they say the devil is in the details...

The wheels are warrantied for the term of the lease and they used the same process DFW described. The only reason I got that deal is the GM is a friend, and I think they were willing to do it for exposure purposes. These things aeren't exactly flying off the lot (as has been discussed in this forum). I will try to get some pics posted as soon as I figure out how. I'm new to this.

You can upload your pics to: www.montypics.com (http://www.montypics.com) for free!


For sake of simplicity, make sure you have at least 2 webpages open ... this way you can toggle back and forth between FA and the website where the picture is that you want to post.

1. In your FA post click the image button under "instant ubb code", it will prompt you for the address to your image.

2. DO NOT PUT THE ADDRESS TO THE WEBSITE that the image is on, what you need to do is go to the webpage that the image is on and RIGHT CLICK ON THE IMAGE ITSELF (the specific image you want to show in your post) and select properties.

3. After clicking properties, a little window will open, in the window you will see the Address: URL this is the true address to the picture and the one you need to put in the FA post. Just highlight it with your mouse and copy it.

4. Insert that address into the FA post and then you will have it!

Remember it's not the link to the website you want, it's the picture's link that you get when you right click on the image itself.

It will look like this when you are typing the post(minus the spaces befor and after the link)

but when you hit preview...it should come up.

That's very interesting that it only costs $650 (dealer cost) to chrome the 20" wheels. Yet most Infinit dealers will tell you close to $2,000 for chroming the smaller 18" G35 Coupe wheels. Can you say "highway robbery"?

No matter what they tell you, that's were stealers make all their money, on the accessories added later, and extended warranties, etc. They are the bread&butter.

Yea, I had dealers quote me anywhere from $1800 to $2400 for chrome 20's. Quite a profit margin. Thanks for the info Jason B. Should have those pics posted tomorrow.

Got one pic to post, will post some more tomorrow http://pics.montypics.com/jhldeans/2003-03-06/dscf0136.jpg
