Alloy colour

Post by salman12319 » Mon Apr 17, 2017 2:56 pm

Looking to get my alloys refurbed soon any ideas for colour that goes well with sparkling graphite or stick to silver?

I'd be staying with silver, or maybe a nice shadow chrome.

For a comparison, I went with Gun Metal grey, quite close to the Sparkling Graphite;

I also swapped those blue and white roundels for black and white's; blue doesnt go with an invisible car.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

I wouldn't go any darker than mine... becomes a bit mono tone. Much more aggressive than silver

Looks quite nice. Not too over the top.

Had mine done in Shadow Chrome about a year ago. Pics dont do them justice and hadn't washed the car for a few weeks. Had them done at our good friends MStyle :D They leant me some loaner wheels for the week whilst mine were getting done. Was really pleased with their service and price.
