I wish you could go titanium color or something like that. I love those wheels and when you throw black on them you can barely see their features any more.

That's why I prefer gunmetal/titanium. But between the two choices he threw out, I'm a matte black guy over some glossy shiet.

I know right it's been a hard debate but black is way more aggressive plus if I get new calipers In a cool color then they would be allot more visable

I don't hate black, but my (soon-to-be-ex)wife was the one to state to me that black rims appear like your rolling on spares. Ever since that comment I wont go darker than gunmetal...Hyper black is hawt (another story)! Just throwin that out there.

Agreed.

Yeah, it's aggressive but at the end of the day, you (and I) have a 328. It's not an aggressive car. And you painting your calipers will only show how small your rotors are.

gloss black, invisible rims and get dirty easily..

matte black always look dirty and look weird when the tyres are shiny

both will make the rim look smaller on 18"s

my opinion, get spacers and drop.. if you really want to paint them go with gloss black.


good luck..
