Sparkling graphite E92 w/ TE-37 mag blue YES/NO?

I would say its a yay or yeeks affair. Just seeking some opinions.

First shows the original pic with my matte Breytons and then photoshop of TE-37 in mag blue (which I have sent one to spray, the one not taken from website) which I have put in front of the breyton.

What do you think before I send the full set of TE-37s for mag blue..?

Wanna go for the COTM when all is done up in and outside!!!!! (ok, i know there are many out there which can beat mine to it)


**updates**
This was posted a while ago and when the rims are getting delivered, and I have to say it was still a good decision to go with the color, I'm absolutely loving it. Next stop: changing to space grey. Enjoy the pictures!

SG is a tricky color. Go black, or hyper silver, etc. Stay within the shades of the SG.

Indeed SG is a tricky color which lies between the dark but can be bright when given with light, the TE-37s are in matte black now, which you will see in the photo I have attached.

When in sunlight it will looks something like in the 2nd photo. Apoloy to EAS for using their photo. This is strictly for personal use and no commercial.

Hi Thamer, to a certain extend I agree with you on this, judging how many s.graphite e92s running on black (BBS, HRE.. etc) which can do no wrong, this mag-blue is 85% close to the original mag blue but its more blue-ish, which the 2nd round for spray will be darken with black a bit more.

I personally like the BBS meshed with the red centre caps and red Brembo calipers though..

Yes, but to a certain extend its the rim as well, 2nd spray will make them close to the color by darkening the mag-blue.

Usually, I'm very conservative when it comes to colored wheels, but in this case I really like the blue wheels. If I were you, I would definitely go for it .

I would do it because it looks great. I'm not sure bout the COTM because many people will say it's too JDM.

Looks really good. If you don't go with that color option, go brushed. Can't go wrong with that
