Thanks HC, but I'm not sure those are ferric grey, they look a little darker and a bit more glossier, although it could be the pic.

I was never really happy with the silver 17's but the 18" give a good balance without going too far. I want my car to be individual without looking like I've just ram raided halfords!
I like it I think!

can you do some more pictures please to help me make up my mind! im thinking of either doing this, or getting LM's!

Hmm just checked and Ry1978 hasn't logged on here since last August. I fear we may not get more details. I'll drop him a PM which may go to his email address.

well, i got the message!

It's been quite a while since I've been on the site. It seems that you want to know about the colour of my wheels. They were actually painted in a 'bespoke' colour that was mixed for me at the body shop. It was a metallic silver with metallic black and a splash of blue! They are dark but when they're clean and the sun hits them the sparkle looks amazing.
As I mentioned i knew the guys at the shop and they had done the same for a previous car, the only trouble now is I have no way of matching the colour, they gave me the left over paint for any touch ups that became necessary (kerbing etc.) but that is about as much help as i can give you about the colour. Sorry!

If there is anything else you want to know just give me a shout.

Thanks for getting back with the pics. In the absense of a colour code I'll guess I'll have to look at some more pics!!

I always fancied that colour on MV3. Thats why I went for gunmetal CSLs this time.
They are up and fitted on my car.
