Thanks for the comment...now I am hating myself for not getting my car in white or grey because the matte grey Breytons would have been a killer match to those color cars. For arctic silver, the tone is kind of a mid-grade and matte grey is mid-grade as well...yeah the match will be stealthy but it lacks that head-turning characteristic. I have another day to think it through but in the meantime more comments please??

This is the gunmetal Breyton Race GTS wheels on AW... What I like a lot is how different they look under different lighting conditions...

Sorry no outdoor pictures yet, just drove for a few hours and now I'm

People were looking and pointing at the wheels Made my day...

must say, the colouring of the gunmetal looks good so far... that's what was worrying me

More pictures It's surprising how many empty parking lots there are close to where I stay. Also met two ricers and one more looker just now too, but I was driving like a grandma, looking out for potholes

I am running 8.5x19 all round, because
o it's got X-drive, staggering's mostly for looks
o but I suspect most people aren't enthusiasts, so things like staggering and flush-ness will be totally wasted on them
o concavity of 8.5 seems pretty close to 9.5, so I'm happy
o would like to be able to rotate tires

Suspension is stock, it's a lease. Oh, and it's 245/35/19 Generals all round too That gives pretty good rim protection, and hopefully non-negligible additional traction. Compared to previous 17" Continental RFTs, ride seems quieter. Not sure about harshness of ride, seems to be the same, but then I'm butt-deaf
